I am a Seattle based photographer specializing in Sports, Portraits and landscapes, but I'll take any opportunity to travel! When I'm not behind my camera and running my business, you'll find me volunteering at my local animal shelters, exploring national parks or spending time with my fur babies.

EXPERTISE

My work focuses on capturing a moment in time, whether it's portraiture, lifestyle imagery or just the perfect light.

To me, sports photography is actually a variety of photography specializations rolled into one genre. The really good sports photographers will find themselves doing many different things. At times they might be doing meaningful, environmental portraits. And at other times they’re trying to tell a story in 10 pictures as opposed to making one picture that embraces everything that you want to say. Then, finally you get to event photography, and that’s just a part of what most people think of as sports photography. What that entails is covering sports events in a way that makes interesting, high quality pictures while at the same time telling the story of the event

"I truly believe that a good sports photographer must master many types of photography. On any given game day she or he might get a broad shot of a stadium (architecture), a close–up of an athlete giving an autograph to a fan (lifestyle), the home run hit that decides the game (action), or a stack of branded baseball bats (product). Not only because of the variety of demands at each event, but also due to the changing nature of the market for sports photography in general, many freelancers are learning to expand what it means to be a sports photographer.

“The challenging side is not only being able to be an ‘action’ photographer, but also an artist, an editorial photographer, and a commercial photographer.”

There comes a point when every photojournalist really needs to have something to say. I get very frustrated when photographers say, “I’m just going to go there and document whatever happens.” You have to know what it is that you’re trying to say. There’s got to be a point of view."

I've been practicing the art of making the invisible, visible since 2008. Through my evocative landscapes and sports images, I attempt to inject a refreshing eye for composition and technique, inviting you the viewer into my world.

When it comes to natural settings, it is my intent to have my images transport you away from the day-to-day hustle to a place where peace and tranquility sooth and refresh the soul along the way.

I believe beauty exists everywhere, but we are so rushed in today's on demand society that it's virtually invisible. It is not my intent to document a scene. Rather, my intent is to make the beauty around us more visible. To provide a moment of reflection where you see what I see.
