I took my first real photos in the summer of 2000. From the moment the film was developed I knew photography was something I wanted to pursue. Three years later I attended USD for a short time in pursuit of a more “reasonable” career choice. I spent the summers of 2004/05 in Sitka, Alaska selling art at a local gallery. With the support of my family and friends, I changed my career path and headed to Chicago to learn the art of photography. During those years in Chicago I worked through school as a tourist photographer.
In December 2006, I graduated with honors from Harrington College of Design: AAS in Photography. I opened the business shortly after and, in the Fall of 2007, built my studio. Because of the country setting, I’m able to offer a variety of studio and outdoor shots.
...photography should be affordable for everyone.
...that time flies too fast when we want to stop and enjoy it.
...the best pictures happen at moments when we least expect.
