As a proud Northern Wisconsinite from a small blue collar town, Ian decided to take off and seek a route much different than the typical job opportunities that overtook the north. Camera in hand and car packed to the brim, he took off to South Carolina in his pursuit of becoming a master of his craft.
With just about nine years already committed to the craft of photography, Ian has vowed and promised to learn everyday. Drawing inspiration from the works of Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Ryan Brenizer, and Reuben Wu, Ian has found comfort in many genres of photography. In a world that has provided photography to be easily accessible to the masses, he strives to shoot intentionally to create less, but better. Learning multiple formats Ian prides himself in taking photography to levels that requires professionalism and commitment. With advanced lighting situations, medium format systems, and a firm understanding of event planning and logistics, Ian strives to reach levels of professionalism that are too often lost in the ease of accessibility in modern photography.

Working with Ian was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. We went into the photo shoot a little nervous (but still excited) and he made us feel so comfortable all the way through. He was so big on catching all of our “true” and “raw” moments, and boy did that come through in the pictures. We received our photos back in such a timely manner and we are blown away with how beautiful they were. Ian was absolutely professional and amazing to work with from beginning to end.Sent on 11/19/2018

Perfect Engagement Photos!
My fiance and I LOVED working with Ian!
We vacation to HHI every summer and this trip we scheduled an engagement shoot. We scheduled the shoot for the Monday. As we were arriving to the location the weather took a turn for the worse. Ian snapped a few quick photos and we ran back to our cars. Ian was so accommodating and worked with us all week to reschedule the shoot around the weather. It was very clear that he wanted this to work out for us. Thankfully it did and we were able to have an hour and half session that Wednesday morning! We had so much fun and enjoyed the session. Ian was experimenting with new/different ideas and considered what we wanted as well. We LOVE the photos! They are beautiful and exactly what I had envisioned. Thank you again Ian!
*I want to clarify that Ian only serviced our engagement photos, NOT our wedding. But if we lived and were getting married in South Carolina I would definitely have booked him!*Sent on 07/27/2020
