Like many photographers, I too caught the photo-bug at an early age. Toting a camera almost every where I went growing up, I eventually pursued photography at the University of South Carolina (BA) and Southern Illinois University Carbondale (MFA). Since 2006 I have been happy to be a part of the professional photographic community serving a wide range of clients and even wider range of needs.
I really enjoy the challenges of being a photographer working to create artworks that don't just fulfill a purpose, but personally speak to the viewer. It's these aesthetic challenges that keep me coming back for more.
Also, especially in my personal and fine art work, I love working with film. No, this isn't some hipster bandwaggon nonsense; film has been a part of the photographic process for me since I first started using the medium. It provides a uniquely different process compared to digital and an ineffable quality to the photographs that I make. It allows me to make HUGE prints with exquisite detail and capture colors, textures, and character that digital cannot reproduce.
