“Cameras are amazing tools that allow us to capture things either as they are or how we would like to make them appear. I am extremely fortunate to have success in a career I enjoy so much.”


I grew up in Los Angeles and got into photography and video at a fairly young age. My father was really into photography as a hobby so he taught me all the workings of a camera with an old, manual Pentax 35mm SLR. At the time I was more fascinated with the mechanics of the camera. It wasn’t until I got into high school that I really started to value the art of photography.

In my early twenties I attended a few weddings of some friends and brought my camera along. It was at that point that I decided to pursue a career in professional photography. I began by shooting both photography and video at hundreds of weddings for a wedding house in Los Angeles. Over the years I’ve expanded my skills and portfolio and today I shoot many genres including weddings, portraits and headshots, commercial/lifestyle, product and real estate.

Regardless of who I’m working with I always treat everyone with respect and kindness and make sure I capture the best images possible. I enjoy what I do and I look forward for the opportunity to work with you. Please contact me to schedule an appointment.

Thank you,
