I am a photographer and short filmmaker based in the San Francisco Bay Area who has been creating beautiful imagery for over two decades.

Everything I do, whether it is creating photographs or short films, is with the goal of bringing more beauty into the world.

I have enjoyed a range of commissions, from intimate one-on-one portrait shoots to chronicling million dollar events to fashion shoots with large crews working under my direction. Simply put, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t; even the ability to work with the most timid person in front of the camera.

No matter the size of your project, I will give you my all and more to create the imagery you need.

Available for travel.
