I'm a Salt Lake City, UT based professional photographer specializing in family and commercial photography. My style has been described as loose, natural, and timeless. I love to shoot outdoors, crafting my images with natural light. 


When I was young, I idolized National Geographic photographers. I would thumb through the magazines and envision myself tracking wildlife, meeting exotic people in faraway places, and coming home with vivid images of them doing--well, doing what they do every day.

I set out to hone my photography skills with a few of my dad's old cameras (he had quite a collection). I started with 16mm film and strip flash bulbs and earned my way to slightly less ancient gear. Eventually I convinced my dad to let me borrow a nice little 35mm for a sailing camp in junior high.  Sadly that camera drowned at sea, but fortunately my dad was a good sport about it. When I turned sixteen, my parents gave me my first "real" camera as a birthday gift, a 35mm Nikon 6006. Although I would have preferred a car at the time, I was smitten with that camera. I began taking photography classes, and that was that. I was hooked.

My camera and I had the good fortune of traveling to a number of the places I had read about in National Geographic: South and Central America, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Madagascar, and all over the States. Although my globe trotting has slowed just a bit, I like to think that I am realizing my childhood dream, with a bit of a twist. As a photographer, I have met and photographed interesting and sometimes exotic people; I often find myself chasing after children in effort to capture them in their "natural habitat"; and somehow I managed to end up in the most amazing setting I could have imagined, nestled between the dramatic salt flats of the Great Salt Lake, the colorful beauty of the high desert, and the majestic Wasatch mountains.
