A little about me...

When I first picked up a camera it was for a snow reporting position at my local ski mountain in Carrabassett Valley, Maine. While the majority of my duties included writing and gathering weather reports, there were a couple hours every day where it was just me and that camera, snapping away at speeding skiers and hiding behind snowbanks to get the perfect shot. Sometimes just trying to get a shot was a task. It was learn on the go and I was hooked.

Nearly a decade later and a lot has changed. Along the way I've picked up a couple of crazy dogs and an amazing wife Taylor who has blessed me with two beautiful children. in 2016 we started a small dog daycare and boarding facility on our family farm (want to see some dog pictures?)

Unfortunately after almost 5 years of hard work and sacrifice Covid-19 caused us to shut down, and while I'm nervous for what the future holds for my family, I'm also thrilled to be able to focus my attention on my photography and creative processes once again. 

A bit more...

My biggest passion is without a doubt my family, but I also love to ski - the fresher the tracks the better! I love to travel and taking the road less traveled (truly it has made all the difference) and have been incredibly fortunate to visit many countries within Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America. Put it this way- I enjoy a good culture shock!

I love using natural light and the outdoors in my photography. I am a laid back kind of person and I really gravitate toward movement and laughter; I enjoy capturing the moment when it's candid, real, and full of life.. It's these combinations of qualities that I believe allows me to stay versatile, keeps my clients at ease, and ultimately sets me apart from other photographers.
