I am a fun loving, personable photographer that enjoys making new friends through my obsession with entertainment and music photography. Apart from being a full time father to three amazing boys and husband of 10 years to my beautiful wife, I am a full time freelance music photographer and videographer.

     I live my mantra of "Capture The Experience", whether that is working with one of the 500 artists that have graced the stage in front of my lens, shooting unique and captivating portraits of musicians, photographing models under a sky full of stars, giving justice to a breathtaking landscape, or capturing the small details that so many overlook, I do it with precision and discipline. 

      In my time as a professional photographer I have had images on the cover of Apollo Magazine, cover photo of multi-platinum artist Mark Chesnutt's 15th full length album Tradition Lives, National Geographic Published "In This Together" image for sustainability story, published work through South Dakota Tourism and United States Army Corps of Engineers for landscape and environmental images, and real estate photography work with Jaguar racing legend Bill Terry. I have have images featured in dozens of advertisements and articles throughout several smaller magazines including RattleMag UK, Highlight, and Music and Mayhem, LA, GoldTone Instruments, and more. 

     I am always looking for new challenges in photography while blending my personal vision with bands brands.
