In 2005 I started my first staff role as a stringer photojournalist for a local newspaper. Under the mentorship of John Lewin and the tutelage of my first editor, Paul Schmidt, I grew as a photojournalist. After finishing my BA in Anthropology from the University of South Florida, I started working for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a staff photographer and photo archivist. After two season with the team, I got married and started ProLocal and Sadie & Kyle shooting commercial and residential real estate and weddings respectively.
After moving to Charlotte, NC in 2016, I began focusing on aerial photography and delved even deeper into ProLocal. We closed down Sadie & Kyle to prepare for our second child. I obtained a NC real estate license and practiced real estate alongside photography until the business began establishing in our new home. Today I still hold my NC real estate license and use it to allow access to shoot listings and occasionally help people buy and sell real estate.
I still maintain this website as a portfolio for my work and an outlet for my photography. Even though most of my work today is done through ProLocal, I still work with commercial clients and occasionally shoot a wedding or two on weekends. And when I’m not doing any of those, I am always shooting for myself.
Other Photo Projects
Weddings, portraits, people.
My favorite photography subjects are people. I’ve always loved working with people to create stunning, natural portraits. On this website, I shoot weddings and almost any other kind of portraits including families, seniors, children and more.
Photos for pros.
I’ve photographed commercial and residential real estate for several years, but in 2015 I began ProLocal, a photography company aimed at realtors and local small businesses. We specialize in professional photography and films to help small businesses sell their services and products, primarily real estate.
