I’m a 30-something husband and father of two. My photography career began in 2005 where I worked as a photojournalist for a local newspaper. Along the way I have photographed theater & dance, people, places, sports (including for the NFL), real estate, aerial photography and life in general.
After so long, I’ve found I love photographing people the most. Everyone has a story, and we wear it for the world to see, some more than others. Tapping into that is what photography is all about for me. Whether it’s a wedding, portraits or something else, I make photos to be shared. I think this is the most important aspect of photography. Even if you’re just sharing it with a special few, photos deserve to be seen.
I started my passion – even before my career – in the darkroom. Photos were a tangible art there. From beginning to end, I was making real, physical things. Every decision, every chemical, every second would lead to a different result. Even though everything is digital now, I still hope to get that feeling out of my work.
If you want to learn more about how I photograph, let’s get together and talk in person. I prefer that over digital communication any day.
In addition to photographing people, I’ve got a few other projects I started which you can check out below.
Preserving History With Virtual Reality
In 2018, I decided to take my passions and combine them and started Preserving Spaces with my best friend Zac. For this project, we’re combining the technology behind 3d virtual tours, photography, videography, photogrammetry and a podcast. We hope to couple unique and interesting media with oral history and provide local communities with something special. Check it out if you’re interested in history, virtual reality, podcasts or oral history.
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. Our services include photography, videography, aerial drone content and 3d virtual tours using the Matterport system.
In addition to the media we create for agents, we also try to help agents utilize that content as best as possible. With a one-on-one relationship with each of our clients, we hope to educate them and provide actionable advice for how they can best use the content we create for them. ProLocal really believes that success for our clients means success for everyone involved.
