About Me

Here you can learn a little more about me, and also how to contact me if that need arises. 

So who am I? 

Well who am I? I am a photographer who shoots the natural world around him. Someone who is fascinated by the diversity of my surroundings so much so that  I am compelled to photograph everything from landscapes and wildlife, to weatherscapes and insects. If it is a part of our world, I love to see it and capture its beauty.  I am also a member of the Olympus Visionary Program, a Vanguard Professional and a NiSi Filters Brand Ambassador. In regards to my role as an Olympus Visionary, I've been a part of this incredible program since 2012 and work as a brand ambassador for them which means I get to not only have access to some of the most innovative camera gear available, but I also get to travel and teach photography while representing them.  I am also the founder and one of the hosts of the Mirrorless Minutes webshow and podcast with fellow Olympus Visionary Mike Boeing.  And last....But certainly not least....I am a husband and father of two incredible young men. My family motivates me to be the best person I can in everything I do, and that includes my photography.

So what do I do?

I take photos!! Actually, I prefer to say that I create imagery that is born of my imagination and inspired by the world I live in. Pretty heady stuff eh? A less artsy way of putting it would be that I make images that express how I felt when I shot the photo. Not necessarily how it looked when I was there. What does that even look like? Try this one on for size.

Is there anything else I do?

Of course!! When I am not spending time with my family, or out making dramatic images, I can be found creating content for Youtube. This content is usually educational in nature, but sometimes it is just a product reveal or review.  Have a look at the video below to get an idea of the type of videos I create.
I also happen to be the founder of a popular video podcast all about mirrorless cameras. The podcast called MIRRORLESS MINUTES.... Go check it out! 

I do even more than this! Crazy isn't it?!

Aside from the photography, the video content creation, the non-stop social media posting...I do more.  I run workshops with fellow Olympus Trailblazer Mike Boening, participate in one of the largest photography conferences in the United States(Out of Chicago), and also do presentations and workshops for Olympus Imaging North America.


Some accomplishments I am proud of:

The launch of the Olympus OM-D E-M10 featured my work as the primary images in the ad campaigns in both North and South America. The images were featured in the following publications:  Sports Illustrated, Outside Magazine, Esquire, Travel and Leisure, Popular Science, Golf, En Route (Air Canada), PDN, Digital Photo Magazine, Popular Photography, American Photo, Rangefinder, Professional Photographer, and several other trade publications.

So there ya have it....Me in a nutshell. If you feel like reaching out for anything feel free to use the contact form below, or get ahold of me through any of my social media outlets...You can find those by clicking on those cool little aqua blue icons scattered about my website.  

Thanks for dropping in and I hope to see you out shooting some time!
