How did you get started with photography

I started as a photographer as a child due to my great grandmother having a massive collection of cameras she purchased at yard sales. I was fascinated with being able to freeze moments in time. I became a professional paid photographer and cinematographer in the early 2000's. I have shot everything from family portraits, commercial and residential real estate, behind the scenes in Hollywood film, fashion, lifestyle, editorial, and street.

What do you love about your job?

I love putting my signature on everything I shoot. I love the smile on each and every clients face when they see the final product. I love to work autonomously and focus on details.

What are some of your favorite places in Chicago to take photographs?

In Los Angeles, downtown was without a doubt my favorite place to shoot. In Chicago, I love to shoot downtown as well.
