As a photographer, I look for the stories that surround us and try to capture them. I try to either tell the stories or capture an image that leads the viewer down a path of discovering the stories. When it comes to portraits, this means capturing not just a quality image, but capturing the essence of my subjects. Capturing the essence of someone helps tell that person’s individual story.

Outside of portraiture, my primary subject matter are those objects and locales out here in rural America that are decaying. It’s only a matter of time before those stories are lost to history. It’s my hope to help bring and keep these stories alive. With that said, being happily married, my beautiful wife is, by far, my favorite photographic subject.
