I am based out of the great city of Chicago. Go Bulls!
I take pictures of everything and anything mostly. I do this full time so anything I can get my hands on I’ll do, yet I try to be selective with the projects I choose. I like to do fashion photography the most though. That’s my main portfolio.
Uff I use a variety of camera’s. Depends on what I am looking for. Digital I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and film I shoot with a Mamiya C330 TLR, Nikon FM2, Contax T2, Fuji Instax, and a Lomo LC-A
I had a photography class in college but I dropped out after the second time I went because it was going to be way too expensive. So technically no, I am not formally trained. All self taught.
My influences are cliche – films, music, and other artists. I look at a lot of fashion magazines and blogs. Throughout the day an Idea just jumps at me regarding a pose or style and I quickly sketch it or jot it down somewhere for future use.
Hmm I’d like to say shooting for more magazines or brands and maybe celebs. I’m not looking to be a millionaire or anything. Just want a chance to show my work, get better at it and to make people’s eyes happy and hopefully keep making a decent living. I’m thinking of trying video out. I went to school for illustration so quite possibly incorporate my illustration with my photography somehow. I’d like to show at more galleries, sell photo books and prints.
Pizza, Watches, Antique Stores, Books, Movies, Tumblr, Wine and Scotch…And working with very talented people that help me get the exposure I need. It’s great meeting new people that are honest and hard working and are always willing to help. Having beautiful subjects is of course a plus also. (Cheesy smile) All these things make me happy!
FYI I am colorblind so I see colors a bit differently then the average person. I look for detail and color in my work just as I do with my illustration. Thanks for the opportunity and please keep following my work.
