i picked up a camera a few years before moving to tahoe. i just kept shooting and learning as much as i could. it helped that i was surrounded by sort of a network of creative people who were great to collaborate with and bounce ideas off of. it’s the same today, i learn at school, from personal research, and from friends. when i got to snc, i realized that i could make a career doing something i care about and enjoy.
most of my work centers around my pursuits in the outdoors. i really enjoy expedition style shooting, and bringing back stories coupled with great imagery. as a skydiver with a fiery passion for flight, aerial photography is a visual niche that i am ecstatic about. i am blessed that i will start flying camera this summer. right now i’ve set my sights on making a powered paramotor (powered paragliding) expedition around iceland. i plan to explore and shoot the country from the air as a personal project.
“i grew up surfing in southern california. these days, fresh snow and skydiving get me out of bed in the morning. i came to snc to be in the mountains, but i stayed because of the faculty and community i have found here.”
recently i have been focusing on shooting video, both for myself and getting into the commercial world. after graduation i intend to pursue freelance editing and video production work, helping companies tell their stories. that way i can travel full time while i simultaneously save to buy land. within the next ten years i would like to obtain my pilots license, begin building my house, and keep traveling in pursuit of good surf, fresh snow, and blue skies.
