It all started my senior year of high school when I took a photography class from Mr. Curtis. It was the one class I actually enjoyed. Homework was a pleasure rather than a chore. Class was enjoyable rather than boring. I was taught to shoot with 35mm film, process and make prints. The darkroom was my happy place. After high school I went off to the Art Institute of Phoenix where I studied Web Design. I realized very quickly it wasn't for me. I moved back to Salt Lake City and started taking photography classes at Salt Lake Community College. Surprisingly they had a really good photography program with an amazing photo lab and studio. Even with the countless amounts of skepticism from people around me I decided to follow my heart and do what I loved. I finished the Visual Art and Design program there and immediately started working as a freelance photographer. Since then I have gained some amazing clientele and have had some life changing experiences, including a 10 week shoot around the country for the U.S Army. I absolutely love my job and I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else.
Aside from photography I am a passionate family man who loves spending time with my wife Morgen, our 11 year old daughter Payton, our newborn daughter Isla and our dog Oswald Jenkins (he looks exactly like Sprocket on Fraggle Rocks). We enjoy traveling, cooking vegan, geeking out to indie music, camping, hiking, etc. etc. etc. If it's outdoors then we're probably into it.
