My fascination with photography started my senior year of high school when I took my first class. It was the one subject that I actually enjoyed. Homework was a pleasure rather than a chore, it was enjoyable rather than boring. I was originally taught to shoot with film, develop and process in the dark room. In 2000 I started taking photoshop classes and soon bought my first digital camera. After graduating high school I went off to the Art Institute of Phoenix where I studied Web Design. I quickly realized it wasn't for me. I decided to move back to Salt Lake City and follow my passion for photography. I enrolled at Salt Lake Community College (surprisingly they had one of the best photography program in Utah). I graduated in 2005 from the Visual Art and Design program and immediately started working as a freelance photographer.
Since then I have obtained my own studio, gained recognition and have shot with some amazing people. This job has allowed me to have some life changing experiences, including a 10 week shoot around the country for the U.S Army and working with artists I look up to such as Tycho. My work has also been featured in Luerzer Archives "200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide".
Aside from photography I am a dedicated family man who loves spending time with my wife, Morgen and our two daughters Payton and Isla. We spend our off time traveling, cooking vegan, geeking out to music, camping and hiking.
