I have created a unique world that keeps the west alive. It incorporates the outdoors. It incorporates fashion. It incorporates a touch of Hollywood and the spaghetti westerns that I’ve watched for years and years. This world is romantic and fun, and everyone in it has a chance to bring out their inner west. I’ve created this world, and now I’m inviting people and brands to come be part of it, to let my photography and creative direction tell their stories within this unique and gorgeous Wild West.

My dad raised me in the outdoors. He took me along camping ever since I was a baby. The way he taught me was the old, traditional style camping. I didn’t use a tent until I was 26 because I thought the only way to go camping was sleeping under the stars on the ground because that’s the way he taught me. We’d ride horses and feel like we were part of the Old West. It was a way of escaping, of embracing the natural world around us. 

Photography has taken me to so many places and so many industries. By shooting fashion, the outdoors, commercial and automotive, events and weddings, I’ve found that what I love most is shooting photos of people in their element. I love style, I love the outdoors, and I love telling the stories of unique characters through my photos. Photography has taken me all over the world, and all over the West. My years of shooting has given me great relationships with all kinds of incredibly talented people who I trust and who I am eager to continue to work with.

No matter where I go and what I shoot, I always come back to the West. It has a touch of the outdoors, the action, the style, the creativity, the people, the history, the characters, the storytelling. It’s a combination of everything I love. It lets me capture real people to tell authentic stories.
