For their February 2013 issue, Popular Photography Magazine interviewed me about one of my more challenging and technical pictures from my portfolio.

About a year ago, I worked with the brilliant Suzanne Sease on a huge portfolio overhaul. She went through over a 1000 of my images and came up with what what you’ve seen here for a while. Her art buyer eye really helped me tighten the flow of my portfolio to help me get the [...]

I’m a little late for an end of year review, but here it is none the less. Speaking purely from a financial point of view, 2011 was a lot like 2010 in that it was way better than 2009, but not quite as good as 2008. However, the photographs I created in 2011 are some of [...]

I don’t usually make big changes to my portfolios halfway through the year, but after some soul searching and various feedback, I realized I needed help in refining my vision.

I don’t consider myself to be niche photographer. Rather, I have a style of photography that works well across several genres and I focus on my favorite [...]
I’ve always had the philosophy that architectural photography is more interesting when you have a people in the shot. A person will give a sense of scale to the building or interior. It also helps you relate to what you’re seeing. And sometimes, it’s great just to have something to fill out the composition. In [...]

This last year I spent a lot of energy narrowing down my specialties: architecture, lifestyle, and still life. I like to think of myself as a specific generalist. Between these three specialties, I can handle almost any kind of shoot. But getting a consistent and distinct look between all three specialties is the real trick. [...]
