Embarking on my photographic journey over two decades ago, I've cultivated a rich and diverse portfolio that spans many high-profile platforms. As a published photographer, my work has graced Southern Living Magazine, newspapers, and billboards, all while proudly calling Richmond, Virginia, my creative home.
My photographic endeavors extend beyond newsprint, with notable exhibitions at the Virginia Museum of History and Culture. My series for the Flying Squirrels was featured on their program covers and also found a home on the stadium walls. If you visit the Maymont Nature Center, you will be greeted by a 65 ft wide image I captured of the James River.
My imagery has traversed borders, finding publication and success in many countries, both in traditional print media and digital platforms. Noteworthy domestic features include showcases by Southern Living, CBS, NBC, Virginia Tourism, Kentucky Tourism, and Indiana Tourism.
I've partnered with many well-known brands in commercial photography, such as The Richmond Symphony, Capital One, ISL Futbol/FC Barcelona Escola, The Flying Squirrels, HCA Hospitals, and Maryland Tourism. My visual narratives grace billboards, walls, and boardrooms and accompanying articles in numerous newspapers and magazines.
Rooted in my beginnings as an action sports photographer, my work has been highlighted in the USL, EPL, NBC Sports, and the Richmond Times-Dispatch. If you seek captivating images and a seamless journey from consultation to the final frame, I invite you to connect with me for an unparalleled experience.
