Based out of Anchorage, Alaska, but love to go to the ends of the earth taking pictures & telling stories through my work. I personally edit each image, presenting the best portfolio to each client.
As a life-long Alaskan, my passion for photography began with the simple click of a shutter at age 6.
I pursued my love of photography with a borrowed 35mm film camera and a wet darkroom in high school. I became a yearbook photographer and was hooked. In college I continued my aspirations by working as a photo editor for the Northern Light Newspaper at University of Alaska/Anchorage before pursuing my BFA, with primary emphasis on photography, at the University of New Mexico. In 2007, I was honored to have one of my photographs selected by the Nature’s Best International Awards to be displayed in a group show at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. I’ve been included in several juried group shows, Alaska Positive (at the State Museum in Juneau), All Alaska Biennial, Rarefied Light put on by the Alaska Photographic Center, and AlaskaWild, put on by the Alaska Society of Outdoor and Nature Photographers, which I currently serve on the board. I have also shown my work at numerous solo and group shows around Alaska.
As a professional photographer, I’m inspired by the challenge of creating images in diverse situations and environments whether I’m photographing skiers in the backcountry, a wedding on the beach in Mexico, or oil workers on the North Slope.
When I am not working, you will find me enjoying Alaska’s backcountry with my camera around my neck, and my pup, Zoey by my side.
