About Me


***I am currently traveling more than I am home.
Travel schedule:

June 20th - July 1st, 2011 -- I will be all over the eastern and southeastern USA (minnesota/wisconsin/iowa/indiana/ohio/illinois/missouri/kentucky/tennessee/alabama/georgia) on a photographic roadtrip. There is a photographers/model meetup. Please feel free to message me on FACEBOOK if you'd like to shoot.

July 11th - July 28th, 2011 (France/Switzerland/Italy) -- This is a personal trip, but also offers a ton of opportunity for shooting with models in gorgeous historical areas, from paris to florence to provence. Though my time is limited during these dates, I'm am ALWAYS open to shooting the right person. xx

***IF YOU HAVE A FACEBOOK and would like to stay in touch, ADD ME!! I am on there MUCH more than over here, and it's how I keep in touch with what I need, when I need it for shoots & projects...



Alright, down to business:


I'm a 28 year old Fine Art Conceptual Photographer (based in Mpls/MN) looking for a limited number of MALE & FEMALE models as well as creative teams in the Midwest who are interested in collaborating on upcoming conceptual projects for private collections, international publications, and an upcoming photographic book that I'm in the process of writing. Most of my pieces also end up on authors' book covers via publishing houses and image libraries. It's not uncommon to see my work at your local barnes and noble, or borders. I exhibit both locally, and nationally in several permanent gallery installations. Currently Represented by UniversKA agency in Paris & the leading image galleries in the world.

I shoot almost exclusively on location, but also have a studio west of the Twin Cities in MN.

If you work with me, please note, you may be included in one of the projects listed above. ALL work for these projects will be on a *TFP basis.

----> I do test w/ agency models, and love to do so, but unless it's for MY book, MY concept, and I feel you could add to MY portfolio, Photography is a business to me, and my rates to shoot to update YOUR portfolio are incredibly reasonable. | So, if you are needing a shoot, please never be afraid to ask. :)

Drop me a note to say hello.
I'm very easy going, and love meeting and seeing new faces! I know a lot of people in this industry can be intimidating, but I'm not one of them. I like to keep my shoots fun, and do my best to make everything as beautiful as possible. Photography is my career, but more importantly - it's also my very heartbeat.

Best to you all & thank you for stopping by!
