Storytelling Comes First
(and 2nd, 3rd and 4th)

It’s not enough to take a good photo, it’s about telling a story with your photo. This is what I’ve dedicated myself to for the past 29 years: telling stories in pictures. From shooting fireworks to fire breathers, my goal is to capture the story hidden in life’s unique moments. I’m a photojournalist by trade so I’ve shot everything under the sun and the moon, but I love taking pictures of people most of all. I’ve shot with almost every camera brand out there, and currently favor mirrorless cameras. When I’m not taking photos, I love teaching people how to take better photos. From Seattle to Rome, I’ve taught thousands of people the key secrets and steps to telling stories in pictures.

P.S. I’ve also flown the Goodyear Blimp. Yes, really.
