I am always playing with it, using it, and aware of it's effect on my subject. I have been involved with it personally and the sports that depend on it. As an avid surfer, sup-er mountain biker, skateboarder, snowboarder, I control my own gravitational fall line. It's inevitably that gravity will pull me down from my endeavors at some point for good, so I try to make every moment count, and I enjoy shooting all aspects of life that depend on gravity and chance, it's why I show the natural flow of life from beginning to the end in my body of work, and why I don't like to limit myself as a photographer capturing people, places and things, all in their decisive moments, all in a single frame.
My love of both micro, and macro photography is why I like the large open environmental shots that let me breath, as well as the small micro shots that let me slow down for a close up perspective that we can easily miss.
My work has been featured in numerous advertising campaigns, magazines and catalogs all over the world, and I have done vast amounts of studio lighting, with people, and product related work in my career, all in addition to my love of location work. I bring this diverse experience to all my work, and adapt it to whatever the challenge or request may be. I was also a leader at the forefront of when fashion, sports culture, and a healthy lifestyle became the focus of a balanced-well lived life. I blend very true aspirational substance, with a touch of radical simple truth, and this edge brought to all my work is the key to images that will endure in the world of art and advertising.
