A little bit about me, and why you might just love to work with me…
I am a Photographic Artist based out of the Twin Cities. I specialize in Wedding & Lifestyle Portrait work, and I love to travel. My style blends fine art & photojournalism, with a little bit of fun. Like a hand-picked organic apple, my style is crisp, clean, and fresh. I gravitate towards bold colors, unique style, and a creative perspective. I love being in the zone to capture the unique personalities, interactions, and feelings in each tiny moment. And the fact that those tiny moments can come and go in an instant, and yet speak volumes when captured, is what I’m after.
I am very passionate about my craft. I absolutely love my work, and I love people too. I am laid back, fun, and easy going, yet I’m also highly aware, on point, and very professional at the same time. I’m a great listener, I’m patient, and I truly care about creating awesome photographs for each and every one of my clients…to cherish forever.
I’m moved by music, nature, travel, organic gardening, big ideas, and all things creative.
I value honesty, integrity, a good sense of humor, and old fashioned hard work.
I’m a family man myself and father of two of the sweetest boys in the whole wide world…IMHO…and they have the most wonderful mother as well….love you sweetie! I’m a very active and fun father and I get along really well with kids. Maybe because I’m kind of a big kid myself. I love hearing my clients rave after our session, about how their kids warmed right up to me and had a blast.
As the highest rated ‘green’ photographer in Minnesota, I create and deliver ultra-premium pieces of fine art to my couples and families…that are meant to stand the test of time. Beyond my no-waste digital image delivery, my eco-art also includes custom designed wedding albums, canvas enlargements, coffee table books, and stunning recycled aluminum metal prints. These wonderful pieces of art come from a carefully selected group of labs who are eco-innovators in the photographic industry. These labs have developed one-of-a-kind products using recycled, renewable, or FSC certified materials. These products range from Vegan wedding albums to amazing Bamboo photo mounts.
Not only is my art eco-friendly but my business practices and personal life follow suit as well. Everything I use from office supplies, to food, to cleaning products, are chosen with our planet and well being in mind. I’m a big believer in the wise wisdom of Gandhi who once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I model my business, art, and life around that wonderful idea.
From a technical standpoint, I have a passion for learning and continually improving my skills. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI). I attend conferences, seminars, and classes as much as possible. I am currently on the path to become a certified master photographer. I also use state-of-the-art photography equipment to compliment my knowledge base, and creative eye.
In the end, I’d love to be there to capture those special people and special times in your life…and to connect and share a few laughs. Almost nothing would make me happier than working with other like-minded folks…well, except those two sweet boys I mentioned earlier.
