Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. I am a professional landscape and nature photographer specializing in limited edition fine art prints. My photography has been recognized by several publications, including Photograph of the Year by the Los Angeles Times. I have also sold numerous fine art prints; my clientele include the prestigious real estate companies Hilton & Hyland and The Agency.
I enjoy building a relationship with my clientele and helping them choose artwork that resonates with them. Selecting the right piece of artwork for your home or office that personifies your taste and merging this with a room's layout can be a difficult process. I can ease this process by creating a visual mock-up of your chosen artwork displayed in its anticipated room or office.

I began my photography journey when I moved to Los Angeles in 2009. I lived near the beach, and I had the desire to take a sunset photograph to hang on my wall. I borrowed my co-worker’s Nikon D40 DSLR, the base level model, and instantly fell in love with photography's combination of technology and art. My love of photography has led me to places I would have never traveled and introduced me to incredible friends. I love the peace and quiet nature brings, away from the hustle and commotion of city life. When I'm outdoors, I feel connected to my surroundings and it inspires an energy and excitement that lives in my work.
The photo below was one of my first sunset photos. It’s over-processed and not the best lighting, but it was exhilarating to take and later edit in Photoshop. After taking that photo, I quickly absorbed as much photography information as I could through YouTube videos, classes, and other people’s images. I would take photos of anything and everything. I tried my hand at wedding photography, macro photography, portrait photography, and of course landscape photography. What started as a simple idea turned into a passion that continues through today.
“ Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
