My background is in Fine Arts, and that's what I bring stylistically to the table when it comes to photography. I studied painting at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI, graduating with a Fine Arts degree in 2007. From there I went on to apply myself to other ways of making images; namely filmmaking and photography. It's truly a joy to get to do what I do every day, because in the end it's about people. The people I photograph matter greatly to me. It's those real friendships that are formed that really drive beautiful and natural images and make the entire process a great experience for everyone involved.
