I am a professional music photographer from the Washington DC area, currently living in Los Angeles. I specialize in live music and candid portraits.

I have seventeen years of photography experience, fourteen of which I’ve been shooting music and live shows. My style and work is deeply rooted and influenced by my experience with film before the digital era. Many things in the world today are set-up, over-worked and planned, edited, etc…. I love how raw, real, and tangible a great concert is. Music and photography are universal languages, they connect people. In my photographs I capture the feeling and energy of each band, musician, and show in a unique and beautiful way.

I am a house photographer for IMP Productions (9:30 Club, Merriweather Post Pavilion, The Lincoln Theatre, etc) and have also recently done work for Virgin Mobile, Nicki Minaj/ Myx Fusions, 135th Street Agency, IDL Entertainment Group, Kelly Rowland/Republic Records, Gogol Bordello/ Red Light Management, Pollstar, Flying Dog Brewery, The Vinyl District, and 24-7 Entertainment.

Available for work around LA, DC and for travel. Thanks for stopping by!
