Austin-based professional freelance photographer specializing in music and event photography, photojournalism and creative portraiture seeking new, exciting assignments and opportunities.
I'm a self-taught, published photographer with over 20 years experience shooting analog and digital portraiture, events and music, and documentary and environmental photography with interests in conceptual, experimental, and fine art photography, traditional and alternative process techniques, color theory, and digital design.
Specialized in covering local music, concerts, festivals, and events including SXSW, ACL Festival, Austin Film Festival, ATX Television Festival, MTVu Woodie Awards, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Austin Urban Music Festival, Austin Reggae Fest, Psych Fest, Maverick Music Festival, and Old Settler's Music Festival.
I'm a current member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), and a contributing photographer to Getty/WireImage. My work has been published digitally and in print in the Austin American Statesman and XL Entertainment weekly (currently Austin360 weekly), Austin360.com, Austin Music+Entertainment, Austin Monthly, Boston Globe, NY Daily News, Al Jazeera America, E! Online, PopSugar, TV Guide, and People Magazine.
I've established successful professional working relationships with some of the top Marketing, Public Relations, and Event Productions firms and entertainment venues in and outside of Austin, including the Austin Film Festival, SXSW, Emmis Communications (KLBJ Flashback Prom) and Viacom. I am also a proud supporter of HAAM, Project Transitions, Austin Free-Net, SafePlace, local music and the arts.
When I'm not in the photo pit I can be found rediscovering the Austin scene with my camera, good friends, and my righteous and veracious English Bulldogs, Fat Boy and Peabody.
