My bread and butter when it comes to photography has always been shooting wildlife. I have a wide and varied catalogue that ranges from night sky imagery to macro wildlife shots, predominantly consisting of the inhabitants & landscapes of Florida. I'd love to meet with you and go through the archives so we can get the perfect image on the perfect medium. For some samples of my work and pricing for canvas prints, check out the Wildlife Photography section.
Anyone can snap a picture of a face, but can you get that face to tell you a story in just one moment? Can you capture more than just physically identifying features? Portraiture is one of the most challenging mediums in the world of photography - and a challenge that I am enamored by. I offer a wide range of services in this field including (but never limited to) street, engagement, family, bands, and literally anything else you could want from a portrait session (check out some more samples & pricing in Portrait Sessions). Sessions start at $165 - Contact Us to schedule your next shoot!
Timeless black & white wedding photography is (in my totally biased opinion) one of the most under-utilized specialties in the photographic world right now.

For other events/parties/corporate gatherings/etc., please check out the Event Photography page for pricing and services.

The animal life in front of my camera doesn't always have to wild - I absolutely love working with your fur children. Or scaled children, for that matter. And while sometimes they can in fact be harder to get a clear picture of than their wild counterparts, few things are more heartwarming than seeing your very own Juan Cat-stro or Benicio Del Perro framed on the wall. Check out our Pet Sessions to see what we offer!
It's the single most frustrating medium in photography, and I still do it. I might cuss as much during the shoot as your head chef cusses during dinner rush on Friday night, but I will happily get the job done. Fun Fact! You get a better rate if I get to eat the food after I photograph it. Click here for prices & packages.

As a multi-instrumentalist and with plenty of head hunters on call, I can be a one-stop-shop resource for many musical necessities, particularly when it comes to scores, soundtracks, or other such backing needs. When it comes to live performances and fill-in work, I'm primarily a guitarist and bassist. I have a quick ear and professional sensibilities rooted in blues and expanding into a range of alternative, rock 'n roll, punk, Americana, and the like. Insert shameless plug for my own band, The Dags, here.
Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, to a family brimming with creativity, it's of little surprise that I've struggled to narrow down what to do with myself over the years. So, I haven't (for the most part). Although, I will admit that professionally speaking, I have landed in the realm of photography. I still remain active as a musician, still pick up a paintbrush every so often, am perpetually a writer, and have managed to throw all my loves into one giant cauldron called cinematography.
While photography has been perhaps my longests standing interest outside of writing, it wasn't until I was about nineteen that I really started digging into it - and finding out just how goddamn expensive it was. Seeing as I'd spent plenty of my brief time on this planet being broke, I got resourceful super quick. After a while, I remembered that my grandfather had an old 1960s Pentax in beautiful condition, with two amazing lenses - and I had the internet. Before long, I bought an adapter to put them on a modern-era Canon DSLR, and my life got a whole lot easier. Auto-focus and I never got along anyway, so this new system was perfect - and affordable. I have since upgraded my bag and come full-circle with a top-notch Pentax DSLR and a plethora of vintage glass to go with it. While I tend to gravitate towards black & white, I am no stranger to colorful shots and my general style is lower-key & high contrast. Each shot is brought into focus with careful thought and precision, with results often yielding beautifully vintage atmospheres with modern sharpness and detail.
I love working with new people and treat every client as I would a friend. My pricing is fair, my terms are straightforward, and consultations are always free - no matter what. An essential part of capturing beautiful imagery is comfort - and that goes for both sides of the lens. So, if that means our consultation is over a beer or at breakfast at a cozy diner, I'm all for it. It's so often overlooked just how much cooperation and comfort mean to having a great outcome from a session.
