I began taking photos my first year of High School, and I haven't stopped since! I was trained in several forms of Commercial Photography at the Brooks Institute of Photography, located in Santa Barbara, CA. I have worked in both studio and outdoor environments with all formats of cameras (35mm: Canon, Nikon & Leica / Medium Format: Mamiya, Hasselblad & Bronica / Large Format: Horseman & Sinar). I have extensive hardware and software knowledge on the Apple platform. My workflow typically consists of RAW image capture into Lightroom (or Aperture), and post production in Adobe Photoshop CS5. Lastly, I love all forms of photography, just having a camera in my hands inspires me to create art, and document the world around me.
