I am so lucky to be able to do what I love.
Photography has always been a passion of mine. Throughout my travels, I feel in love with the colorful flavors that one can capture through the lens of a camera. I now use my skills and love of nature to bring out the best in my subjects. One of my greatest talents is working with natural light. I have a very organic, semi-photojournalistic style of shooting. I prefer to have big lenses so that I don't have to be an "in your face" type of photographer. I Love making people laugh and feel that my relaxed and professional style allows my clients to be calm and satisfied all day, which brings out the best in their images. I am also very involved in doing work for local businesses. It brings me great joy to be able to help small businesses create better websites and marketing tools. We all want to see this Northern California economy thrive. Throughout the years I have increased my skills in the adobe realm, as well as working on various illustration projects and logos.
My goal is to travel the world through my work, while keeping my local community stocked with images that last a lifetime.
I put a lot of time and love into my work and my relationships with my clients. I have very high expectations of myself, and am always working to raise the bar, with my images and my way of doing business.
About a year ago I moved my business into the Neighborhood surf shop in downtown Arcata. It is an awesome place, and an artist alliance, housing some talented folks like Matt Beard, and Marnie Nave! So come check our place out if you're in town.
