My father taught me many things as a young boy. He inspired me to learn photography and instilled in me a "National Geographic" sense of adventure and travel. I went on to study photography in high school, during my Army career, and later at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I am excited to explore many genres of photography as my portfolio showcases a broad range of photography from architecture, documentary, editorial, landscape, portraiture, and still life.
My studies in architectural drafting, experience in the construction industry, and appreciation for symmetry inspire my architectural photography and serve as the catalysts that drove my Master of Fine Art thesis "Bridging Mindfulness" and "San Francisco Then And Now".
I have many projects that focus on illuminating global cultures with a strong emphasis on Asia. Having lived and worked in Asia the majority of my adult life while serving in the Army Special Forces has provided me with unique experiences that influence my documentary body of work including: "Little Muya Thai" and "Prayer Wheels".
Additionally, I have a passion for railroad photography because it embodies a nostalgic quality of travel from an era that remains largely untouched by modernity, "Neo Film Noir" if you will. This passion is captured in my train travel documentaries and landscape projects.
Being based in the Atlanta Metro Area gives me the ability to work as an artist and professional photographer. Be sure to visit my other real estate and architecture photography sites as well.
