I'm a Chicago based fashion and street photographer (sharing my time between Chicago, London, and LA) and am available worldwide for fashion, commercial and editorial assignments.

When I'm not photographing models, I'm out hunting...searching and prowling the streets for life's unseen moments. Real people, real emotions, and real relationships fascinate me. The photographs in my portfolio that combine the two worlds of fashion and street photography delight and inspire me the most. 

I've also worked on the other side of the camera as a model for several years. Knowing first-hand what the model is thinking and feeling is a huge advantage as a photographer, and I pride myself in creating an easy-going, upbeat on-set atmosphere.

I'm available to shoot designer lookbooks, e-commerce and catalogue assignments, model portfolios, actor and musician headshots / portraits, and any other projects that involve a camera and a lil' fun and creativity!

Road tripping + shooting through Europe / off the grid : July 5 - August 13

Copenhagen : August 14 - 19

Chicago : August 20 - ?
