got style? me too! let's collaborate. ;-)

Oh, hai! Thanks for visiting my website! I'm sure you're expecting a bit of humble bragging, but don't worry: I'm just going to avoid that altogether unless you really want to read the about me on my website which I made out of obligation more than anything else. I prefer to lurk in the shadows....I mean...behind the scenes. 

My primary focus, aside from fine art, is photographing people and the things that matter to them.

FINE ART COLLABORATIONS 



here to learn?

So maybe you're here because you simply enjoy viewing my work. And I love that! I am a firm believer that photography is something that should be enjoyed by everyone! People should also have the ability to grow their talent regardless of the equipment they shoot with - film cameras, DSLRs, phones, shoeboxes, you decide - you deserve to enjoy photography, and you should be able to learn the basics without an expensive degree. That's why I have developed a series of free photography lessons and challenges for beginning photographers!

ready to take your photography to the next level?


fine art projects

Interested in my fine art work? I have worked on three separate projects, so far, and I have two more coming soon. At the moment, Visio Sonis is complete.

ABOUT VISIO SONIS

Visio sonis is Latin in its origin and essentially means "the vision sounds" or "visual sounds." The project was named this, because each collection of photographs represents the lyrics to different songs that I have enjoyed over the years. While photography is my go-to form of art, I am also an avid singer and there is seldom a time in which I do not have my headphones going or music playing somewhere in the background. These three particular songs have special meaning to me, and others from around the world. Enjoy!

obscurities

ABOUT OBSCURITIES

A collection of the weird and the occult with inspiration from my own personal experiences in life including deeper issues of abandonment, loss,  neglect, trauma and more importantly: survival. In this set you will see a recurring theme of shadowy figures, the devil, aliens, fairies and other entities of the supernatural world. This set is expected to be fully released by the end of 2018.

FILMS WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY MICHAEL HYON JOHNSON

During my time as a photographer, I have been privileged enough to work with individuals in the film industry. Among my favorites thus far has been Michael Hyon Johnson, whom I have filmed competitively with for the 48 Hour Film Race and the 24 Hour Film Race.

During that time I became actively involved with Bad Pixel Productions, a Denver, CO collective of filmmakers, actors and others with a knack for videography.

You can check out more of his work on his website:

I have so far contributed to a total of 4 films in film races and I am excited to get back into it for 2019!
