about

Oakland Portrait and headshot photography. I’m about:


relationships | integrity | hospitality | brilliance | positive thinking | raw-ness | realness | taking risks | doing the work | leading by example | dad jokes | rule #6 | keepin’ it classy (for the most part) | connection | loyalty | crying laughing | doing the hard part first | embracing emotional labor | generosity | connection

I chose this shot because its a new visual style I am working on and I think it’s RAD!

As a photographer, I’ve learned through experience that great pictures aren’t based on a great technique alone. It’s based on the connection I have with my client. It’s how they feel while they are at the photo shoot. I make people feel at home. That’s how great portraits happen. 

At the end of the day, I’m about human connection. My real job is hospitality, no matter what my job title is at the time. And I build connections by engaging with people and experiences.
