businesses should compete
based on great stories.
Pure and simple.
It's my job to draw out and photograph your stories
in a way that causes customers to click with your brand.
Nashville-based photographer and visual storyteller
with a great love of people.
My work is focused on telling better stories
for your website, social media, blog, print collateral, and in-house displays.
With a BA in Photography from Thomas Edison State College;
a thesis written on How Photography Causes Social Change;
a year teaching photography at the college level;
and an MA in theology
your images will come from a deep understanding
of the power of images and the human heart.
Born and raised in the South
with a deep appreciation for roots, narrative & quality.
I grew up watching light slant through Georgia pine trees and it changed the way I see.
Lover of hospitality, rocking chairs, deep conversations
and the word "ya'll."
My work has been hailed as unique, transparent + true:
qualities that translate to a diverse client base.
With a relaxed + professional demeanor
filled with joy and spontaneity
I provide delicately constructed images,
telling stories in the best light.
The mediums that I use are diverse; two film Hasselblads to a Leica digital camera.
I love the slowness and intentionality of photographing with film
as well as the delicate color palette that comes from the reaction of chemistry and light.
For clients, I work with a processing lab that can provide scans in double time.
Digitally speaking, I work with full format Leica cameras that bring the same weight
and intentionality to my work.
They say you can't be from Nashville and not be a musician.
I play harp, guitar, piano + mountain dulcimer and am a classically trained vocalist. I'm on iTunes, but these days I enjoy playing for fun and worshipping more than anything.
Nashville has been home for fifteen years: currently, I’m living in a pre-war apartment in city center.
However, I travel for around 75% of my commercial and editorial work. Nashville touches seven states and is home to BNA International airport, so being in motion comes naturally.
I rescued Otis in December 2017 as an 8-week old puppy from Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue.
He is a smart cookie and definitely keeps me on my toes.
Otis helps me in the office and in the field
and sometimes he likes to frame up a shot or two himself.
