Hey there!

Thanks for coming by and checking out my photos. Let me give you a little info about myself here: I was born and raised in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and it’s safe to say that the Sierra are and always will be home for me. I’m a freelance photographer, professional mountain guide, owner of Mammoth Climbing Guides and a seasonal biologist in the Mojave Desert. In my free time I teach adaptive rock climbing and alpine skiing and have been volunteering with organizations such as Paradox Sports and Disabled Sports USA for many years.

My style as a photographer mimics my time climbing big mountains; fast and light. I aim to capture real moments and experiences. There’s nothing fake or staged here. Authenticity is the core of my values as a photographer. I carry the bare minimum of equipment to create these images because my friends are fast in the mountains and I have to be just a little bit faster. All my work is true to the original image having only color corrections made to them. I do not manipulate my images or spend a lot of time in postproduction.

I am available for portrait sessions, engagement photos, weddings, commercial, editorial, events and you can find fine are prints available on my website for purchase. If you’re looking for high angle images or rigging we can cover that, too. My other business, Mammoth Climbing Guides, is fully licensed, permitted and insured. We can build the team to meet your production needs in the vertical world.

Thanks for stopping by!
