Professional Freelance Photographer
Austin-based professional freelance photographer specializing in music and event photography, photojournalism and creative portraiture.
Self-taught photographer with over 20 years experience shooting analog and digital portraiture, events and music, and documentary and environmental photography with interests in conceptual, experimental, and fine art photography and the study of traditional and alternative process techniques, color theory, and digital design.
I am a published photographer primarily covering local music, concerts, festivals, events and special interest stories for the Austin American Statesman and Austin360.com (Cox Communications) for over 7 years. Assignments include SXSW, ACL, Austin Film Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Free Week, Austin Urban Music Festival, WOBEON Festival, Reggae Fest, Psych Fest, and Old Settler's Music Festival.
I'm a current a member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), and a contributing photographer to Getty/WireImage. My work has been published digitally and in print in the Austin American Statesman and XL Entertainment weekly (currently Austin360 weekly), Austin360.com, The Edge magazine, Austin Music + Entertainment, Austinist, and Crossroads Music Magazine.
I've established professional working relationships with some of the top Marketing, Public Relations, and Event Productions firms and entertainment venues in and outside of Austin, including the Austin Film Festival, SXSW, Emmis Communications (KLBJ Flashback Prom) and Viacom. I am also a proud supporter of HAAM, Project Transitions, Austin Free-Net, SafePlace, local music and the arts.
When I'm not in the photo pit I can be found rediscovering the Austin scene with my camera, good friends, and my righteous and veracious English Bulldog, Fat Boy.
