Location: San Francisco, CA
Duration: 1.5 years on my own.
Size: In the studio it’s just me. On a shoot, I have the privilege of working with the most amazing people. I am always in awe of the talent in this business.
Education: I have attended universities in Rhode Island, Switzerland, New Zealand and Paris. I have a BA, but honestly most of what I have learned has been through life experiences.
Cultural Influences: Photography, painting, sculpture, architecture, performance art, theater, dance, opera, literature, music, film: there is a creative voice in everything. I am inspired by anyone who can express their ideas and what they see in a unique way. I love it when I can look at a Lillian Bassman photograph or a Matthew Barney installation and think, “How the hell did they come up with that?”
Environment: I get to shoot in the most incredible locations, but when I have to be in my office, it is four bare walls, a couple of computers and no chairs. I am more comfortable outside than in.Philosophy: Photography is my way of communicating what I see. I don't want to just capture images, I want to create images that empower and give voice to the subject, that engage and inspire the viewer.
