Commercial Photograher

Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, I began my early career in the graphic/visual design industry working with local agencies and clients like Yahoo!, UPS, PepsiCo, MasterCard and AT&T. After a decade of design, I made the move into Commercial Product Photography and haven't looked back. With my new found love, I have had the great pleasure of working with wonderful new clients like EndoChoice, Anisa International & Bhindi Jewelers among many others.

I specialize in commercial product photography and have been teaching studio photography for the past few years over at a very popular studio photography school.
