Los Angeles & New York


BIO

I'm a Los Angeles based photographer specializing in architecture, interiors and design. When I'm not shooting beautiful spaces I am probably traveling, planning a trip, or day dreaming about planning a trip. I'm a sucker for great design, I spend 98% of my income on food, and I occasionally fantasize about living off-the-grid.

Originally from New York, I graduated from Fordham University in 2008. I then spent eight years traveling, living abroad and shooting a ton of photos, before settling in Los Angeles with my wife and son.

PHOTOGRAPHY PHILOSOPHY

For as long as I can remember, I was always interested in the spaces we occupy and the infinite ways we make them our own, adapt them to our environment, and customize them to our ever-changing needs and creative whims. In middle school, rather than playing video games, my computer time was spent creating detailed floor plans, complete with furniture layouts and outdoor landscaping (a little nerdy, I know). In college, I was torn between studying architecture, interior design or film. I landed on film, but after graduation I quickly transitioned into photography, where my career and passion has remained for 14 years. 

Early in my career I fell into shooting homes and architecture, and quickly realized this was where I was meant to be. My interest in architecture and interior design could be seamlessly combined with photography, and I loved that I could inhabit all worlds simultaneously. I love the challenge of interpreting and understanding the flow of the space, the purpose of each room and design feature, and the way the light changes and interacts with the space. Great photography doesn’t just capture what a space looks like, but what a space feels like and that has always been my goal. My 10+ years of experience, skills, and genuine love for great design enables me to do so.

I'm keenly aware of the power photography has to share an architect’s, artist’s, designer’s and builder’s vision with the world. Most buildings, especially private residences, will be experienced by such a small number of people, and the rest of the world is left to know it only through photography. It is a challenge and a privilege that keeps me enthralled every step of the way, and continually yearning for opportunities to see and shoot more.
