I love Photography. I am a Tech geek, Sports nut, and Art aficionado who can communicate well with pretty much anyone. I know a little bit about a lot and that easily translates into my passion for Photography. For me it all began back in 8th grade Art class with an oatmeal box pinhole camera and the dark room. When digital photography became the norm this fused two major areas into a foundation for my creative side that was more difficult to express previously. I have been shooting Events, Weddings, Portraits, Sports, Editorial, Lifestyle, Travel, and Wildlife since 2006 in the greater Seattle area.

Elena Stecca, Actress, Spring 2016

Sometimes you expose for the shade and luck out by being in the right place in the right time.

Event shooting is where my a piece of my photographic heart lives.

Indoor 'Box' Lacrosse as they call it was one of the most difficult sports I've shot, period, but so rewarding.

Father & Son: I had the esteemed honor to travel cross country in the family RV from Seattle to Mineral Point, WI.

Testing out my Sony ActionCam with some timelapse footage of me being me, early in the morning.
