I’m sometimes thought of as a photographer whose work falls between documentary photography and art. To me, there’s not much of a difference. Everything I do needs to be executed artfully and it also needs to tell a story. It’s all part of being a professional photographer and filmmaker, one that roams the digital landscape and whose main focus is to communicate. Whatever we film or photograph needs to tell a story that engages the audience. It needs to have serious style & bold vision. That’s what I’m here to do, to find something that works for my clients and engages their market.
I’ve tried these ways in the depths of Icelandic isolation, inside the broken-down remnants of an industrial era icon that once processed coal and while filming a performance in the remote forests in the Pennsylvania Wilds or a documentary short film about coal mine fires. Though everyday work isn’t always that dramatic, there’s always a challenge when creating for clients and when sharing new images on social platforms. It may be during a corporate meeting, a portfolio session for professional talent, or shooting still life in the studio. And that challenge is what keeps our tank full as we speed across that digital landscape.
