This is my grandmother and her 1907 Kodak "Landcamera". We share a common passion for photography and although we never met I am very close to her. My career in photography was inspired by my actor friends in Hollywood. When I began taking head shots for my buddies (on Ilford XP2 b/w film) that inadvertently lead me down the road of portraiture and a career in advertising. Since 2001 I've been based in Austin, Texas a small town where grit and hygge, the Danish zen, commune well. Perhaps I'm the only one who thinks so. I'm inspired by people and personal style and even have a nick name around these part: the Dapper Dane. My signature is to put put people at ease in front of a camera. A shoot with me is like going to the dentist but without the pain. 

Clients include:

Additionally, you can check out my side project called The Divorce Exchange where I attempt to help and empower other divorcing parents. For a few years this "side project' took over my life as I had to navigate our family's divorce and make it work for all of us - especially our two amazing children.
