I specialize in studio and environmental portraiture, reaching beyond the standard headshot or portrait through a personalized creative process of lighting, pose, expression and environment. In my private studio overlooking downtown Minneapolis you'll find a safe, welcoming creative space with professional lighting and backdrops. It is an environment designed for personal exploration, artistic collaboration, play and discovery! I also provide advanced retouching and compositing skills so you know you'll look your best!
The studio is located in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Corridor, in the historic Casket Arts Building, home to over 100 artists, craftspeople and jewelers.
Before your session, we will chat in person, by phone or email about your goals for the shoot. We will then put together an Idea/Mood Board that will help guide the direction of the session including location, lighting, poses, wardrobe and hair/makeup.
In addition to portraiture I pursue a handful of personal artistic projects related to travel, street photography and street portraiture, as well as natural and urban subjects, which are represented here in the "Personal Projects" portfolio. Feel free to browse through the directories, stay as long as you'd like, surf out to my Instagram and Facebook links- and then follow up with me on the Contact Info page if you have any questions or would like more information or to schedule a session. I look forward to hearing from you!
