I'm a photographer based in Los Angeles, California who specializes in photographing architecture; I also have a mild airplane obsession.
I grew up in Ipswich, Massachusetts: a small coastal town that's one part postcard and one part overly dramatic Boston movie. Here I was lucky enough to meet a number of amazing teachers who opened my eyes to the world of art and design; this would alter the path of my life in more ways than I could ever imagine.
After studying studio art and environmental science at the University of Vermont, I moved to Lake Tahoe, California, in hopes of becoming a professional snowboarder (graduating during the most tense moments after the '08 recession made this sound like a great idea). A couple of years and countless injuries later, I found myself taking up an offer to photograph a few homes for a client I'd met while recuperating. What started by chance turned out to be the perfect mix of technical challenge and creative outlet, and I was immediately hooked with photographing architecture. I decided right there and then that it absolutely must be my career.
Over the years I've been able to blend my interests in architecture and infrastructure together while working on some incredible projects: from hanging out of helicopters over Miami Beach to photographing homes in the wilds of Iceland, it's been one heck of a ride.
In 2018, I founded the Architectural Photography Almanac, a resource for architecture photographers and those in the architecture industry seeking to learn about the craft and theory of architectural photography.
