Hello, I am a freelance photographer based out of Duluth, MN. I spent the first four years of my professional career working in the newspaper industry. I started while in college at the University of Minnesota with the Minnesota Daily and moved on to the Red Wing Republican Eagle newspaper in Forum Communications family of papers.

Working in a newspaper environment calls for a broad set of skills which has required me to refine my technique and master the technical side of photography. This has come in handy when photographing weddings, engagement portraits, senior portraits, and various events. Studio and advertising photography are also realms in which I have done extensive work and feel very comfortable. Freelance clients include: Red Bull, ESPN, United Way, Hilton Hotels, Bacardi, Enbridge Energy, University of Minnesota, Uptown Arts Association, Sheldon Bras Band, A.P. Anderson Center, J. Stoia Portrait Design, Bella Vita Studios.

Check out samples I have provided in my album. Hopefully we can find a fit with your photographic needs and the skills I can provide. Have a great day!
