Photography, styling, and creative freelancing
are just a few of my favorite things.
The beauty is in the fine details.
My photography aims to capture small moments through prosaic, natural light driven photos. I'm largely inspired by the notion of finding the familiar in the foreign, by nesting wherever you go, as well as conversely finding the exotic in the everyday, of traveling even when you're at home. From cookery to coast lines, geometry to shadow, I try to capture intimacy, quiet beauty, and simple adventure.
Line, shape, color, and texture all come together to tell a story & invoke a mood, whether it be of a recipe, home, clothing line, or still life. My style is what I call "Appalachian wabi-sabi", a rustic minimalism that balances the vintage with the modern, the cluttered with the clean. I prefer to work with muted, neutral tones and natural textures like metal, wood, linen, concrete, marble, and ceramic. Synthesis of disparate aesthetics in order to produce an entirely new one is always my goal when styling, and instead of striving for the pristine, I work towards an organic, lived in look.
CREATIVE CONSULTING & FREELANCING
Whether you want to work together to tell the story of your brand & product, design a campaign, or invigorate your brand's social media presence, I can help. I work with businesses both small and large as a creative director, production designer, and consultant to curate content, style & photograph both editorial and product photo shoots, and assist with social media & digital marketing through the creation of organic campaigns that create value for both the brand and the audience.
