Surprisingly, my elementary school had a darkroom. My mind was blown during a 6th grade pinhole camera unit. I wish I still had those photos!

Seems like I always had a camera of some sort growing up. Eventually a 35mm. I always loved doing portraits of friends and family and creative details.

At some point I became a co-owner of Mother Fool's Coffeehouse and Uvulittle Records and have shot thousands of photos for both businesses. I just really love the process - figuring out shots from an artistic and technical standpoint is really exhilarating. Those magic moments when a perfect picture emerges!

But I never really thought about becoming a photographer until sometime in 2013. The previous fall, Kim Fox, a musician friend from the early days of Mother Fool's visited Madison. Since the last time I had seen her she had become a wedding photographer (http://kimfoxphotography.com) and she had a job in Middleton. She encouraged me to get serious about photography. Towards this she gave me a Nikon D300 and signed me up for Digital 101 at UW Minicourses. And lots of advice!

Having a nice camera really re-invigorated my excitement about photography and I'm enjoying the process of turning that excitement into a new career. I've since upgraded to an even better camera and am building a nice collection of lenses.

I'm most excited about:
- publicity photos for musician, actors, dancers, etc.
- family photos
- website content / yoga / etc
- events
- maternity / newborns
- LinkedIn / Match.com / OkCupid / etc / profile pictures
- really, just about anything - I love a challenge!
