Born and raised in Metro Detroit (Northville, MI to be exact).  I moved to Orlando, Florida in the early 2000’s but came back to Michigan to finish college after about 4 years in the sunshine state.  I graduated from Wayne State University located in the heart of Detroit, MI where I earned my BFA focused in Photography and have been freelancing since 2005.

In 2012 I began shooting for USA TODAY Sports Images. My first gig was an NFL assignment, Eagles at Browns. It was amazing! I spent a full decade covering events in my region of the country.  Some of my past assignments other than the NFL include NBA, MLB, NHL, PGA, LPGA, NASCAR, IndyCar, MMA, Wrestling, AAU Junior Olympics, various NCAA events and professional eGaming events. I’ve shot over 500 events for USA TODAY Sports and gained priceless experience.

In 2022, I started shooting for Getty Images which was a goal and dream of mine since before college.  I’m honored and humbled to be part of this world renown network of photographers, artists, content creators and editors. Currently, I specialize in professional golf coverage for Getty, which includes the PGA Tour, PGA Tour Champions, Korn Ferry Tour & LPGA.  I enjoy traveling around the country to capture the worlds elite golfers.  Covering golf offers unique photo possibilities which you can’t find in many other sports.  Did I mention I love golf as well!

In addition to golf, I spend a large amount of my time shooting weddings, portraits, branding, commercial, corporate and various other special events.  I treat all my assignments with the utmost importance.  Whether it’s the final round of a major championship or a casual portrait session around town, the goal is always the same, to create unique, timeless and beautiful images.

I’d love to work with you!  Please contact me and we can start planning your shoot.
