Photographer / Director
As a Chicago commercial photographer and photojournalist, I've been telling stories through some 6,000 assignments to date, connecting with people in an authentic way in a wide variety of circumstances.
Along the way, I have the distinction of working on projects that have won the highest awards in both advertising and editorial; a Titanium Lion at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and a Pulitzer Prize. Along with several other accolades, HarperCollins describes him as "one of the world's leading photojournalists."
Whether it be stills, motion or a hybrid shoot, I've learned to be resourceful, creative and dependable no matter the circumstance or level of production. I usually run a nimble operation, as I enjoy the benefits of a small crew as we bring out intimacy and emotion with our subjects. But I enjoy working with a bigger team to achieve creative objectives and art direction on larger productions.
My philosophy: Strong communication skills, direction and positivity on set are crucial to rally others to the creative vision on a project.
