Growing up in a small southern town, the Marine Corps became my ticket to see the world. My call sign was “The Photographer” as I documented everything; cultural sites and heads of state to local people in remote villages. I was constantly learning, absorbing, and inspired by the beauty of life and captured every detail. As a photographer, I am constantly collecting memories, visual references and experiences that fuel my concepts and ideas. From large scale productions to streamlined minimalist studio portraits, I love the complexity of a big idea and the refinement of simple elegance. It is my job to tell a story that evokes desire, that compels emotion and reveals the beautiful diversity of life.
- Be Bold.In this industry, you have to be bold to be noticed. You have to take risks and shoot your shot to even get your foot in the door. But what does "being bold" even mean? For me, being bold is being authentic. As an artist, it's so important to me that my work reflects who I am and all the different sides of me. Not only do I want my work to be professional but I also want to be passionate. So here's to always trying to be authentically bold, even when it's not always easy. Image: Shot by Cedr
