I'm a Minneapolis based dog and lifestyle photographer. I shoot in studio and on location. I strive to make honest images tell a story. I'm also part of the husband and wife photography team Cadence and Eli. Our work can be seen at Holler at me and we'll make some art.

I shoot birds a lot. I'm not a birder mind you, its mostly pigeons and crows. I think they add life to scenes that are otherwise lacking it. Here's one from my travels in France earlier this year. My father and I went on a self guided eating and architectural tour. This was taken in an over-developed but breathtakingly beautiful town called St. Paul de Vence on the Cote d'Azur. I’d never traveled in a car before. It was great to be able to experience small towns that trains and busses have a harder time getting to.

West Coast Collective

Published November 10th, 2011

I've just looked at my photos from a couple of months ago when Cadence and I attended the West Coast Collective. Cadence was speaking on Boudoir. I came along to see another photographer that I really look up to, John Michael Cooper. You can (and should in my opinion) see his work here: Listening to John was a pleasure. I definitely suggest it if you ever have the opportunity.

The conference was held on Vancouver Island in the town of Sidney. That place is beautiful! I can’t wait until my next chance to go back.

Thanks to Jesse Bone and Lance Sullivan for having us out there. BC is a dream boat.

Speaking of boats. You have to take one to get there. I took that opportunity to make some photos of strangers sleeping. ☺ Enjoy.

Igor is a Boston Terrier. He’s also a madman who likes to be chased, then hides between legs and under very patriotic folding chairs. Jean-Luc meanwhile chases after Igor apparently trying to slobber him into submission. Ah, the life of a dog.

By the way, did you see those eyes?! Awesome.

Dawn at the Acropolis

Published November 8th, 2011

I asked Cadence to go to Greece with me on something like our fifth date. It didn't seem like too much of a stretch since I was pretty sure I wanted to marry her by then anyway. :) This shot was taken on a hill near the Acropolis at dawn. My favorite thing about jet lag is that it makes it so easy to get out and shoot at hours that I'm normally sleeping. (I'm a good sleeper.) It was accompanied by some Greek kids playing guitar and drinking the nights last beer.
