Fashion | Last Updated: March 30, 2023

Hello! I’m a fashion photographer based in Los Angeles. I have been doing photography for 11 years, but 3 years ago really got into fashion photography and left my job to pursue photography full time.

I love working with color in my shots and since moving to LA I am all about incorporating all the pastels I see in the city into my work. My hope is to help change the fashion industry for the better. I love working with women of different shapes and ethnicities and brands who make environmentally friendly pieces and treat their workers fairly.

I also help brands with their marketing and social media content. I love creating cohesive, interesting Instagram and website pages for clients to help them build a dedicated client base.

When it comes to gear I have a pretty minimal set up, since I tend to mostly shoot outdoors and don’t want to carry to much gear.

I’m a Canon user all the way, but that’s only because when I was in high school my dad gave me a Canon camera and that’s where I’ve stayed. I shoot with a 5D Mark III, which is my baby. I love the color quality that comes from it.

I use my 24-105mm f/4.0 lens the most lately. It helps me get a bunch of different angles and crops. I also have a 50mm f/1.8 which I was using all the time, but I switched back to my 24-105mm a few months ago. I tend to go back and forth between the two every few months. The 50mm is great for low light situations, but sometimes doesn’t get wide enough for me.

To carry my gear, I have my Peak Design backpack which I love. It’s so well thought out and can pretty much carry anything I need for whatever shoot and looks great doing it! I also have a Peak Design neck strap.

I love to shoot film, so when I have the budget for it I bring along my Pentax 35mm camera that was my dad’s. I use SanDisk cards with 32gb or 64gb and as for storage I use my LaCie 2TB rugged thunderbolt hard drive, which is nice and fast!
