Humans and dogs have an incredible history of love and devotion, and I am fascinated by watching that history develop in our modern world. The simplest moment of watching a soggy tennis ball dropped perfectly at one’s feet sums up a contemporary definition of ‘love’ that I just can’t get enough of. Being able to articulate that unspoken bond through my photography is not only inspiring- it is a wonderful responsibility.
My studio is dedicated to creating images you will cherish for years, and that means doing everything the old fashioned way. With film, and by hand from start to finish. I print my photographs to archival standards so that future generations can enjoy the work you have commissioned for years and years to come. This is an investment in love, devotion, and joy.
I have an unwavering commitment to preserving and nurturing the culture of photography. I find analog photography to be the purest form, as it requires me to remain vigilantly attentive at each stage of the creative process. There are no short cuts when working with a Hasselblad or focusing an enlarger. From the choice of aperture in the field, to the chemistry in the darkroom, to museum quality acid-free matting and frame assemblage. When I deliver a perfectly curated series of black and white dog photography to my clients they are receiving the product of my intention, my artistic impulses, and extreme care.
See you at the studio,
