I am an award-winning photographer based out of Athens, GA with a range of clients from all over the state and beyond. I have 20 years of experience and can meet virtually any imaging need you have. My work has been licensed by a variety of organizations and I have been hired to craft professional video for advertising and storytelling. I have recently begun offering workshops, and I have several other exciting things in store for 2020. I pride myself in creating beautiful, unique art that can be hung on your wall at home or at your business. I strive to capture a subject in a very unique way that goes far beyond simply taking a photograph.
My primary specialization is fine-art photography, and that influence can be felt in all of the work that I produce, no matter the reason. Over the past several decades, I have developed an expertise that combines in-camera and post-processing techniques to create beautiful, memorable images. My work has been featured in a variety of publications, both digital and print, as well as juried exhibitions. I love to focus on commissioned work which allows me to create an image that is customized for the client. In addition to fine art, I also work in video production, real estate, wedding, and commercial photography.
Professional quality equipment is used for all media production. I have years of experience with aerial photography, and have produced images and video for a variety of clients including Hollywood production companies. I have a Mavic Pro 2 drone capable of 24 MP images (shot in RAW format) as well as 4K video. My traditional camera is a Sony A7Riii with a variety of professional lenses, flashes, filters, and editing software that all ensure the highest quality imaging for my clients.
With thousands of dollars invested in my equipment, I have everything needed to photograph practically every event imaginable. Weddings to parties to corporate events, I can give you a competitive quote and then back it up with the confidence I have gained from photographing almost everything imaginable. I offer a range of packages that are custom-tailored to the needs of each individual, including digital files, prints, books, and other media. I offer clients the opportunity to download the high-resolution files from the shoot right here on my website, easing access and providing a layer of privacy to ensure these memories are only shared with those who should see them.
I also do videography, and here is an example of a wedding video I filmed a few years ago:
Formerly known as UpAboveGeorgia (it was honestly hard to change the name, as I have had many strangers come up to me and talk about my Instagram), I have a very strong background in aerial photography that has led to many exciting projects over the years. With my FAA certification, I can photograph anything and everything from the air, and the difference I provide is that my photographs jump off the screen or the page due to my expertise in framing, composition, aerial techniques, and post-processing using Lightroom and Photoshop. My photos can be used for print, web, television, and beyond, as they are extremely high-quality.
I have never really thought of myself as an influencer, but once I passed 10,000 followers on Instagram I started gaining more exposure as well as opportunities. This past May I did something totally new, and it was a lot of fun. I traveled to Macon to spend an entire day photographing the city, a few festivals that were going on, while also updating my Instagram account (as well as theirs) to bring attention to the great things happening in their city. The result: increased exposure for their city and their festival, along with 30-40 high quality professional photos that I provided to them to use for print, media, and other mediums. I think this creates an interesting marketing possibility for a lot of cities, non-profits, and even businesses. For one flat fee you get lots of exposure as well as quite a few professional photos to use for years and years (including aerial shots). If this sounds intriguing to you, then get in touch with me to see if I can meet your needs.
I am a photographer in Athens, GA, and I have worked with a wide variety of clients over the past several years, spanning businesses and major state organizations. I have also produced commissioned work for individuals in a variety of locations.
