A little bit more about me, Raff. . .
"When you buy something from an artist, you're buying more than an object. You're buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You're buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You're not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul. A small piece of someone else's life." -Unknown
I’ve been fascinated with photography for the majority of my life, since first picking up a camera at the age of 7. As with any artist on a creative journey, my style, technique, tools, and subjects have changed and evolved countless times over the years. One thing that has not changed is my commitment to perfection when it comes to balance and harmony in my compositions. Through the hundreds of thousands of shutter clicks, it's undeniable that this is the lens through which I view absolutely everything in life. My images are designed to invoke a sense of calm and peace, no matter the subject.
In 2018 I first experienced the unfettered joy photographing with a drone. As a landscape photographer it felt as though someone just handed me a 400’ tripod. Like a bird being let out of its cage for the first time, I was free to fly and explore the world around me in a way I had only dreamed of!

I immediately knew in my soul that I needed to make aerial photography my focus. In early 2019 I became a federally licensed unmanned aircraft pilot. Since then I've spent countless hours in the sky on a quest to create unique and captivating photographs.
These aerial adventures are my own, but I feel compelled to share them with the world through my art. I hope you will find joy in my art and I invite you to join me in this journey by following me on social media and by supporting me by purchasing my fine art and merchandise.
