The elephant tattooed guy in the room.


First things first... I spent years in a suit and tie; it didn't suit me. I am creative, I am unique. That's what you're hiring me for. I live and breathe purpose and creativity.


I am worth having at your classiest event because of what I provide for you. I do always try to dress appropriately. For more upscale events, I'm usually in black pants and a black button up shirt. For more casual shoots, I dress comfortable and casual.

*If you have specific dress requirements, I am usually happy to accommodate the best I can. I do need flexibility and comfort so I can move around and get great shots!

Hey,

I'm Jeff.


I grew up with camera in hand... My Mother, Grandmother and Aunt were all photographers and I still remember how enthralled I was with photos and camera gear. I loved spending time looking at my mother's prints, photography books and going to art galleries as a child. Photography just spoke to me.


I took my first "award-winning photo" the age of 7 and was always encouraged to do photography. I love that I can capture the world the way I see it. I studied photography & videography in high school and spent hours on end in my grandmother's & school's dark room. I still remember the smell!


My first camera was a Canon AE1 and I used it until digital cameras came out. Today I use the Canon EOS R5 and EOS RP as a backup.


I never stopped taking photos, but my passion for photography went away 17 years ago, when it was absorbed by addiction and alcoholism. Today I'm 14 years clean & sober and not a day goes by that I'm not taking or editing photos or videos. I embrace every day like it's my last... My time is worth everything to me and when I'm photographing with you it is my most important moment.


I spent almost 30 years in web design and marketing and had the privilege of working with models & photographers all over the world.


The past 5 years has been dedicated to experiential education & online classes. I've studied everything from music theory, mixing and mastering, film and video production, film editing, photography and editing. I spend about 1,800 hours per year learning, practicing and pushing myself to improve. For reference, I've been using Adobe photoshop since version 3.0!


My passion outside of photography is music & working with others who struggle with mental health challenges, addiction, homelessness and other life situations.


Today my life is happy and purposeful... My journey continues.
