My passion for photography stems from a love for food, travel and art

Hello and thanks for stopping by! I'm a self-taught, professional and award-winning photographer who specializes in "all things food" including recipes, brands, restaurants and travel. I'm currently based in Chicago and travel everywhere.

With an advanced eye for light and detail and a creative vision for composition, I approach each shoot with a rustic, authentic and story-telling style ranging from light and fresh to dark and dramatic. 

Keep an eye on my day-to-day projects and work by following my food photography blog, Up Close & Tasty, where I feature recipes, brands, restaurants and travel. My blog was selected as a Finalist for Best Photography in the SAVEUR Food Blog Awards for 2016. You can also see my growing community of clients here.

If you're interested in freelance photography, licensing images, creative collaborations or just want to say hello, I'd love to hear from you. 

Let's chat.
