Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy the photos you see here. I specialize in music photography, both live and promotional band photography. 

I live in Ramona, CA a small town in the foothills of San Diego county. I am able to travel around San Diego, Orange, Riverside, Imperial, and Los Angeles Counties. 

My photos have been featured in Guitar Player Magazine, Surfer Magazine, Boogie Magazine, San Diego Troubador, San Diego Reader, SD City Beat Magazine, Pacific Magazine and various other publications and websites. 

I have photographed national touring acts as well as local and up and coming acts. I have shot in venues as small as 25 seat coffee shops to baseball stadiums. 

My equipment consists of Canon 5d MKIII and Canon 7D bodies. In my bag I have a Canon 24-70 2.8, Canon 70-200 2.8 IS, a Sigma 85 1.4, a Sigma 150-600 5.0-6.3, a Canon 50 1.2, and a Sigma 10-20 3.5 lenses. 

If you have any questions about my photography or would like to hire me for a photo shoot please feel free to email me.
