Architectural photography is not about capturing what a space looks like, it's about capturing what a space feels like. 

I have had the great opportunity to combine a career in Architecture with my passion for photographing incredible spaces. Understanding what an architect or an interior designer envisions for the project is key to producing the best compositions. As a designer first and a photographer second, I know what it takes to see a project through from start to finish. Perspective, patience, creativity, perseverance, and time, a lot of time... The final images of your project should be just as valuable, and just as rewarding as the finished project itself. 

Graduating with a B.Arch from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, I began my career working for some of the largest firms in the world, HOK in San Francisco and Gensler in San Jose. The competition was fierce, and I had to hone my skills quickly to keep up. I am happy to say that I currently get to apply my bag of tricks and continue learning everyday at a great firm in my hometown of Santa Cruz. 

Let's get right down to it- professional imagery of your work is what you take away from every project, they are your greatest tools to showcase what you do best. I expect perfection in each and every photo I produce and am honored to capture your next creation.

From residential to commercial, our goal is to photograph the depth and detail of each project.

As a trained interior designer, I have spent years studying space and architecture. I believe that the principles of design can be applied to any creative endeavor. I have always been interested in photography, and the camera lens provides a unique challenge in creating a beautiful composition. My background allows me to arrange interior spaces to better suit the camera's eye, while still maintaining the designer's intent. 

Above and beyond composing, I also assist with session lighting, management, and preliminary scouting for all new projects.
