About

Self-Portrait
Self-Portrait

As an artist specializing in fine art and wedding photography creating compelling imagery is my ultimate passion. In 2010 I received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design after studying at the Savannah, Georgia and Lacoste, France campuses. In that same year I published Imprint, my first book of photographs, and continue to grow my list of awards and exhibitions. In 2014, I founded Prince Gallery for emerging art. In 2015, I became the Art Director for the Petaluma O Positive festival. I find infinite support and love in my wife Cara, son Archie, and our two dogs in our humble Buena Vista, Colorado home. Going forward I hope to have a fruitful career as an artist, thinker, and visual translator of any glimmer of beauty I am fortunate enough to capture.

To view my award winning wedding photography please visit Winter Tree Studios.
