ANN Arbor, Ypsilanti, Washtenaw County and southeast michigan


I am an Ann Arbor, Michigan based photographer specializing in portraiture, live performance, event photography and architectural photography in southeast Michigan. 

 Portraiture services include Senior Portraits, Actor Headshots and Professional Portraits. The guiding philosophy that informs all of my photography is capturing moments of candidness, whether posed or spontaneous.

I have worked with many Michigan actors to craft photographs that represent their essential uniqueness and personality, while remaining true to the purpose of producing professional headshots for the working (and aspiring) actor.

This philosophy also guides my work with High School Seniors. Through meeting and communicating with prospective clients prior to their sessions I am able tell their story through images that reflect the interests and personalities of my clients.

My theatrical performance photography is conducted during live dress rehearsals, with the photographs made as the performance unfolds. I have worked with the Purple Rose Theatre Company of Chelsea, Michigan, Kickshaw Theatre, Pioneer High School Theatre Guild and Theatre Nova in Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan's Educational Theatre Company and Meadow Brook Theatre to capture the energy and spirit of live theatre.

I have also worked with UM Office of the President, UM History, IMGLive, Malibu Rum, Captain Morgan, and many other private clients to document events including weddings, gallery openings, fundraisers and hospitality dinners at diverse venues such as Michigan International Speedway, Zingerman's Greyline, UM Museum of Art, UM Ross School of Business, Rackham Auditorium, Michigan's Governor's Residence and UM President's Residence.

My architectural work has been in conjunction with Jean Gilles Design, Meadowlark Builders and Kase Studio documenting private homes and commercial spaces throughout Washtenaw, Jackson and Livingston County, Michigan.

Thanks again for stopping by, please enjoy my portfolio, and I hope to hear from you soon!
