Photography has been a part of my life since I can remember. My dad was a photographer so I grew up around film and dark rooms. So it was natural that I picked up the camera from a early age. I started shooting as a way to document mountaineering and diving trips. Then slowly transitioning to commercial work after being published in a couple of magazines.

I'm continually learning from experiences both in shots and in life and try to bring this evolving perspective to my images.

I split my time between photography, family and firefighting.

Lately I've been working a lot with cinemagraphs

and I encourage you to check them out.
