Before we eat that….

I am a visual problem solver. My goal is to create and image that you want to eat, a place you want to be, evoke emotion, and tell a story. It is creating a world by bringing together lighting, textures, and composition.

I will share images that I shoot for myself. How simple is beautiful, how these images inspire my commercial work and how they are a practice in seeing and observing.
