Do you have work for sale?

For professional work with clients, I mainly use digital. This allows me faster turnaround time for delivery of the photographs. In my personal use, I mainly use medium format 120 film as well as 35mm film.
How would you describe your style?.
My style varies from portrait photography to fine art/conceptual. This allows me to create imagery that encompasses anything my imagination can think.
Who would you say have been influences on your work?
Some of the photographers who have and continue to inspire me are Ansel Adams, Joel Robinson, Joey L and Dean Bradshaw.
Are there particular themes you like to explore in your work?
Currently I am working on a project that consists of abandoned structures located in North Dakota. Other themes that I enjoy working with are conceptual composites which make the impossible come to life.
What do you most enjoy about the creative process?
Allowing myself to visualize an idea, breaking down each part and figuring out how to encompass all of the elements into the final image.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a portrait, conceptual and architectural photographer. I have spent the past 10 years perfecting my skills to create dramatic portraits that include compositing and retouching. I obtained a Bachelor in Fine Arts with a focus on Photography. I have worked as a professional retoucher and a studio photographer which allowed me to utilize my skills and expand on them. I can be found on the weekends exploring smalls towns in North Dakota with a film camera in hand.
