I am a photographer and artist based in Virginia. I primarily take portraits but I photograph whatever is necessary to complete the task at hand or capture the ideas I wish to convey. I graduated college from Washington and Lee university with a degree in religious studies. I also studied german and philosophy while there, and took only two photography courses. I am essentially self-taught as a photographer and have learned through experience rather than through a classroom. While I do regret not studying photography or other art, the direction of my work is based entirely on various philosophical and religious matters, making my course of study quite invaluable.
