What is photography to me? I would have to say that it is memories. Photography allows me to freeze moments in time; feelings, emotions, an idea, an image; and help keep those moments around forever. As someone who has lost most of their long term memory and has trouble with short term memory photography and the photos that I create help me to remember things that have happened, provide a way for me to reconnect with places I have been and situations that I have been involved in. That is what I try to bring to the clients that I work with. Whether it is doing product photography and trying to tell a story with the photos I create, portrait sessions and freezing a small moment in time to help someone look their best, or wedding photography and memorializing the couples special day it’s all about the memories that are created.
As a person I am a 36 year old freelance photographer out of Sheridan, OR. I have a strong background in IT both from a hardware perspective as well as software development. I currently freelance as a small business IT professional called Yeti Cave Studio. One of my biggest hobbies has been miniature wargaming, especially Warhammer 40k. I think this is what really got me into photography as I wanted to help people document and show off the amazing and beautiful work that was put into painting their models.
