I love how dogs see the world. To a dog, a ball is not just a ball. That shiny, slobbery plaything is an opportunity, a challenge, a steadfast companion. In my dog photography I strive to glimpse life on their level—A bowl of food is love and comfort. A warm bath is the ultimate back rub. A knock at the door is a chance to prove courage and loyalty. Therein capturing the reality of modern dog ownership—a reminder to enjoy the small things.
My journey with dogs began with Annie, my intensely brave and loving Boston terrier rescue, followed shortly after by her adopted brothers Murray and Ollie, who are just as full of life. This wild trio keeps me laughing and from taking life too seriously. They also brought about my passion for matching the click of a camera with the wagging tail of a happy dog.
A native Mainer, I developed a love of all things outdoors early on. In addition to my dog photography, I also create work with an environmental conservation and fine art focus. I'm a contributing photographer to National Geographic Creative and hold a BFA in Photographic Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology. When I’m not making photos or chasing after the pups, I enjoy spending time in the great outdoors and practicing my downward dogs.
