I took a camera out to the desert in July of 2004 and the rest is history.

Ever since, I've used photography to connect with people and document my life's adventures - forging a unique style and eye for light in the process.

I specialize in editorial-style location shooting and manipulating light within an environment, yielding images that are simultaneously dark and vibrant.

You can contact me directly at avantgardenias@gmail.com, or use the contact tab if you're interested in booking a shoot with me. The more you tell me about what you are trying to acheive, the better I can plan and tailor our session. It also helps if you can point to some of your favorite images on the site as a reference.
