I am an editorial and commercial photographer, born in Stuttgart, Germany and raised in Stuttgart and Denver, Colorado. I attended photography school at The Brooks Institute in California and at The New School in New York City, where I built my photography career.
My photographs have been published in W Magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, The Wall Street Journal and Schön Magazine, and I have worked with clients such as Steve Madden, The American Heart Association and The Gerald J. Friedman Foundation. Though I continue to shoot a wide range of commercial and editorial work — from travel features and essays to healthcare campaigns — I am especially passionate about portraiture. My portrait series have been covered by The Huffington Post, Harper's Bazaar and Marie Claire, and featured in international photo exhibits. In 2017, my "Transparent" series, celebrating the transgender community, was endorsed by Kenneth Cole and used in a campaign by The Gerald J. Friedman Foundation to highlight its transgender health and wellness programs in New York.
In addition to photography, I have also written two books: “What They Didn’t Teach You in Photo School” (2015) and “If You’re Bored With Your Camera, Read This Book” (2017) published by Ilex Press and The Hatchette Book Group.
