I am a documentary photographer and educator based in Arkansas and New York. My work is a mixture of my past experiences, bridging documentary, personal, and fine art. I began my photography career shooting for The Reporter in Vacaville, CA. Going freelance I had the freedom to pursue my interest in visual storytelling and portraiture, often photographing musicians and music groups. My current work has a strong focus on underrepresented communities, aiming to break the visual prejudices of race, class, age, and gender. My clients include, Netflix, New York Times, National Geographic, A+E Networks, Harper’s Magazine, The Atlantic, Manhattan Magazine, Backstage Magazine, Novo Foundation, American Photo, TIME Lightbox, Lens Culture, and Wall Street Journal. I have exhibited at the Bronx Documentary Center, the Bronx Museum, and Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, a museum dedicated to telling the story of the African American experience in Arkansas. In 2015 I developed a Photo-Therapy program at the William Hodson Senior Center in the Bronx, where, through the use of photography, older residents are able to openly explore personal and social issues. I continue to teach visual/social workshops similar to this in the American South.
Available to travel for assignments and workshops within the US and internationally.
