Welcome. I am a photographer in Los Angeles, California with a passion for telling the stories of rural and otherwise out-of-the-way people and places. I believe in the power of photography to transcend stereotypes and to examine the nuances of a complicated world.

I have made photographs for the New York Times, Reuters, High Country News, the Christian Science Monitor, the Forum News Service, the UNDP, UNFPA and UNICEF in Mongolia, and others. My work has been published by TIME, the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, the Guardian, the Chicago Tribune, NPR, and others.

Before moving to California, I covered North Dakota's Bakken oil boom, worked as a photographer/photo editor and designer at High Country News magazine in Colorado, as a newspaper reporter in Maine, and as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mongolia and Bangladesh. I studied photojournalism at Boston University and was a student at the Eddie Adams Workshop XXIII and Missouri Photo Workshop 63.

Aside from photographing, I enjoy the calm of the backcountry and the chaos of a heavy metal mosh pit equally. I like to read, cook Indian food, travel, mountain bike and skateboard. I'm always up to explore.

Got a project idea? Call or send a message – I'm looking forward to working with you.

Thanks to Denver-based photographer Theo Stroomer for the image.
