Portrait of Photographer

About the Photographer

I am a professional photographer based out of Overland Park, Kansas. I’ve been taking pictures for over ten years. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a Bachelors of Science in Photography, as well as a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. While attending the University of Central Missouri, I won several awards for my work in product, portrait, and fine art photography. My photographic emphasis was in studio photography, and with this area of focus, I mastered the subtle, demanding techniques of studio lighting. I apply these skills to my portrait photography to create high-quality, professional images that capture the personality of the subjects. The combination of these two areas of study has trained me to not only understand the technical aspects of photography, but the aesthetics of composition and design. Most photographers in our area have either no formal training at all, or have skills only in “natural light” photography. I did an internship and was then employed with Alistair Tutton Photography. Alistair Tutton is one of the leading commercial photographers in Kansas City. I’m an energetic, laid-back person that likes to create a fun work environment. I have done beautiful weddings, senior photography, newborn photography, and family photography. I make sure that clients are comfortable and that the experience is a positive one. This makes me great around children, and it really helps capture the best photos. When it comes to my photo editing, I am meticulous and thorough. I demand only the best work of myself, and take great pride in the polished images that I produce. My editing skills directly correlate with my advanced knowledge of printing processes. When you get your prints through me, you get perfect color on high-quality photo paper. I would love to hear about your personal photographic needs!
