What year did you start at Lakeview? – 2015
As the youngest of 4 (brother 17 years older, sister 15 years older, brother 13 years older) I grew up pretty much as an only child. While growing up our families were always very close, on my father’s side of the family there were 9 siblings along with their spouses and kids, my mother’s side there were 14 siblings with spouses and kids. There were very few weekends that I can remember where there weren’t any aunts, uncles and cousins around. My father was sort of the official photographer/videographer of our clan, so naturally when I was old enough (6/7) I became his assistant and what is known as a second shooter.
I bought my first camera with the money I earned from my paper route at the age of 9 (a Kodak Instamatic), and as they say the rest is history. My work has been in art shows around the world winning several awards. My primary focus has been commercial work, the images of food you see on the menu, yes those are real pictures (you wouldn’t want to eat that food though!), TV and web video commercials, those sort of projects. Now my primary focus is on producing high quality images and videos for the church to help spread the word of God worldwide.
