Photography for me has always been a collaboration with the people I am photographing and I bring that attitude to all my work, whether it was my earliest projects documenting young Cambodian refugees in street gangs in the US or today, photographing in a factory or office here in Seattle. To be a great story teller you must get close, understand your subjects' lives and create images that are engaging and authentic. I've been using cameras since I was 6 years old to try to explain the world around me and it's my goal everyday, whether I'm photographing a billionaire CEO or my daughters, to show how even the most mundane experiences of our lives can be impactful when seen with a sensitive and creative vision.
Now the hard part - where are you from? I'm an American, born in Switzerland, raised in the UK and sent to British all-boys schools, which is why my accent changes. I am also a versatile commercial, industrial & editorial photographer now based in Seattle after working out of Bangkok, Tokyo and Paris for 15 years. I've traveled and worked in over 30 countries photographing everything from conflicts in Southeast Asia to business leaders in Japan, roughnecks in Siberia to beer halls in Prague - a range of experiences that has prepared me for anything, including the challenge chasing my two kids around with a camera.
