Brian is a creative powerhouse with his restaurant Saint Lawrence Gridiron, serving customers the most delicious brisket sandwiches, pulled pork with mustard sauce, grilled bison and bones & toast. I'm not actually sure what bones & toast is, but I do know that in addition to being a wonderful chef, Brian is also an amazing architect. I was honored to create a portrait for him to reflect his unique creative vision.

Since 2012, they’ve been selected as Best Resort by Northwest Events + Meetings, Four Star Award winner by Forbes Travel Guide, and a #1 Luxury Hotel in Idaho by US News & World Report, to name a few

When Home Depot hired me to photograph the essence of their new paint department in a photojournalistic style, I was excited about the possibilities. Here are a few of the images that resulted from the assignment.
I met David at the Boise Towne Square Mall in the fall of 2016. He was just walking out of Forever 21 when he caught my eye and I instantly knew that I wanted to photograph him. Unbeknownst to me at the time, he's an incredible athlete. He is a member of the competitive cheerleading squad Riot Cheer in Idaho and an all around awesome dude.
