Get To Know Me
I am a longtime local of Seattle, living there for 20 of my 28 short years. The other eight years? Well, the most recent two have been spent settling down and starting a family in Olympia, and the other six years, a period between 2002 and 2007, were spent on the other side of Washington State in the mountainous Methow Valley and the small Columbia River orchard town of Brewster. These two Eastern Washington locations are what really opened my eyes to the beauty of the world, inspiring me to grab a camera and start capturing moments from behind the lens.
After graduating from Brewster High School, I pursued baseball at the University of Washington. Unfortunately my pitching career was cut short due to an injury and ineffective Tommy John surgery, but I soon realized that when one door closes, another one opens. Throughout all of my college years I had friends asking me for photography favors. However it wasn’t until my baseball playing days had come to an end that I decided to follow my passion for photography and turn it into a business.
Through years of hard work, holding up to five part-time jobs simultaneously to be able to follow this passion, the FourFront has transformed from a one-man operation into a well-loved media company. I have had the pleasure of working with new couples on their wedding day, families with new additions, and companies throwing the wildest parties. I'm humbled to have traveled across the country to work with amazing people and explore different cultures and lifestyles as I continue The FourFront's growth in media production.
Whether I am taking pictures of beautiful newlyweds, happy families, high school seniors, or crazy multi-thousand person parties, I love every minute of it. Photography has allowed me to pursue my dreams and passions, and I would say taking pictures has become a way of life for me. Even when I’m not taking pictures for someone else, I’m still carrying around my camera snapping photos, often to my wife Stephanie’s dismay.
Whatever you’re photography needs may be, the FourFront is there to do a great job at capturing and creating those unique moments in your life.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to working with you!
