My photos have been featured on the Weather Channel, AccuWeather, Fox 13 Tampa Bay, News Channel 8, Bay News 9 & ABC Action News. Prints of my photography are displayed in Amalie Arena for the Tampa Bay Lightning, Big Storm Brewery and at the Circuit de la Sarthe Automotive Museum for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. I have been a contributor to Jalopnik, Yahoo Autos, Yahoo Weather, Zwischengas, Endurance Magazine, SimRaceway, Brembo Race Technologies, Endless Brakes, l'endurance Magazine, RaceRevo, Florida Verve and The Checkered Flag. I am IMSA credentialed for the 2016 season and available for hire.

Being a Tampa native, I have a healthy fear of thunderstorms and lightning, so most of the storm photos you see here were taken from the relative safety of my car (which still carries its share of danger). One of the other huge benefits of living in Florida is having motorsports here for a good portion of the year when it's too cold to race throughout the rest of the country. I'm only posting the past year or so of racing events plus a "greatest hits" collection from 2009 - 2014. The Miscellaneous section of the site has some of my nature shots along with other recent stuff I've captured. Most of the time I just post those shots to Instagram...speaking of which, here are my social media accounts (no Facebook, sorry).

Thank you for taking the time to look at my photos and learn a little bit about me. I have never taken a photography course but thankfully the internet has made it much easier to learn the craft. Not only are there a ton of tutorials about the technical aspects of photography, but sites like Flickr, 500px and Instagram make it easy to view other talented photographers' work. The one thing that probably helped me the most in learning photography was being able to see the EXIF / metadata from shots that I liked from other photographers - the EXIF data shows which settings the photographer used when they captured the image. Whenever possible, I'll include my EXIF info just in case someone wants to see what settings I used to take the photo. I'm also fortunate enough to be friends with some exceptionally talented photographers who constantly inspire me.
