I am a longtime local of Seattle, living here for 20 of my 26 short years. Those other six years (2002 - 2007) were spent on the other half of the state in the mountainous Methow Valley (3 years) and the small Columbia River orchard town of Brewster (3 years). These two locations, although short lived, 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 HS, I pursued baseball at the University of Washington, and later at Bellevue College. My career was short lived due to a pitching injury (Tommy John), but I quickly realized that when one door closes, another one opens. Throughout all of my college years I had friends asking me for photography favors, but once my baseball career had come to an end I decided to follow my passion of photography and turn it into a business.
Fast forward five years. After much hard work, long nights, early mornings and many ups & downs, I have transformed The FourFront from its infancy stage of taking photos for friends and colleagues to a well loved media company in the Greater Seattle Area. I have had the pleasure of working with new couples across the Puget Sound on their beautiful Wedding days for over four years now, continuing The FourFront's growth as a mainstream Wedding Photography business in the Greater Seattle Area. I have also had the wonderful opportunity of covering a diverse set of events for the ESPN, Winter X Games, Oakley, Playboy, Tone It Up, Benaroya Hall, Paramount Theater, Dom Perignon, Krug, Ruinart and Absolut Vodka, as well as musicians Cobra Starship and Grimes.
Whether I am taking pictures of beautiful newlyweds, happy families, high school Seniors, or crazy thousand person parties, I love every minute of it as I following my passions and dreams.When I'm not taking photos for someone else I am still carrying around my camera, often to my wife's displeasure.
Capturing fascinating moments from behind the lens has become a way of life for me. Whether you are simply looking for a photographer that can do a great job or are looking for a style that is completely different, The FourFront definitely has a unique and personable style that I think you will love.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to working with you!
