My passion for photography began at a young age while growing up at my family’s camera shop, Pardee’s Cameras in Sacramento CA. I started off selling used 35mm cameras, gradually learning the fundamentals of photography from my father and brother and ultimately became a well-rounded sales consultant. Founded in 1946, Pardee’s Cameras established itself as a leading photography supply company serving Northern California and served as a major influence in my development as a photographer. In 1999 I moved to New York City to work with some of the best photographers on earth. In 2004 I began my NorCal based freelance photography career.  Now in 2022 I diversify my time with photography & video production, my San Francisco Bay Yacht Charter business and music production.
