I've worked so hard for this and it hasn't even started. I've spent the past two years crafting a curriculum that is powerful enough to inspire photographers all over the world. And, finally I think I've developed that course. I'm proud to announce the following West Coast workshops, which are now open for reservations! We have some amazing sponsors on board and I'm looking forward to meeting all of you! These seats should go fast, so make sure you lock in your spot now.

I've been holding back this exciting news for awhile now, but it's finally here! Several months ago I was approached and interviewed by the international publication Digital SLR Photography Magazine regarding my past, imagery and future. The issue hit stands today, all over the world.

I consider this a massive milestone in my career and I couldn't be more thrilled about it. Grab a copy at any newsstand to read my story. Thank you so for the love and support, it really keeps the fire fueled. www.digitalslrphoto.com

So, I just launched my first email newsletter "Traversing New Territory." It may not be a big deal to many, but it's certainly a stepping stone for my career and a new way to connect to all my friends, clients and followers. http://eepurl.com/bjPx65 

Join my list for exclusive news, behind the scenes and content. I won't try to sell you anything and I won't spam you. You won't regret it, promise. http://bit.ly/claycooknews

Story
Tagline
An award-winning published photographer and filmmaker, specializing in fashion editorial, commercial and advertising photography.
Introduction
I listen to Lady Gaga and Lamb Of God. I love to blog.

I’ve always connected to people through language, art, film, music and 
creativity. I started performing music with 4 friends on stages and local clubs at the age of 16. By the age of 24, our act “(intheclear)” had grown to sell over 20,000 records and toured all across the nation. 

Over the course of that musical career, I not only honed the craft of recording and performing live, but also graphic design and video editing. By the time the band split in 2010, I had designed hundreds of flyers, edited many photos and cut up tons of video footage. People started to pay me to do the same for them and my creative career flourished. 

It wasn’t until December of 2010; I received my first DSLR camera as a gift. My love for photography blindsided me and began to snowball over everything in 
its path. I began shooting all in sight, from people and animals to beautiful 
landscapes; I wanted to capture it all. I’ve been blessed to know many creative people from all walks of life and have learned to mold and shape my vision of photography through their inspiration. 

And, many late nights on YouTube. 

Now, with a sharpened eye and field experience, I’ve recognized my natural ability and true passion in fashion, commercial and lifestyle photography. Using the knowledge I’ve gained, I am not only able to capture the vision, but also manipulate it into art, bigger than life.

My work has been published in Louisville Magazine, STORY Magazine, MOUR Magazine, The Courier Journal, The Voice Tribune, NFocus Magazine, Essere Magazine, Vedere Magazine, Dark Beauty Magazine and Vouge.It.

I have worked with NEXT Model Management, BMG Models, Sigal Models & Talent, Wings Model Management, COSMO Model & Talent Agency & Heyman Talent.

I shoot with both Canon and Nikon. I check Facebook every 2 minutes.
