Story
Tagline
A fan of all things epic & adventurous
Introduction

What drives my creative instinct is seeking out those epic, breathtaking, grand, or even ordinary shots that’ll spark a creative thought or leave the viewer with a sense of wonder, awe, or amazement. 

I shoot with my Canon 5D2 but also love using my iPhone camera to the max while traveling around. I shoot a lot of time-lapse/video as well as still photography and also use Dynamic Perception’s Stage Zero rig. I’m currently based in Washington DC and started UZC Media as a photography entity through which I pursue my creative interests and projects I’m working on.

Give me a shout if you like my work on here – I love collaborating with other artists on creative projects.
