I’m fascinated with capturing motion through time and space into a single photograph. Using LED lights with custom color patterns and long exposure photography, I’m able to tell the story of movement. This technique reveals beautiful light trails created by paths of familiar objects. These light trails have not been artificially created with Photoshop and represent the actual paths of the objects.

My photos focus on motions in nature and in urban landscapes, as well as human movement. I am inspired by the works and pioneering techniques of Étienne-Jules Marey, Anton Giulio Bragaglia, Gjon Mili, and Frank Gilbreth. The large outdoor installations of Christo and Jeanne-Claude also inspire me.

Please contact me if you’re interested in collaborating on a project, or would like to license my photos. I am also available for custom photo shoots and photographic consulting services.
