Distilled Images Photography

Portrait photography.

Event photography.

Art photography.

“To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them that they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed. Just as a camera is a sublimation of the gun, to photograph someone is a subliminal murder - a soft murder, appropriate to a sad, frightened time.”
― Susan Sontag, On Photography

I'm a visual storyteller. My photographs are all about showing you off in your best light, to tell the story of the moment. Whether I'm photographing you for new professional headshots or capturing memories of your special event, I let my passion for storytelling shine through.

While I'm at home in a formal studio setting, when I can I prefer to find locations that

correspond with the individual - if you're an athlete, let's shoot in a gym or field, if you're a dancer, let's shoot in a studio or club, if you're a native Californian, let's shoot at the beach. And, of course, if I'm photographing your party, your fundraiser, your bon voyage or just a club event you wish to promote - let's get on location and make the night happen!

In the end, you are the story.
