About Me

When I was 16, Papa presented me with one of his spare cameras to play with. Eventually, I learned that photography was much more than simply pointing and clicking. Starting out with a Pentax Honeywell film camera, I learned what proper exposure and composition were through many many discarded photos. Even as I inevitably created garbage, Papa would always encourage me by picking up my photos at the store or buying me more film and new equipment. 

All those years I didn’t want to just throw myself out there as a “photographer” until I was sure I knew what I was doing. A wonderful support system pushed me to better myself in it.

Thanks Papa – I love and miss you so much – this is dedicated to you.

HI I’M IAN.

I FREAKING LOVE TAKING PHOTOS!

I always say you can have many loves, but only one real passion. I found my passion.
 

In another life, I’d be a park ranger in Yosemite or work at DisneyWorld – my two absolute favorite places in the world! The beauty of Yosemite makes me want to photograph more elopements there, and the joy of being in Disneyworld truly makes it “the happiest place on earth.”

I’m a fan of IPAs, yoga, and good sports trivia.
