Fine Art Photography Inspired by Wanderlust

My shop features home decor and wall art prints for lovers of travel and nature scenes. I'm a Chicago-based photographer that shoots with a favor of natural light and a documentary style. Some of my favorite subjects are often the most mundane caught in an extraordinary moment. My goal is simply to share those moments with others.

Inspired by wanderlust, I gravitate towards street photography, architecture, landscapes, and the documentation of urban and rural decay. Aesthetically, my work focuses on complementary colors, symmetry, the behavior of natural light, and the way light alters dark spaces. On my creative process, exploring is one of my favorite things to do, both near home and when traveling. I'm constantly looking for new places to document and time spent on my travels continues to shape my work. Inspiration comes to me in other forms as well, through music, film, books, all things vintage, and far too much coffee.

My interest in photography began when I was young and has continued on through my studies at Columbia College Chicago and into my work. Fine art and editorial photography have always been my passion, though I have experience in various studio settings for retouching, portraiture, wedding and sports photography. I enjoy all types of photography and art, but Etsy is my space for fine art and supporting the handmade community. Currently, I have only prints listed for sale but I'm open to custom orders for anything from greeting cards to gallery canvas wraps. If you're interested in something not already listed in my shop or wish to contact me about local events, just send me a message!

I hope you enjoy my view.
