Artist Statement:

Photographer based in Portland, Maine serving all of New England.

Specializing in portraits, special events (concerts/sports), editorial and commercial.


My love for photography began at an early age when I received my first film camera from my grandfather Stanley Weston. My grandfather, an International Boxing Hall of Fame inductee for his work in Boxing taught me the basics and took me to my first boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for the Tyson vs. Bruno fight. I have since found my love for boxing/boxing photography, portraiture, sports, concerts and special event photography.

Based out of Portland, Maine, I am continuously pushing photographic boundaries making pictures that give the viewer more than an image but an experience, emotion, and connection. As a photographer I am a master storyteller and use the photographic experience as a way of finding truth and my own connection to this world.
