Oyster Farm Productions helps connect communities. Businesses and organizations struggle to communicate because they are overwhelmed with the day-to-day work to think about clear messaging. We help people share their passions, products, and services within the community (town, city, state, or nation). We don't just bring cameras to the process, everyone with a phone has one of those. We bring creativity, visual integrity, and curiosity to your project and idea. We aren't videographers, we're your communication partners. You know what's best for your business, you know your audience; we help you have lasting conversation with them. As we succeed in our efforts, the world becomes genuinely connected with one another, businesses thrive, and communities grow.

Studying the art of photography since 2006, I’ve devoted any spare moment to furthering my skills and knowledge of the industry. I started my photography career with high school sports photography, having progressed to specialize in Active Lifestyle Commercial work. A passion of rock climbing, cycling, and the outdoors feeds my devotion to capturing how people interact their environment.
I like to think that my work stands out because the focus that I put on the athletes in my images. I try to capture more than just the really cool crag, the rushing waterfall, or the setting sun behind the incoming tide. Rather, I do my best to capture the emotion and determination exuded by the subject in the frame.
