I am a Colorado event photographer who creates world-class photography and films for corporate clients, the direct selling industry, local businesses and non-profits in Colorado and around the world. I have photographed everything from small intimate corporate retreats in Hawaii to cruise ship incentive trips, and dynamic direct selling conventions spread across two arenas with 35,000 attendees. With more than 25 years working as a photojournalist for major media outlets and the world's top newspapers (NY Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, Reuters and major magazines), I am highly proficient at capturing dynamic moments, storytelling images and artistic photos from any event.

My team and I have photographed incentive trips and events worldwide, including the Bahamas, Cancun and Hawaii.


Incentive trips and corporate travel build motivation and teamwork for sales and leadership teams. I specialize in travel and incentive trips at destinations around the world, and will create a stunning showcase of images from your event, as well as highlight the amazing people and leaders who attend. You will have thousands of superb professional photographs for all your marketing and social media needs. Additionally, as an FAA certified drone pilot, I can add aerial and destination imagery worthy of Condé Nast Traveler to any corporate retreat or incentive travel program. I arrive at your destination early and create stunning imagery of the locations and countries where your events are held. I work with you and your team to create a detailed shot list for all your event and marketing needs.

A storytelling picture that captures the emotion of your event is worth a thousand words.


I photograph every type of event including conventions, trade shows, expos, corporate events, meetings, incentive trips, overseas travel, conferences, concerts, music festivals, fairs, charity events, award galas, parties, public relations events, sporting events, social events, film productions and political rallies. I can provide professional headshots, portraits and group portraits for any event. I have photographed giant conventions and events at America's Center and the Dome ( St. Louis, MO), the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center (Long Beach, CA), the SAP Center (San Jose, CA), the Dallas Convention Center and American Airlines Center (Dallas, TX), Cook Convention Center and FedEx Forum (Memphis, TN), Colorado Convention Center (Denver, CO) and a number of smaller venues throughout the US. I am based in Boulder and Denver, but travel frequently and work with a team of world class photographers and videographers in Florida, Los Angeles, Memphis, Dallas and Denver. My team can cover small or large events anywhere. Please also check out my event company's website: Event Horizon Media

My team can make artistic and memorable images from any size event in any type of lighting.

CONNECTIONS lie at the heart of my business. Connections with my subjects allow me to quickly put them at ease and make great photos. Connections with my clients guarantee that I always meet deadlines and exceed expectations. And connections with a network of highly respected photographers and filmmakers has helped me cultivate a team that can deliver amazing imagery from any event, including real-time results for social media or same-day slideshows. Whatever your needs, I get the job done on time, whether it means editing 10,000 images overnight, or ordering prints from a local store, picking them up and helping your team members paste them in personalized photo albums to meet their deadlines. Working long hours with my clients creates a close partnership, as we collaborate to create exceptional images and films to highlight the people and events we cover.


With a team of talented cinematographers and video producers, I can produce highlight films for arena-sized conferences and compelling profiles of top producers and their lifestyles. My films have been seen in giant arenas, on broadcast television and have earned Emmys, national Addys and numerous journalism awards. In 2010, TED Talks picked one of my films as one of 25 "Ads Worth Spreading" in the world.

The Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival and World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest draw more than 200,000 people to the banks of the Mississippi River each year to celebrate a different country.


Outstanding event photography captures the scope of an event, and music festival photography should capture the spirit of the audience. I worked for four years as the official photographer for the Memphis in May Music Festival and World Championship BBQ Cooking Festival, which draws over 200,000 people annually. I have covered many concerts and events for the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee and other venues around the country. I have also photographed a wide variety of events for the NBA, PGA and other clients, as well as covered countless other events throughout a 25-year newspaper career.
