Hello, there! I am a photographer/art teacher living in Los Angeles with my amazingly calming wife who is a video game producer, master puzzle maker, and a damn tasty home chef. We are in the exciting process of trying to start a family!!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

After working as a Photographer and Video Editor for brands such as Google, Activision Blizzard, UPS, Sony Online Entertainment, and NBC- I am now back to photography full time while teaching kids photography, video, and media art.

Before finishing college, I was teaching with the Child Development Resource Center in San Luis Obispo which is a child abuse prevention program serving at-risk kids. There I learned the incredible value of bringing fun into learning and giving kids tools to think and create for themselves. Most importantly, I learned the important practice of speaking to kids like the capable minds they are.

Those values and years of excellent work with parents and kids are how I've crafted both my fun and relaxed family photos, and media art lessons for kids and teens. 

PAST WORK:

  • Activision Blizzard (video editing, production, & photography)
  • UPS Corporate (video/multi-media)
  • Google (photography)
  • NBC (photography)
  • Sony (media art)

Samaria is absolutely incredible when it comes to doing what she loves! We’ve had family portraits done which I cherish because she captures exactly who we are, and today my children began taking photography classes with her. The whole time they were so inspired. Watching my girls learn and create, I truly felt like she opened up a magical wonderland for them. By the end of the session, they were full of giggles and smiles! They couldn’t stop talking about it after she left and they can’t wait for their next session.

What a wonderful experience with The Sprouting Image photography! With a large group from ages 11 months to 72 years old, we were a busy group and Samaria was flexible, creative, skilled and enjoyable to work with. She was punctual and efficient, but also a lot of fun. We felt so lucky to have had her as our photographer for special family photos!

WHEN I'M NOT WORKING:

I teach photography with an amazing organization, Las Fotos Project.  They are a non-profit photo program whose mission is to bring positive change to girls facing adversity. Checkout their amazing work here!

I also sing Alto in an awesome LGBT choir (West Coast Singers) which is basically free therapy.
