Still Photographer Emmy Award winning Photojournalist.
My experience in photography includes producing social media content, covering news events, lifestyle magazine print, fashion, lifestyle portraits, editorials, landscapes, cityscapes, music concerts, corporate functions, and broadcast television. I also shoot and edit news story styled packages and sizzle videos crafted specifically for social media consumption.
I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, where I developed a deep love for photography, capturing images with both picture stills and videography. I began with my first published magazine print work in late 2014 and by mid 2015, I decided to leave my day job with an espresso machine company to pursue photography, full-time.
In 2016, more professional and creative opportunities in photography presented itself which led me out West to Las Vegas, Nevada, where I currently reside. Las Vegas has brought several opportunities for me to cover a vast variety of subjects to document for both photography and videography. From Red Carpet events to Corporate events to events such at the 2016 Presidential Debates or CES and to the tragic shooting that took place in 2017 at the Route 91 Country Music Festival. In addition, I have conducted numerous on camera interviews covering a wide range of topics and Clients.
On my personal time, I truly enjoy exploring the outdoors with my camera and navigating the desert and getting in between the mountains, the pine trees, and the lakes while teaching myself how to camp so I can spend more time in nature. On the other hand, I also enjoy walking the city to find interesting subjects to photograph.
While I will be periodically updating this site, you can find me posting my work more regularly as post fresh content on my Instagram feed. You can find me @GaiChicken www.Instagram.com/GaiChicken.
Thank you for stopping by and taking time to look at the work of photography I've collected over the years which I truly love.
