I got my first camera at a really young age before a family trip out west. It was a magical experience and as my interest grew I must have driven my parents crazy always begging for more Polaroid flash bars. Those things were awesome. As the continuum has progressed, I’m currently using a full frame Canon with goals of transitioning to medium format soon.
Both of my parents were career public school educators so I can’t help but think that teaching is in my blood. I really enjoy the opportunity to work with people who are passionate about their photography and helping them to unearth and develop their personal artistic style.
I share the whirlwind of this life with my lovely wife, the human tornado that is our son, and a happy old soul of constant shedding that has chosen to put up with us named Keoki.
Originally from Western Pennsylvania, I’m currently living in Gig Harbor, Washington. It was while living in San Diego, after a 5 year enlistment in the US Navy, that a trip to the Grand Canyon sparked what would be a career in photography.

“ Nick and Byron are a great team. I also had some very technical questions about settings in my camera to prepare for a trip to Africa to photograph gorillas. They helped me through both the concepts and the technicalities until l I mastered them. And they gave a fantastic lightroom tutorial. Highly recommend their workshops!”
