Justin is a freelance commercial and editorial photographer originally from the midwest. Life took him to California to study photography at Brooks Institute of Photography Santa Barbara where he learned both the technical and collaborative aspects of being a professional photographer. After he completed his studies he returned back to Minneapolis for another 7 years after which his fast growing photography business called him back to California but this time to Los Angeles. Although he has professionally been in the photography industry for nearly 15 years, his passion for the art first came to life when he was 11 and got his first camera. As a kid he moved around a lot as well as travelled quite a bit anywhere from the corners of the United States to the coral coves of Australia. The heart of an explorer with a camera was born within him very early on.
Camping and the outdoors was a huge part then and now, that can be seen in a lot of his photography. Ansel Adams was his hero in the arts and that inspired him to want to capture the moment and mood of how the day and place felt of wherever the picture was taken. “I want to captivate the audience and help them experience through these images the journey I experience being there,” explains Justin.
