Portrait by Matthew Bailey

About Me


I am a gay, Jewish photographer born and raised in Los Angeles. 

In a fast moving world of constant instant gratification, I find that my trajectory in photo and film is most rewarding in the journey, rather than the destination. 

I received my Bachelor's degree in Documentary Journalism from the University of Missouri and I am independently contracted in Los Angeles. 

My Process

My Work

The aim of "The Chromatic Sheep" is to visually honor and embrace our differences, focusing on identity, unique subcultures, and narratives of queerness in my creative trajectory. The brand name is a play on being "the black sheep," reclaiming the feeling of not fitting in to the status quo growing up and utilizing empathy in my work every day. 

Visibility for those often unseen and unheard is most impactful with media representation, so I take great pride and gratitude in have the opportunity to honor communities and their positive impact. 

Whether I am documenting a long term project, shooting an editorial feature, or working with a commercial client, I strive to accomplish a visceral, vibrant aesthetic that tells a story from the most authentic place.
