Born in Niagara Falls, USA, 1988
2010 B.A. Visual Studies - SUNY Buffalo
Worked through University photographing youth sports in Western New York. In this time amassed practical knowledge of camera operation and strobe lighting, and developed an instinct and affinity for the art of freezing action.
Spent the next 7 years living in Los Angeles, playing in bands, partying too much, loving, learning the hard way, bartending to pay bills, traveling, sleeping under the stars as often as possible, and occasionally picking up the camera.
After a series of events and life choices, ended up in Portland, OR in 2018 with a reignited passion, focus, and vision for photography, especially involving the human form in action, and leaning into the active lifestyle of this city.
Along with action, love to capture portraits, editorials, food, nature, travel, and music videos. Co-founder of Maydup Creative LLC along with brother William Fortier, making art and having fun doing what we do.
