Stories are my game; capturing emotion, grit, and empathy. For me those things all come first and most of the time a pretty picture comes out of it. I am a freelance photographer based in NYC focusing on events and photojournalism. Born and raised in Colorado, projects I do for me usually involve getting a little dirty, traveling, and combining human interest and nature. You can find my work at my website, iStock, Cavan Images, and Shutterstock. Some of my past clients include TEDx Gramercy, IMBY, Colorado Community Media, Big Sisters and Big Brother.

Looking forward to connecting!

At the end of the show model, activist, and event organizer Khrystyana raises her fist in celebration in Times Square, December 2, 2017. The show which was titled, The Real Catwalk, began as a casting call on Khrystyana's Instagram account, "This Saturday, around 2-2:30 pm, a lot of volunteers will throw a gorilla style lingerie fashion show in the middle of Times Square." read her Instagram post. She went on to say, "Come watch and be inspired to LOVE YOUR body as it is on whatever path you are on." While only half of the original models showed up Khrystana counted it as success and it could be felt from the models and the crowd.
Models put on their street clothes after the show comes to an end in Times Square, December 2, 2017. After spending the better half of the afternoon in 48-degree weather, models quickly redressed. But not before posing for many photos after the walk as they would at any traditional runway show.
A model poses at the end of the runway during The Real Catwalk event at Times Square, December 2, 2017. The walk was performed the same week as Victoria's Secret lingerie show but wasn't a protest. "Not against Victoria's Secret, but just to support those who can't really relate to Victoria's Secret model's" explained Khrystana, the event's organizer.
