Behind the Lens - SL4 Photography

Behind the Lens

Hello and thank you for visiting SL4 Photography! A little bit about me… I grew up fascinated by images and how a story can be told through photographs, TV or film. Born and raised in northern Illinois, I was fortunate to be surrounded by family that encouraged this interest; I even went to college for it. I received my BA in television from Columbia College Chicago and then moved to Atlanta where I have been living for the past decade. During that time, my passion for photography has greatly evolved. Though I enjoy and continually utilize the latest in digital camera innovation, just as often I find myself trying to capture the world around me with the simple click of my iPhone. Realizing that this pastime was more than just a hobby, I finally took the plunge and opened SL4 Photography.

My business comprises two distinct approaches to the visual medium. The first embodies a desire to help others preserve those treasured events whose value only increases as the years go by. I want my clients to fully enjoy the moment and celebrate that wedding, birthday or Little League game while secure in the knowledge that a professional is expertly capturing the special occasion for them. I am available for any family gathering or social event, and whatever your need may be, I will ensure a perfectly preserved keepsake of that day for you to forever cherish.

In addition to my event services, I have made available prints that showcase my enthusiasm for landscape and travel photography. In particular, I have developed a strong affinity for visiting my local botanical garden. There I am reminded of the allure of the natural world and can focus solely on the beauty around me. No rules. No distractions. Just me and my camera searching to expose the majesty around us that we too often ignore.

I attempt to do the same when traveling abroad. I love exploring and capturing the essence of whatever sleepy town or bustling city that I am visiting. My goal is to find those images that encapsulate both what is familiar and loved about that part of the world while at the same time revealing something new about it. My joy lies in being able to share with others these discoveries.
