I have a passion for art. It's happening all around us all the time. My greatest joy is capturing its beauty. Whether it's the bride and groom's first kiss or a cheetah running on the African plains, or the heavenly northern lights, I believe beauty is all around us. I believe that photography is among the greatest creations of mankind. Photography does more than allow an artist to capture a moment in time. It allows one to capture life in its bare elements. It captures its vulnerable moments, its candid moments, its joy, pain, beauty, and perhaps the most essential element; love.This is why I started CG Photography in 2003. I consider it a great honor when someone asks me to photograph them.
But it's not always just me doing the shooting. My amazing wife, Andi is also a photographer. Together, we are The Malibu Artists. We shoot weddings, portraits, northern lights, and everything in between. She brings a woman's perspective to all of our shoots and her creativity enhances not just my work, but our final product collectively. Her eye sees things I don't and my technical nerdiness is balanced by her great creativity.
We love sunsets. Most often, you can probably run into us on any given day during sunset on one of Malibu's many beaches. We are also avid travelers. Chasing the northern lights is our favorite thing to do.
We approach photography with the simple concept that “life is art”. We love photography and we love life. If you feel the same way, let’s get to know each other better.
