About / Contact

La Pistola Photography was founded in 2007 as a vehicle for visual creative expression and exploration. Since then I have been fortunate enough to win Best Photographer at Austin Fashion Week four years in a row, work with numerous artists and celebrities, and I’ve had work published in a variety of national magazines.

I mostly work on commercial projects such as fashion photography, product and food photography, magazine editorials, and live music. Having worked with many talented hair stylists, makeup artists, and set designers over the years, I often collaborate on what I call creative concept portraits. These include Hollywood-caliber themes, hair and makeup, lighting, and styled settings. Family portraits, professional head shots, and events are still a welcome addition to my shooting schedule as well. Reach out to discuss a project!
