I am a Chicago-based photographer with a passion for visual storytelling, creativity, and collaboration. An ad executive turned photographer and filmmaker, my career has spanned the wide spectrum of the visual arts.
As an ad executive, I developed campaigns for such blue-chip clients as Gatorade, Helene Curtis, eBay, and Vespa. I later founded Fulton Market Films, an independent film production company producing documentary and narrative feature films; and JFP, a studio creating stills and motion projects for fashion and commercial clients. When I'm not in the studio, I'm out in the street, and I feel very fortunate to have won several awards for my street series photographs.
The thru-line in all of my work is humanity--I believe the stronger the human connection is, the more powerful the image will be.
