Hi there! I’m Luke.

I’m a photographer based in Maryland, though I don't mind traveling.  I'm actually obsessed with it. Whether it be planes, trains, or automobiles I love getting out of the house and seeing new places.  So if that's what you're looking for, I'm your guy. 

I have a journalistic approach to how I work.  I like to think that my job is to document people, events, things etc. as they are, in the most beautiful way possible.  To me that means not using cookie cutter poses, utilizing natural light, and photographing people and things in a very organic and not forced manner.  I feel like that is far more appealing and interesting than a traditional portrait.  Those are the kinds of moments that I like save forever through my photography.

Commercial, portraits, travel, and weddings are the bulk of what I do but if there's something else you had in mind, send me message and let's chat about it! You can get in touch with me via the contact page on my website.

I've been fortunate enough to work with some pretty incredible clients and to have had my work published / featured by a variety of publications.  I've included some of the more notable ones to the right.
