About

I am an editorial and commercial photographer in Denver, Colorado. 

With strong roots in documentary photography, I take on projects inspired by something real. My work leads me to branches on "the tree of culture" as described by Frank Deford. Every shoot is a result of creative collaboration between our team and subjects - along with enthusiasm, hard work, abundant curiosity, the occasional McGuyver DIY improvisation, and a quirky sense of humor. 

Outside of life as a photographer: I drink good coffee, grow interesting succulents, and go biking whenever I can.  I have a mild obsession with the tumbleweed.

How do you pronounce your name?

"Tay-oh", which rhymes with "Day-o" and "Hey-o!" I am part Dutch and that's my nickname, short for Theodore.
