About

I am an editorial and commercial photographer in Denver, Colorado with roots in documentary journalism.

My personal projects explore American culture through the evolution of symbols and communities, often with a touch of levity. For commissioned work, 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. 

I work with Nikon and Profoto equipment. I shoot film (Mamiya 6) whenever I get the chance.

Additionally: I have perfect pitch, and a deep love of music to go along with it. I drink my coffee with heavy cream. I've built several bicycles, and head out to the mountains whenever I can to ride. 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.
