Introduction: I empower professionals and creatives, and I help brands and organizations grow. I’ve always been industrious, creative, and a little different. My photography career began by putting my engineering degree at risk so I could take as many assignments for my college newspaper and yearbook as I could. After college, I took an engineering job with a little startup called XM Satellite Radio just as the satellites were being launched—and before we had any customers—and I spent the following 13 years building, running, and managing an exponentially-growing CRM system for XM / SiriusXM, while running a music and portrait photography business for myself on the side. During that time, I shot live and press/promo images all over the East Coast and California for local and A-list musicians, artists, bands, and festivals. In 2014, I relocated to Salt Lake City, Utah, where I ran the fashion set and shot product marketing and catalog images for Overstock.com for a year, and then moved on to another tech job with a banking software company. This took me around the world managing banking software products--and shooting where I could--but something was missing. In 2020 I left the tech world to run my own commercial and portrait photography business, and I haven't looked back. Since then, I’ve shot a series of small business owners and artists coping with the COVID-19 pandemic that ran in Salt Lake Magazine, fashion images for a designer that imports alpaca fabrics from family farms in Peru and produces accessories in Salt Lake City, an ongoing portrait series for a local bakery on a national trajectory, and countless small business and corporate PR, event, and product engagements. The cover and lead article for the September 2021 issue of Tire Review Magazine is my photography. Just recently, I photographed the Western Governors' Association's Chair's Initiative event, hosted by Utah's Governor Spencer J. Cox, and I was featured on Giggster's list of top event photographers in Salt Lake City. As a portrait photographer, I don’t always follow the rules, but I try to connect the subject and viewer through what I think is the inherent magic of human existence. As a commercial and event photographer, I bring a unique proposition to the table. In addition to being a PPA Certified Professional Photographer and Profoto Certified Light Shaper, I'm also a Pragmatic Marketing PMC-III Certified Product Manager. Thus, with an understanding of products, value propositions, branding, and positioning, along with technically-strong and creative photography, I can produce the very best, innovative imagery for my clients. I don't always think what's popular is best, but I know that being different stands out... and is remembered. 👍 Certified Professional Photographer (PPA) 👍 Certified Light Shaper (Profoto) 👍 member American Society of Media Photographers 👍 member Professional Photographers of America 👍 featured in Giggster's Best Event Photographers in Salt Lake City Drop me a line to get started on your project!

Having not had a personal photoshoot before I was super nervous. Getting in contact with Jesse was super awesome! Jesse really made me feel comfortable right from day one and ensured scheduling was in sync with my calendar. On the day off, Jesse really made me feel comfortable, went above and beyond and ensured that all I had in mind was done! I had a breeze at this photo shoot. Turnover was quick as well. I’d definitely recommend working with Jesse 100%! Highly recommended. :)

Jesse was extremely responsive and helpful right from the time I originally reached out looking for a photographer. I wanted to give my parents family photos for Christmas, and we are very pleased with the results! Our experience was extremely positive, and I highly recommend giving him a try!
