Starry skies, sagebrush, and endless red rock trails drew me West from Knoxville, Tenn. And after earning accolades in journalism, I picked up a camera a decade ago to accompany the pen in telling more evocative and cohesive narratives.
That story-driven approach stuck. Now, I use craftsmanship and artistry to create visually-compelling imagery and videos for commercial and editorial clients in Salt Lake City, Utah, and beyond. Let's find out why we'd be a good fit for each other.
Whether we're on location or in the studio, I'll listen to your needs, and with experience and skill, deliver more. I believe tactical mastery allows for creative spontaneity, while a powerful story is at the heart of every inspiring image.
"Austen brings a storytelling mindset to every shoot. He hustles to get the right backdrop, the right lighting, and the right composition. And he even helped source diverse, authentic models. He shot everything from local-legend portraits to alpine landscapes, and his creative photographs brought every story to life. I can't recommend Austen highly enough."
"Austen has an impeccable eye and is very creative. I can give him a vague description of what I'm hoping to achieve with a photo shoot or project, and he will always find a way to make the end results shine. His work has helped build our brand, and our website is more eye-catching because Austen helped us to create great art for our audiences."
"I trust Austen to understand the vision and goals for each project and deliver a sharp, stellar product that I can use in varied applications. He’s professional, precise, and delivers on time and in budget. Plus, he’s easy to work with and buttoned up with business protocols, but fun and engaging."
