Hi, I am Travis.  I am an avid outdoor adventurer.  I love to hike, ski, camp, run, swim and bike.  I am pretty much a typical Colorado resident.  I live in the mountains with my family.  We have three kids, one dog, a Subaru, and a massive collection of skis (some useable) in our garage.  Any given day I would rather be hiking up a mountain rather than sitting at a desk.  When you hire Dramatic Focal Point, I am the person who will be there to work for you.  I am not a massive global photographic company.  Just a small, family owned, Colorado based business.

My love of photography began as a hobby in high school.  For 25 years since then, I have been developing my skills while perfecting my professional style. During my time behind the lens I worked in many different surroundings and extreme conditions.  My inherit ability to “anticipate a moment” has been sharpened while photographing The President of The United States, working with the captains from Discovery Channel’s The Deadliest Catch, and immortalizing musicians during Austin’s famous SXSW concerts.  While working in Washington, DC, I was afforded the wonderful learning experience of working under the award winning wedding photographers Lisa and Ian Robinson, owners of SoftBox Media Photography.  With their help I was able to broaden my portfolio and realize that I thoroughly enjoyed photographing stylish weddings.

In 2013 I moved to beautiful Colorado to begin a new phase in living my dream as a professional photographer and started Dramatic Focal Point.  Experience has taught me that important photographs should not be awkwardly staged. They should be candidly shot or comfortably posed using natural lighting and dramatic backgrounds.  I believe that a wedding photographer should not dictate how pictures are taken.  Instead should stay in the background to capture images from the client’s focal point. Relax and enjoy your special occasion knowing that your memories will be captured in brilliant Dramatic Focal Point pictures you will cherish for a lifetime.
