Ed first discovered his passion for photography while traveling abroad after high school. It was on these travels that he discovered his love of visual narratives. This and his ability to communicate and his capacity for empathy - lead him to a career with publications such as The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Life, Newsweek, and National Geographic. He learned the value of simplicity and thoughtful storytelling while documenting everything from the Los Angeles riots to the immigration stories of Mexico.
Changes in the newspaper industry motivated Ed to explore a more commercial aesthetic. His photojournalistic experience remains a constant influence to his approach to portraiture as a means of storytelling. He now shoots portraits and narratives for annual reports, corporate, advertising, and editorial photography. His clients include MetWest, Target, USC, Wells Fargo, Valspar, and Veolia.
Currently, Ed lives in his native Los Angeles with his wife, daughter, and beagle.
When he is not working on photography he enjoys smoking a leisurely cigar, reading about astrophysics, and camping with his family.
