Central California raised,
Russell grew roots within the central California surf culture and decided he'd never leave, and would pick up a camera while he was at it.
Russell is instilled with the strong belief that our artistic perspective is formed and shaped by our individual experiences, it’s what we as humans cling to in order to decipher what unfolds in front of us and allows us to each see with different eyes.
Being the son, grandson, and brother to architects, Russell was raised around the appreciation for visual aesthetic and design but broke the mold.
His life and work revolve around hunting those moments and letting them be just that: a split-second in time we will never get back, but instead have a photograph that will remind us that it was really was as good as we remembered it to be.
Russell currently resides in San Luis Obispo, CA but can be found photographing projects worldwide.
