About Dylan

It was in a dark room...

It was in a dark room that Dylan fell in love with photography. After years of Polaroids and point-and-shoots, Dylan manually rolled and developed film and his hands smelled like fixer for months.

That experience and a fantastic old-school photography teacher solidified this love of capturing moments and developing them for Dylan, who then spent over ten years exploring digital photography as a hobby.

Then, the requests started coming in. "How much would you charge to do senior portraits?" With no solid answer to this question, Dylan fell into this on-and-off side business. After a few years of climbing the corporate ladder (ugh), he decided to pursue photography full time in a blind move of passion.

Dylan has photographed seniors, engagements, couples, kids, real estate, drag queens, musicians, products, nudes and boudoir, and business headshots. Amid the variety and desire to explore new ventures, there has always been a passion to push the envelope and explore a sex-positive, body-positive, LGBTQ-centric perspective in his work.

The goal Dylan has in all his sessions is to balance a desire for quality in the end result, and having a good f&$*#@! time doing it.


Dylan is a Seattle-based portrait photographer passionate about social justice, the male form, and finding the right time each day to switch from iced coffee to whiskey.
