Spencer is a photographer based in Sacramento, California. He creates his best work shooting projects that tell a story of life lived a bit beyond the ordinary.

In the summer of 2017 he walked approximately 1200 miles down the coastline of California, never knowing where he would sleep from day to day, or where his next shower or hot meal would come from. 

The experiences gained from a summer living differently affected his work significantly. He aims to never take a photograph that doesn't share truth in  some way.

He has created work for New Balance Running + The Norcal Distance Project, Andis Wines, Insight Coffee Roasters and more.

If you would like to talk to Spencer about shooting a project, he'd love to hear from you.
