Tyler took an interest in photography for its ability to render life as he sees it. Self taught, he has been inspired by such artists as Annie Leibovitz, Jim Fiscus and Dave Hill. Over the past seven years, Tyler's style has become a convergence of hyper-reality and the surreal. Tyler took his first clients on at the start of high school with senior portraiture, but soon realized that commercial work allowed him to express his passion for aesthetics on a greater scale.
Tyler has worked with Indiana University- Purdue University on Athletics portraits, various recording studios on musician's albums, and commercial ad campaigns such as A|N|I Shoes.
