Hey I'm Becker

I'm on a mission to live up to the best version of myself. Every single day I strive to be a better husband, a better father, a better friend, a better provider, a better leader, and a healthier, happier, human being.

The only person I compete with is the person I was yesterday.

My Family

I didn't become a dad or get married until later in life... I was 41 when Audrey was born, 42 when Ashley and I got married, and 44 when Aria came along. My girls are my world and I love being a family man! Edited to add... We have a boy! Austin Christopher joined the crew in March 2021 (I was 47).

More About Me

Placeholder Image

From SoCal to STL 

I spent the first 40 years of my life living in Southern California (mostly in South OC).

I moved the the St. Louis area in the summer of 2014 and now live about 30 miles west of the Arch in the city of O'Fallon.

I miss my friends and family, and the lovely SoCal weather, but I don't miss the insane traffic, outrageous cost of living, or the high taxes.

Burning Becker

Just about every summer I head to Burning Man to relax, recharge, and to get inspired.

It's hard to explain what Burning Man is all about, or why it means so much to me, but you can check out my Burning Man gallery here: (#NSFW)

My Personal Motto

This is a photo of my journal from 2013 and still holds true today.

My goal is to never stop learning and growing and I want to help others do the same.

This applies to both my work and my personal life.

I'm an Acquired Taste

I realized in high school that I had the kind of personality that people either loved or hated.

At first it bothered me, then I was okay with it, now I embrace it.

I realized a long time ago that I couldn't please everyone so I simply stopped trying and now I sleep so much better!

I Met a Girl

August 21, 2011 I found myself in St. Louis to speak at a local photography convention. One of the attendees asked if she could get a photo with me. Yadda, yadda yadda... we're happily married with 3 happy, healthy kiddos.

Favorite Photo I've Ever Taken?

It's ironic that as a professional photographer, just about my favorite photo that I've ever taken was shot on an iPhone. Audrey was 10 months old when Ashley and I got married and needed some milk on the way to the ceremony.

President Reagan

In February 1993, President Reagan went for a ride on the Goodyear Blimp for his 82nd birthday. I worked at a photo lab back then and my boss at the time did publicity photos for Goodyear so I got to tag along on the shoot. We photographed him shaking hands with all of the executives and the blimp crew. When it was my turn for a photo, his hands were full so he just put his arm around me. I was 19 at the time. I still carry a physical print of this image in my wallet (the only one) and it has gotten me out of several speeding tickets over the years.

Pope John Paul II

Back in 2003, I photographed an intimate wedding at the Vatican. The wedding was December 27th, so we had to head over a few days early to get adjusted to the time difference. We went to midnight mass at St. Basil's cathedral where the Pope presided over the mass. It was an incredible experience and I snapped this image as he came down the center aisle of the church as the service began.
