About Me

My photo
Monroe, Ohio, United States
Began my photography career as most people do...the highschool yearbook. Upon graduation I attended the US Naval Photography School in Pensacola Fla. After getting a qualification in basic photography and then later attending their Portrait School,was assigned to a military operation. Experiences included USO photography for Bob Hope, Brooke Shields, Kathy Lee Crosby and Wayne Newton.Have also had the opportunity for travel assignments to places such as Beruit, Israel, Africa, Australia, Brazil, Italy, Spain and England. Upon exiting the Navy in 1984,opened up a Tanning Salon and Health Club in Oxford,Ohio and began photographing weddings, all as a vehicle to fund my way through college. I enjoy travel, sports photography, special event and Cincinnati Reds photography. I am frequently contracted as a sports photographer by parents, sports teams, and organizations,throughout the Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio areas, to provide the highest quality sports photography, both on an individual and team basis.

My son plays little league baseball in Monroe & Eaton, Ohio. Being a photographer means that he has been photographed close to 5000 times. One of the things I love about shooting little league shots, is the contrast of youthful innocence, combined with the rugged grit of America's past time. In this shot I was grabbing some shots of the Eaton Little League "Coach Pitch" division that is comprised of 7 & 8 year olds, and caught this little girl taking her turn at the catcher position. It crossed my mind that by the time I had edited this shot and posted it, she was probably playing with her dolls again.

  1. Gee, nothing like the sexist assumption that a little girl has nothing better to do with her time than to be playing with dolls. Not that I am against that by any means, but this little girl could have just as easily been out in the backyard playing football with her brothers, or at karate class at the time you were posting the picture. I'm just sayin'...
