- 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.

Cincinnati Reds Opening Day
One of my favorite days of the year. Opening day for Major League Baseball and the Cincinnati Reds. I've only went to one opening day. In 2003, my friend Dave Fallat and I went to the very first game at Great American Ball Park, to commemorate me becoming a newly qualified Emerald in Amway. Dave had went Emerald the year before. Today was a great example of why I usually don't like to go...37* at the start of the game. Cold, wet, damp and a 2-1 loss at the hands of the Mets. The Cincinnati Red's are now on pace to lose 160 games.
