- 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.

Sometimes the best youth sports photographs do not involve any real action, but rather capture the child in a candid moment during the flow of a game. I hear so many aspiring photographers gloat about that shat that catches the ball on the bat. While I also like those pictures, they come some where down the list for me. The focus of my attention is always the player and the eyes of the subject, but not posed and looking at me. I can take my kid to Glamour Shots for that.
This shot is good because of the contrast of youthful innocense and and the rugged look of the catchers mask...complete with the official logo of the Somoli Pirates of the Carribean
