- 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.

Left Handed Catcher
When covering a youth sports event, a photographer has to have the paitience of a good Texas Holdem player in waiting for the good shot. It is rare that you see a left handed catcher and I wanted to grab a really good picture of this kid, who had good athletisism and technique.
In the youth little league game in Eaton, Ohio, I had to shoot the catcher for nearly 2 innings before I captured a good action shot of him. I couldn't get around the background distraction, but his parents really loved the shot.
My angle on this shot is from knee high with my monopod, from the 3rd base dugout.
