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.

Opposite Field

During the Summer, I have carved out a nice little niche shooting kids sports photography, specificly, little league baseball. Parents love seeing their little superstars in a "Sports Illustrated" quality photo. In this picture, I am the parent as my son Zachary, playing in Eaton, Ohio Little League, goes the opposite way as a left handed hitter. I set up on the first base line and used a Nikon D200, Nikkor 80-200 2.8 lens and 1/1600th of a second shutter.

A great deal of Sports Photography is about anticipation and understanding the flow of the game. My son,Zachary who is 10, will be playing in both the Monroe and Eaton Little League's this year.
