- 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.

Cute kids and your portfolio
I've always believed that if you want to create a great portfolio of youth sports shots, you need a lot of cute kids. Now granted, all kids are cute...to someone...but not to everybody. When putting a portfolio together, make sure you get a bunch of those adorable little tykes on the first few pages. I have a friend who is a pretty good wedding photographer. The problem is, that most of the people who hire her, are...well lets say they won't be on America's Next Top Model. Now that doesn't make them any less special, but this photographer posts some of the most "snaggle toothed" brides and grooms on the landing page, that I've ever seen. This in turn, diminishes the quality of her work.
This little cutie was playing in a Tee Ball game in Eaton, Ohio and made for a great portfolio picture.
