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.

As the Eaton, Ohio Little League season gets ready to kick into full gear, I was looking back at some of my photos from last year, whaen I came across this gem. In my opinion, one of the things that sets a good youth sports photographer apart from the picture takers that post up every frame that they shoot, with no editing or cropping, to their web sites, is having an "Eye" for the unusual and unexpected.

I was shooting Eaton Little League Tee-Ball one Saturday, and I noticed that this little girl had stopped on 1st and 2nd to adjust her hat so it was "just right".

I was rewarded with this picture when she hit 3rd. It may not be an action shot, but it is typical of the innocence of little league. Shot with a Nikon D200, 1/250 at F8.
