- 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.

I'm asked quite often, if I have field passes that enable me to get these incredible pictures at a Major League Baseball Game. The answer is no. I do put myself into a very good postion by buying very good tickets and I don't skimp on my glass.
The best investment a photographer who wants to shoot good youth sports photography can make, after a 10mp camera, is not in an additional 1-2 MP's but in a razor sharp 80-200 2.8 lens. My lens of choice has been the Nikkor 80-200 2.8.
In this "walking on air" picture of future Hall of Famer "Pudge", I was sitting in row one of the Detroit Tiger dugout seats.
