- 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.

Not every youth sports picture to take, has to be of Cincinnati Reds or Sports Illustrated quality. Case in point...I was shooting Friday night little league as the sun was setting and I notices that the catcher in this picture would always sccop a little dirt into his mitt before each pitch to create a little explosion with each pitch.
I lined up my angle so that the black backdrop would frame up his glove and the sun would backlight the sibject.
After motor driving through about 6 pitches I got a keeper. It's a little "noisy" for my taste, but a fan favorite none the less.
