- 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.

$2100.00 worth of softball bats, resting up against a dugout fence. The average cost of these bats is $300 each. I was shooting sports photography at the Cincinnati Softball Metro Tournament in 2008. While looking around for gallery fodder, I noticed all the colors of the bats lying in the dugout. I simply grabbed all of them, arrainged them in the color order I desired and snapped a few pictures for the portfolio.
I am always looking for images of the game that I can use for featured photographs in my galleries. I have revisited this technique many times in little league, girls softball, mens softball etc.
"Picture takers" never do this type of work Photographers on the other hand are always looking for the unusual.
