- 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.

In shooting sports photography, it's always important to remember that sports comes in many different forms. It's not always just Cincinnati Reds, Little League sports photograph's or football. In this case it's snowmobiling and this time it's in the Northern Rockies in Montana.
Cropping played a major factor in this photograph. The picture was a horizontal view, but as I studied it even more, the decision to go vertical with the crop made all the difference.
Part of making a great sports photograph, is done after the shot is taken. Too many aspiring Sports Photographers, at least in the Cincinnati and Dayton Ohio markets, simply upload 500 frames to a hosted site and force their customers to sort through hundreds of images to find a picture worth buying.
The worst thing about that, for the photographer, is that it becomes a portfolio of their work.
