- 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.

The Pro Angle
I've learned a lot about sports photography, by looking at sports photographs. Weather it be Cincinnati Reds, Sports Illustrated, ESPN Magazine or news Papers.
I've said before, that the lazy sports photographers that post to sports photography web sites, merely stand in one spot, sit in one place or stand on the side lines with a mono pod and shoot the same angle.
In Sports Photography, this is what I call the Pro Angle. Lower than the eye's of the standing player, and coming down the slope of the mound to give that "flame thrower image.
While shooting little league baseball in Eaton, Ohio, I shot this pitcher on the Eaton Bee's getting ready to fire a blistering 45mph heater. But it looks a whole lot faster. Parents love these shots.
