- 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.

Cincinnati Reds, Brandon Phillips
I could have titled this one "A Swing and a Spit"
While shooting Cincinnati Reds Sports Photographs, I was obviously in a very good location to get this unusual shot of Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips as he took a mighty swing and came up short.
There is a lot of Major League Baseball & Sports Photography that is anticipation and timing, and then there is just plain luck. When shooting Cincinnati Reds photography, I will typically take a 16mg chip and shoot more than 500 photographs a game. With that number, you're bound to get lucky once in a while.
