- 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.

Down the Line
Saturday August 8th, had me providing sports photography coverage for the Cincinnati Metro Softball tournament.
This was one of the top sports photos of more than 600 shot on this muggy August afternoon.
Good sports photography is a lot about timing and anticipation as well as luck. I had noticed that the one team in particular was pulling a lot of balls down the 3rd base line. I positioned myself on one knee and focused on the 3rd baseman.
It took about 5 batters but I finally got the fish that I had been casting the line for.
I use Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses for clarity and high shutters speed for all of my sports photography.
