- 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.

I don't like to use it very often, but on occasion it makes sense and creates a nice photograph.
On this occasion I was asked by a private client to shoot a couple of creative pictures of her daughters after Lifetouch Studios had did their usual mass production snap shot session at Monroe High School.
I had just a few minutes to grab a couple of shots of her daughters who happen to be cheerleaders for the Hornets.
I was faced with a very harsh cross light from the October sun and a bunch of clutter in the background that I didn't want to spend 12 hours trying to clean up.
So in this picture I used selective color to draw all attention to the girls and the big blue M that dots the Monroe football field 50 yard line.
After looking at it a few times, I realized that I messed up the girl on the rights hair, but the over all effect was just what the Mom was looking for.
In my sports photography, I will often consider the selective color option in just such conditions.
