About Me

My photo
Monroe, Ohio, United States
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.

Self Sportrait

I had the opportunity to be on the opposite end of the lens the other night in Chicago at Efflin Stadium, home of the Kane County Cougars, the Single A affiliate of MLB's Oakland A's

I've been blessed to carve out a nice career in Amway since 1991 and became an Emerald about 10 years ago. I've also been fortunate enough to be on the team of Amway Double Diamond, Joe Markiewicz. As a result of that affiliation, we have had the opportunity to do many cool events, that we would have never even come close to doing in the normal hum drum 9-5 life as an employee.

We began renting out Nashville's Greer Stadium 10 years ago and suiting up to play, not softball, but actual baseball, complete with pitchers, catchers and umpires.

Along the way I've had the experience of hitting 6 home runs, catching a few 9 inning games and living out a dream.

I've also rented out University of Cincinnati's Marge Schott stadium a few times for my local team in Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Louisville.

I had a good friend of mine shoot this one so that I could do a little selective color work on myself.
