About Me

My photo

Opened my first Studio in 1972, after graduating with my Masters Degree in Photography, which followed a B.F.A. from Missouri State. It's been a great career that has taken me all over the world on assignments, and I've had the pleasure of working for some of the finest companies on product, annual report, and commercial assignments.

I spent one month in The Peoples Republic of China in 1987 representing Eastman Kodak
and their film capabilities to the Chinese professionals. In 1990 I documented the retrieval of Japanese Hostages held by the Iraqi's in Baghdad just before Desert Storm by the American Group called "Peace Wave".

I have also had the distinct pleasure of meeting some of the finest people from all walks of life due to my profession. I love my work personal imagery.

Commercial assignments..

I really enjoy the commercial side of the photographic profession. All jobs are different,in challenging locations, and always have a problem to solve. It may be the lighting, background treatment, amount of equipment needed to make the image, some of what may be specialized, or something that is unique to my vision and experience. I have found that people view all things differently generally based on their familiarity with the item. The first impression I get is seemingly always tied up with texture and color, then shape. The longer I am around an item the more I can understand it as to its function, but the first impression will almost always lead me to the final image. Of course this is also tied into the desire of the client as to what the image should say to the viewer.
