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.

Ramping up

Saturday again, last of the old week and start of a new one tomorrow. I have decided that Monday and Tuesday I'm going to do some cold calling with my portfolio and see what happens.The generation of new business is crucial to survival in this market. The digital revolution has, in all outward appearances, taken away the necessity of knowledge i.e. F stops, shutter speeds and their relationships with the finished images, and the thought of previsualization. I find that a truly a shame. The quality of imagery as the average commercial client sees it has taken a real hit. Photoshop can't make up for poor photography, the computer note of Garbage in Garbage out still exists.

Cold calls are always interesting...I'll keep you posted.
