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.

Right Thing

I had been gone a month when I arrived back in Carthage. The Building that housed my studio was still there, the key still worked, all good signs. The following day after my arrival I opened the doors with a new attitude, new enthusiasm, and the realization that I had it made. I could do what ever I needed to do to make the studio work. The paper ran a few articles, the local TV stations had me on, and I had created a multi-image slide show that I showed throughout the 4 states to different schools and organizations. The business didn't go away, it increased. Yes, it was the right thing to do. I'll never forget what I saw, the people I met, and the images I captured. It opened doors for me that I didn't know existed.

In passing I received the image of yours truly while being interviewed for the Aha Moment in the Airstream. It was taken by Tom Gilbert from the Tulsa World......thanks Tom.
