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.

Busy Summer to say the least.....

Sorry I've neglected you, I've been up to my ears in work and creating a new backyard complete with several locations for portraits. It's been fun, somewhat costly, but will reap great rewards for my clients and my leisure time. As a matter of fact, my first Senior Portrait session is this Wednesday signaling the opening of the 2014-15 Senior Portrait season. It will be a great time. Some portrait samples are soon to follow.

The additions I've made have enhanced the wildlife population in the backyard too. We have a marked increase in Dragonflies, birds, a couple of squirrels, and a tribe of rabbits. I eliminated a hill which I have hated for the last twelve years, enlarged and relocated the Koi pond 16 fold, and added 16 new fish. The decks are two levels with a total of three. They are in the shade from early morning till 11:00, then back in the shade from 3:00 on. They are a photographers delight. You'll see results sometime toward the end of the week.

I have more plans for another addition to the design that I'll show you when I get that part done. Hopefully it will be completed in three weeks, weather permitting. Here are a couple of shots of our new friends that are starting to hang around. Stay tuned for the upcoming addition.....
