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.

About the wedding....

I had posted some thoughts concerning an upcoming wedding up a couple of weeks ago and it was a great time. I've known the the Bride and Groom for a couple of years and I really enjoyed the day. When the couple booked me several months ago I was actually wondering how the occasion would go as they were planning an outdoor wedding........IN FEBRUARY !! In the event of snow, rain, wind, and all sorts of other weather options, they did plan to have a very large tent to fall back on. On wedding day Oklahoma skies came through for us as it was mildly overcast and around 60 degrees. PERFECT !

I had scouted out the location a week or so before the wedding so I would at least know something about what I was running into. I found the location, and met with the couple and finalized the shooting plans for the wedding. I always photograph the Bride and Groom together before the wedding as well as all of the other images I can, groups, table setting and cake. This allows me time to get the images without a pending reception rushing everything along. The plan looked good and I knew where to was good. On the wedding day, as I said, the environment cooperated and everything came off with out a hitch. The best part of the event was that I was able to shoot outside in available light which allowed be to have some very good illumination for the wedding portraits.

I always take a  background with me for the formal groups and individual images. I think it just gives a more professional set of images. This doesn't mean that I use it in every just gives me options that I wouldn't have otherwise. Below are a couple of images from the wedding.

It was a very good time and I was pleased with all of the images.
