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.

The Kite....

The wind is about to carry off all of Tulsa and it reminded me that I promised to show you the kite that the Japanese kite maker made on the floor of the Palestine hotel where we stayed in Baghdad. as I said in my original post of several days ago he gave this to me as we went through customs at Norita Airport in Tokyo in 1995.

He drew it all freehand in ink with brushes. No sketching, he just started and drew it. This is one of my most prized pieces of art because of the art its self and the story behind it. He also asked for my passport, I gave it to him, and he drew the face of God in it to protect me on future journeys. That image follows soon.
