About

It's "About" my viewer having a WOWGASM when looking at my  images!!

Being able to photograph a couple's special day or getting images of an athlete pushing to the edge of greatness has been one of my life's great joys. In addition to photographing sports, I have a passion for wildlife and nature photography. Like a kid in a candy store, I still get excited when I get that "sweet" shot, even with hundreds of weddings under my camera strap, even with more high school senior sessions than I care to count and even with the terabytes of sports and wildlife photographs I've shot over the years, it's still a great feeling when that shot "clicks"! Combining my 30+ years of photographic experience (10 years owner of a 2100 square foot studio with 2 full-time and 1 part time photographer) along with the enthusiasm for exceptional and unique photography produces a creative and natural photo style. I enjoy working with people and I truly appreciate and I'm honored to be able to create photographs that will be treasured and shared by generations to come...guess in a way, it's my version of immortality.

My images have been used in books and magazines and by such recognizable companies as Sports Illustrated, ESPN, CBS, NBC, MSN, Wall Street Journal, USA, New York Times, Good Morning America, ABC World News Tonight, PGA Tour, to name just a few. Besides photographing for myself and selling my images and services, I provide photos to the local media outlets, shoot for the Special Olympics, various wire services including Zuma Press-the world's largest independent press agency and wire service, CSM Images, and CBS Sports MaxPreps. See my images at the Associated Press. I'm is also the editor and designer of this website, so if you're having problems viewing, loading or have suggestions on any of these pages PLEASE let me know.

My indebtedness and eternal love go out to Lois & Ginger, without them none of this would be possible.
