My Story

 In January 1980 I quit my job at an animal hospital to  follow my dream of becoming a professional photographer. My first  photography job had me going door to door to take baby pictures!

Over the years I went down a photographic road that drove me to do all kinds of photography… photojournalism, weddings, sports, model portfolios, families & children, parties, schools, pets and more! A million clicks and 34 years later, I’m still going strong!

I’m Laid back, Very Funny, Really Nice, and Extremely Cool. Need an experienced photographer or just want to hear some corny jokes?

Call me, we’ll talk.
