For more than fifty years I have photographed families, weddings and special events across the United States. In 2010 I retired in San Antonio, Texas.
I started my career in Owensboro, Kentucky in 1959 as a 15 year old apprentice photographer for a local portrait studio and as the night photographer for the Owensboro Messenger Inquirer Newspaper.
I graduated from high school in 1962 and joined the army to see the world. In 1965 I finished my service and returned to Kentucky, doing freelance photography to pursue a photographic career.
In 1967 I moved to Houston, Texas to photograph for the Paul Gittings Studio. There I photographed families, weddings, governors, astronauts, and corporate executives all across the southwest.
In 1970 I began on my own photographing throughout the south and southwest and occasionally the east and west coast. Since the beginning, I have been a photographer specializing in portraits and weddings, but that’s not all I did. Through my exclusive portrait clientele I have photographed politicians, celebrities, actors, musical artist, stage productions and music concerts. I have created photographs for annual reports, music album covers, books and magazines. I have photographed vintage and new guitars for Martin, Gibson, Guild, and Gruhn Guitars. The list goes on and on.
It’s been a good life and I appreciate all my mentors, clients and friends.
