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, working both jobs until I graduated from high school in 1962 and joined the army to see the world. In 1965 I finished my military service and returned to Kentucky as a portrait and wedding photographer in Kentucky and Tennessee. Making my first connections with the music industry and photographing celebrities.

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.

Yes, It’s me setting up to photograph the Governor of Arizona in the late 1960’s

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.
