Beginning of a career.

On one of the last days of 1996, I picked up my first digital camera at a local Comp USA. The camera was fairly large, very slow, and used floppy disks for film, but I was hooked. I came to work for an event production company connected to the PGA Tour after a few years of living in Phoenix. Through this opportunity, I made several connections with several large events in town such as the Phoenix Open, Barrett Jackson. and the Insight Bowl.

Continued experience.

I have covered numerous PGA/LPGA tour events, college bowl games, fashion shows, the Super Bowl, Celebrity fight night, and more. For the past 20 years, I has fully devoted my attention and skills towards the art of photography. I believe that my uncanny, “second nature,” sense of composition and understanding of light, delivers technically great photos. It is my unique understanding and real-world experiences together with “heart and soul” that takes this visual medium to the level of true art that many photographers aspire to, but seldom achieve.

Love for the job

Covering golf and college football bowl games as a photographer makes you think quickly on your feet, adapt to changing light and angles, and be comfortable shooting in the hot sun, in the pouring rain, or on the red carpet. Covering fashion shows, believe it or not, presents similar challenges, especially when attempting a more subtle, less in-your-face, photojournalistic approach. It is possible to run into me without a camera. I am an avid golfer, I enjoy billiards, sand volleyball, Texas Holdem, and spend much too much money expanding my own private golf memorabilia collection. My photos have been published on numerous websites and in publications from all over the country and I continue to gain relationships through my work.
