About Me

You are the Diamond in the Rough! The Gem!

"Win/Win and help others" is my motto.

Photography is my passion! So I'll do my best to help you get
where you want to go with your portfolio. I'm honored to work
with you!

Please Note: I am accepting relatively few friend requests these days, so no
need to feel neglected if yours isn't accepted. I'm sure many other photograhers
will.


I majored in communication and journalism at Cornell University.

Credit Notes

I'm passionate about my work.
I started with a Canon Cannonette
gifted to me by my father in the 1980's, when
I began filming sporting events and nature along
the California Coast and Lake Tahoe and Yosemite
Valley -- professional surfing, skiing, football, basketball,
professional golf, and college swimming water polo.

      More recently I've been asked to take portraits
and photograph weddings and political events. Photographed
two presidents, numerous confressman, Mayors, Governors,
and others

  To accomplish the very best results, I occasionally
team up with other photographers. I've found
that our clients appreciate the amazing photos
that are the result of careful attention to the
use light, shutter speed and f-stop, plus,
careful planning, amazing locations, and
decades of  experience.

or TFP. I hope we can help build one anothers
Portfolios - A Win/Win!
