About Me

I’m an IT Manager by day, but have been spending a lot of time with photography during weekends, evenings, and vacation time. I got started shooting photos in high school and really enjoyed shooting sports more than anything. I’ve studied with 3 fantastic teacher / mentors over the past few years:

Sport Photography
Peter Read Miller of Sports Illustrated
Peter has been working for Sports Illustrated for over 20 years and has over 200 covers to his credit. Needless to say, he knows what makes a good Sports photograph.

Wedding and Portrait Photography
Bob & Dawn Davis
They’ve done work for Eva Longoria, Tyler Perry, Forest Whitaker and Oprah. A great couple and great supporters and mentors.

HDR Photography
Michael James - Digital Coast Photography.
Michael specializes in Real Estate photography, but has a ton of valuable information to share in regards to photography in general and HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography in particular.

I now enjoy shooting sports, people, and am currently excited about HDR Panoramas. The technical side of photography interests me the most, probably why my latest favorite photos are HDR Panoramas.

I am a member of the International Virtual Reality Photographer’s Association and am registered on SportsShooter.com.
