Started in photography at the age of 21 working for a couple of companies till 1980. When I decided to go it alone, a hard decision at the time but the right one.

ALPE with the Wedding, Portrait, Photographers International along with a QEP the first to be awarded to a wedding photographer.
Photography to me is a way of life and not a job. I believe you have to be that way, as photography gets in your blood under your skin it becomes your life.
