About me…..Never easy to talk about yourself……First off, I am a Husband. I have been married for over 25 years. I have two fantastic kids that are 24 and 30. I am a father, dad and as of last year a first-time Grandpa!. I have been through all the typical things that life throws at us. First day of kindergarten, high school graduations, first dates, “The Talk”, proms, break-ups, engagements, youth sports, high school sports, all day dance recitals and volleyball tournaments. Moments we all cherish. I would never change a thing!!
I have been involved with photography since about 1980. My first year of High School. I loved taking pictures at the high school sporting events and learned to develop the film and print the pictures in the darkroom. I began selling cameras at a camera store. I then opened a photography studio and began taking things more serious. We traveled to different advertising agencies around Detroit and showed our portfolio to art directors. We landed a few accounts and learned how to operate a business.
I became an assistant for a top end architectural photographer out of Detroit where I learned how the best become the best. We shot everything from multi-million dollar homes to stadiums. She was a perfectionist. This was all prior to the digital age and so there was no such thing as Photoshop. So I learned how to do things right, in camera, without relying on post production.
I jumped into the digital age and began shooting my kids playing sports. After paying an astronomical amount of money for my daughter’s senior pictures (they were absolutely beautiful). I put my plan into action to shoot my sons pictures when it was his time. Once his pictures were done, I began to receive inquiries. And the rest you can say, is history.
