Not a lot of pictures, Fine Photography.

It’s senior portrait season, take a look at my work, it’s refined! My 30 years in the field photographing, industry leaders, or your son or daughter shows!  Often, I am not anymore expensive than those with just months of ‘experience.’

Relationships

My work is always about the play of light, but light maters not if the spirit of the relationship is lost.  This brother and sister have been visiting the studio around New Year’s Day for a couple years now.

The Year of Sport

I studied by the side of Phil Masturzo, a great sport photographer, and the two of us studied under James Gordon; a legendary all around photojournalist and professor at Bowling Green State University.  Golf may not be the most exciting sport to cover. My daughter plays, so I found myself in the role of father and team photographer.  Kate Schmuck an exchange student from Munich played some excellent golf for Lafayette Jefferson in the fall of 2016, at the ready I made one of the best sports images of my career and one that professor Gordon and my friend Phil would be pleased with.

My son is a student at Butler University, I hadn’t photographed basketball since my days as a stringer for the Associated Press.  I took a turn on the baseline to keep the old skills sharpened.

Medical Center, Day in the Life

I am often called on to make images to explain medicine, and to help educate and ease anxiety for patients.  Sometime the images are also used for community building on a large campus.
