About me

I am a career photojournalist.

Stints at three daily newspapers and more than ten years of freelancing have provided experience in shooting almost every situation conceivable.

Memberships in the National Press Photographers Association and the American Society of Media Photographers allow me to rub elbows with and pick the brains of some of the best news and commercial photographers in the business.

Career highlights include shooting the Final Four, the Super Bowl, multiple Cincinnati Reds spring trainings, and U. S. presidents from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush. But the most important was telling the stories of the people who live in the communities where I worked. They are featured in my galleries.

In addition to shooting, I taught photojournalism and studio and location lighting at the University of Cincinnati, Antonelli College and Northern Kentucky University.

I'm a visual problem-solver.

Tell me your story and I'll create the images to tell that story. Stills and/or video. With sound. 

Deadlines motivate me. If you need it shot tomorrow, call me. If you need it delivered the next day, or even the same day, I'm your guy.

My direct line is 513-919-1213.
