I've been a professional photographer for 43 years. I shot all black & white film from 1976 til 1985. I began shooting color slides for the Orange County Register (Santa Ana, Ca) in 1985. Other newspapers where I was a staff photographer includes the Bloomington Pantagraph (Bloomington, Il), The State Journal Register (Springfield, IL) and The National (Los Angeles, CA). I've been freelancing since 1992 and currently reside in Dripping Springs, TX with my wife, my 17 year old daughter, my Golden Retriever Holly and our cats Andie, Ginger, and Buster.
