I have been a photographer for most of my life since I was 11 years old. I grew up with film and darkrooms and contributed to school year books and news papers.

After my military service in Europe I furthered my photography career in portrait photography and studio work for Photo Corporation of America in Minnesota. I managed 7 studios there before an opportunity to move down under.

While in New Zealand I shot for news papers and magazines, did some fashion photography but shot mostly sports. I coordinated event photography for the biggest event photography company in Australia as well as shooting for other international organizations. I developed a stock photography web site in New Zealand called PhotoSales www.photosales.co.nz and became one of the foremost event photographers in New Zealand. While in New Zealand I have also completed a full year NZQA qualification in film and video production. I also completed a marketing course and love the challenge of putting my skills together to come up with awesome solutions.

I moved to Australia to be closer to my son and his family. They live in Ulladulla were I now have 3 grandsons. I figure one of them may want to learn photography so I should be a little closer then across the ditch…

I look forward to assisting you in any way I can.
