While attending USC in Los Angeles for three years ’83-’85 on a baseball scholarship,I majored in photojournalism.At that time,I got hands-on experience in the art and craft of photography,shooting for the “Daily Trojan”,our college newspaper,and a small rock n’ roll magazine in Los Angeles. While baseball became my occupation for over two decades, photography remained my great passion.
Beginning with my first summer vacation in 26 years in 2010,I shot motorsports,concerts,people & places. I’ve been privileged to take seven USO tours to visit our men and women who serve our Country. Iraq, Kuwait, Okinawa, Cuba, South Korea, Italy, Afghanistan, Africa and Germany (God Bless Our Troops!). I’ve also been a contributing photographer for major media outlets with many photos featured in Stars And Strips Magazine, Rolling Stone Magazine, Spin Magazine, Metal Hammer Magazine, Score Baseball Card Company, AOL Online. Also have been on the road with several friends working to capture moments on stage to have them used in Tour Programs, Posters, T-shirts, Books, CD booklets and band Web-Sites.
As much as I enjoyed the thrill of pitching a perfect game and winning a World Series, I get similar satisfaction from using my photography skills to try and capture that defining moment in time.
The ride has been great,but is far from done. I look forward to seeing places I’ve never visited and shooting things I’ve never seen. Always shooting with my Good-Eye closed.
