I am a freelance commercial photographer in Wichita, Kansas. I was a staff photographer for the Wichita Eagle for 20 years, and two years at the Herald, in Jasper, Indiana. I am a graduate of Kansas State University and a Kansas native, from Augusta. I married my high school sweetheart, Laura, and we have two wonderful children, Erin and Zach and a spoliled yellow lab, Buddy.

I love what I do, I love photography and I feel very lucky that I get to make a living using my camera. My goal on all of my shoots is to tell a story with my images, something that I was trained to do and I am passionate about in my work. My newspaper background has given me a foundation to react, create and succeed in difficult photography situations. As a commercial photographer I still use those skills to make sure my clients get exactally what they want from the work I am giving them.
