Detailed ... is one way to describe my photography. My desire to capture the poignent moments as only a photojournalist can helps me to focus on the details that make each wedding and each person so special.
Native ... is the best way to describe my relationship with Kansas -- I was born and raised right here in the Sunflower State.
Kansas, Michigan and Colorado ... are all places I've worked as a newspaper photojournalist. During a three and a half year stint at the Topeka Capital-Journal I photographed politicians, professional sports and everyday life. My photographs of the 2002 Kansas State University football season were compiled into a coffee table book in 2003.
President George W. Bush ... is one of the most prominent world leaders I've photographed -- three times.
Invaluable ... is how I feel about mentoring my "little brother." I continue to remain involved in the program because I believe it is important to be a positive role model for the youth of today.
Education ... is something I advocate for young photographers. This belief led me to participate and be published in "Visual Converstaions: Pictures of the Year 2005." I also believe in continuing education for professionals. In 2003, I had the honor to participate in the elite Eddie Adams workshop.
Groundhog ... is the newest trick my dog, Harley, has learned. She sits on her haunches and intently looks at my wife, Angie, and I while we eat meals.
