When growing up, my mother was the primary picture taker for family photos, but she almost always cut off people's heads when taking the picture. At the age of four or five the family’s Kodak ‘Brownie Instamatic’ camera was entrusted to my hands because of my success rate of not chopping off people's heads in the photo.
I got my first real camera, a Fuji ST801 SLR in 1971, and with that first click of the shutter, I was destined for a career in photography.
I started by shooting mostly portrait photography for relatives, neighbors and friends. When several of my friends and I started racing Motocross in 1972, I used the Fuji camera to capture action photos from track side with outstanding results. These images caught the eye of a fellow rider and through a Dallas newspaper I was issued a media credential. This opportunity to progress provided access to shoot photos at concerts and when the Dallas Cowboys moved in to Texas Stadium, I was often on the sideline shooting photos during the Landry years. The concert photos were fun but the challenge of sports photography got into my blood and it remains there today.
Photography has been my passion for decades, and after retiring with 33 years service in the field of telecommunications, today photography is my business. I still shoot collegiate and professional sports, but after more than 25 years of covering all high school sports, I find the enthusiasm and will to succeed expressed by these athletes very rewarding. And I love "Capturing Memories of a Moment in Time" ™
