Editorial Photography & Writing

News, sports, travel: Editorial work was my primary profession for 20+ years, with 15 years as a photographer and photo editor for The Associated Press. Not only can I capture a unique story in images, but I can do so with words as well. I have a degree in Journalism from Texas A&M.

Sports has been a mainstay of my editorial work. I’ve photographed sports at all levels, ranging from Little League, high school, and college sports, to Super Bowls, World Series, and Olympic Games. Examples of my Sports photography can be viewed in the Sports Gallery


All types of portrait photography including family, individual, seniors, engagement, and professional, in natural outdoor, home, or studio backdrop environments. Please look at the Portraits Gallery for examples of my portraiture.

Corporate & Event Photography

Corporate publication needs (e.g., annual report, corporate communications, web, etc.), recognition events, performances, fund-raising events, etc. Customers include: Diane’s School of Dance, FusionStorm, HGST (formerly Hitachi Global Storage Technologies), IBM Corp., North Bay Children’s Center, and others. Based in Kansas City, I can easily travel worldwide for assignments. Examples of corporate and event photography may be viewed in the Events & Performances Gallery.

Photo Editing

A professional newsphoto editor at the Associated Press for eight years, I have the ability to select the image -- or images -- from hundreds or thousands that best convey the story, and then edit those for the greatest impact.  I have edited major events ranging from earthquakes, to the World Series and the Olympic games.  I can meet all your corporate image editing needs.

Photography & Photo Editing Education

Have a great DSLR and can’t get past that magic green [A]? Or, are you comfortable with your camera and photos of your family, friends, and pets, but looking to take your photography to the next level? I’ve taught countless photographers of all levels and ages how to get the most from their photography, from a theory, technique, and technical perspective.

But, shooting is only half of the equation. What do you do with thousands of photos you’ve captured? How do you effectively manage and protect your growing digital image collection? How do you edit your digital images to become beautiful photography on the walls of your home or in treasured family albums and photo books, instead of relegated to the folders of a computer’s hard drive? I’ve taught many the best practices for digital image collection management and workflow, as well as top-notch image editing skills.

Photo Scanning and Restoration Services

Do you have treasured family photos that are tattered, torn, stained, faded? Those photos can be scanned in high resolution and quality, and then restored with amazing results, often revealing never-before-seen details. Before and after examples of restorations can be seen in the Restorations Gallery below.
