I'm a professional photographer in central West Virginia, probably best known for my work with high school seniors. My main focus with each client is to deliver unique images that will really showcase the senior's personality, hobbies, interests, etc in a way that makes people see the photos and say "that is SO you". Aside from my senior clients, I also work with hundreds of athletes each year from youth sports, high school, college and every once in a great while, professionals.
I really do love what I do. Obviously, I love working with my seniors and athletes, and that's what I've chosen to focus on, but there are a few other things I really enjoy and I've had the opportunity to do cover some really cool assignments during my time working with newspapers and magazines.When I was with the Ironton Tribune in southern Ohio, I had the opportunity to cover some Bengals games and photographed some of the greats between the home team and visitors — Brett Favre, Chad (Johnson) Ochocinco, Carson Palmer, Tom Brady, Troy Brown, Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, Jerome Bettis, LaDainien Tomlinson, Terrell Owens, Eddie George and my all-time personal favorite player, Deion Sanders. I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting but that's a quick list.
In my last year with the Herald-Dispatch, I got to cover the Huntington Highlanders epic season highlighted by star players Patrick Patterson and OJ Mayo. Not sure I'll ever witness another high school team like that. They were both chosen to play in the McDonald's All-American game in Louisville, Ky. and joined a phenomenal lineup of talent that included Kevin Love and Blake Griffin. Getting to shoot that game is also up there in my all-time favorites.
I don't want to leave out the time I covered a Reds game against the visiting San Fransisco Giants, so I got to shoot Ken Griffey, Jr, Barry Larkin and Barry Bonds all in the same game.
