While attending college, I enrolled in an introductory photography class. The teacher, an award-winning newspaper photographer with charm and charisma, caught my attention. The next day before class, I bought a newspaper, and found a picture with his name credited under it. I was hooked! I went home that afternoon and proclaimed to anyone who would listen that I had found my calling in life.
Working as a newspaper staff photographer for over 30 years, I put the same energy and professionalism into every assignment given. Every subject I photographed, no matter how big or small the story was, I was compelled to deliver a picture to my editors that was worthing of getting a reader’s attention.
My career at the Chicago Sun-Times sadly ended abruptly due to budget concerns, so it was time to pivot. In recent years, I have been able to utilize my photojournalism skills and apply them to weddings, events, portraits and nature photography.
