I have built an extensive
portfolio and client list since becoming a photojournalist over
15 years ago. My career began at a small, central California
newspaper in 1983 where I was a staff photographer. Many years
and several newspapers later, I achieved the position of Photo
Editor with the Sacramento (CA) Bee. In 1998, I left the Bee
and embarked upon a career as a freelance photojournalist. Click here for the details.
My client list has included
Associated Press, Agence France-Presse,
Reuters, TASS and
United Press International news agencies; Gamma-Liaison and Sygma
picture agencies; Atlanta Constitution, Los Angeles Times, New
York Times, Portland Oregonian, San Francisco Chronicle and USA
Today newspapers; Forbes, Time, and USA Weekend magazines, as
well as a variety of corporate and special interest publications.
If I had to choose a type
of photography to pursue exclusively in my career it would be
travel photography, as I have a great love of the open road.
I've visited over 30 countries around the globe, many of them
in the Third World. The happy consequences of this wanderlust
is that my file of travel images currently numbers nearly 3,000.
Though I can't recall exactly how or
when I first considered photography as a career, I've always
been the photographer in my family and for that I have to thank
my father. You see, Dad is famous for cutting off the tops of
people's heads in photos. We have boxes and boxes of pictures
of me, my brothers and Mom with no heads above the eyebrows.
Needless to say, Mom didn't appreciate Dad's unique way of seeing.
So it was my job to take the photos and keep the camera away
from Dad who never really understood what the fuss was about....
