I've been in the Film and TV business all my life. I started in Chicago at WLS / WDAI worked for Steve Dahl, moved to the Advertising industry doing TV commercials behind the camera, and then left advertising and did corporate TV for eight years. I went freelance in 1986.

Between 1986 and 2009, I toured with Aerosmith and worked on the OtherSide music video, I also toured with REM and did the Tour Films video. I've worked on other music video's with The B52's, Arrested Development,Confederate Railroad, Jars of Clay, TLC, Beyonce,and more.

I spent eight years at CNN, then worked for ABC,NBC,CBS,FOX,ESPN and spent two years on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. So, I have the experience to teach you anything that you need to know about photography and videography.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been working in Photoshop since version 1. This program requires copious amounts of practice, study, learning and time. An investment in study guides,on-line tutorials, practice videos and actual photo editing are required to master this program. Just when you think you know it all, you realize there is more to learn. The state I'm always in. just when you master version 6, version 7 is released.
