I have been a photographer for almost 30 years. Digital for almost 20... After winning the best of show, in our Photography 101 class at community college, I was asked to photograph my first wedding, the dean of the college! That went really well and I continued to photograph weddings for 25 years. I transferred to U of MD, where I became a photographer / videographer for their sports marketing dept., photographing most of the Terrapins sports and events. After U of MD, I moved to Florida and began doing school photography. High school seniors and sports were my thing. After a few years, I moved back up north and opened a digital photography studio where I continued to photograph students as well as commercial, weddings, professional sports such as NASCAR, US men's and women's soccer teams, professional rodeo and rock climbers. I've been published in Sports Illustrated, News Week, Time as well as on line for NASCAR.
I was a government contractor, photographic supervisor from 1994- 2012, which is where I worked with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, and Dream Weaver on both Mac and PC platforms. I still have Adobe Photoshop 2.0 on floppy :)
I have almost 20 years of Photoshop experience in digital design, photo manipulation, retouching, color correction, etc.
We always had summer interns, college and high school students that would shadow us for course credit. I really like working with students, young and old, I come from a family of teachers.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Adobe Photoshop since 1994 for my photography and design work. My first copy was 2.1 on floppy disk, and have been using it almost everyday ever since. I have been to numerous Photoshop classes and seminars.

Cooking

I have been cooking most of my life for my family and friends. I currently own a BBQ competition team as well as a catering company. I enjoy teaching different techniques for all meals of the day. I know dutch oven cooking, slow bbq and grilling, camp fire cooking. I am servsafe certified and have learned from some of the best pit masters on the planet. My specialty is probably back yard grilling and smoking for dinner parties etc. I am pretty able in the commercial kitchen as well.

Photography

I have over 25 years of photography experience as well as 20 years of digital photography experience. I photographed my first wedding when I was 18 years old and still photograph them presently. I have professionally photographed NASCAR, Men's and women's National Soccer teams, rodeo's, rock climbers, as well as University of Maryland Terrapins sports teams. I have been published in Frederick Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek, Army Times and Soldiers Magazine as well as on the web at nascar.com for many NASCAR owners, sponsors and drivers. I was a contractor for Department of Defense as supervising photographer for over 18 years. I have tutored many students as well as employee's in lighting technique, indoor and outdoor, composition, action and commercial photography.
