The saying that "a picture is worth a thousand words" is very true and a thousand words can paint a beautiful and meaningful picture.

Perfecting Photography skills will give us greater freedom of expression. Perfecting our speaking skills will make us better understood and more enjoyable to listen to.
We can work together in either, public speaking or photography or both. I am a photographer for my own pleasure first and than for my clients needs. The experience I have gained is in the areas of news, events, commercial, fashion, out of doors, weddings and portrait photography.

I have forty years of photography experience starting with black and white and color film and evolving into digital photography.

I trained as an apprentice to a wedding and portrait photographer Robert Bagely Photography, for two years and enhanced my education by reading and assisting at weddings and portrait sessions. I began to freelance in the fashion and portrait market in nineteen seventy-five, where I perfected my skills in lighting and exposure.

My most rewarding experience is the students I have tutored who have become proficient in photography.

Individuals must have enough useful information to allow each audience member to assimilate the essence of the information.
Reading with comprehension is the key to education. Reading out loud with feeling and conviction can be a key element of convincing and educating an audience. You will learn to read with comprehension and to read aloud with feeling.
