A Fan's Journey to a World Series Championship
The Philadelphia Phillies and their journey through the 2008 season.
I've been doing photography part time professionally for over 25 years, including weddings, studio and outdoor portraits, and just about every kind of sports imaginable. I've worked for and been published in several local newspapers. My pictures have been displayed in The Reading Museum, several restaurants and coffee shops...even on billboard advertising.
I created and published a book, "A Fan's Journey to a World Series Championship," about the Philadelphia Phillies and their journey through the 2008 season. Two of the pictures from my book were included in the 400+ page history of the Phillies; The Philadelphia Phillies: An Extraordinary Tradition, which was released in the spring of 2010. I also provided most of the pictures for a book titled, "My First Phanatic Book," a children's book published in 2011.
My cameras have taken me many places and given me the opportunity to see many, many things that I would otherwise have never seen. I've photographed the Alaskan glaciers, the Blue Angels, many forms of entertainment, people at work, people at play, weddings and other celebrations, wild and domestic animals. Most importantly, they've allowed me to record the events and activities of my family for the last 30 plus years.Since 2003, I've had the opportunity to do a lot of work in the studio. I've really enjoyed photographing a wide variety of subjects there. Everything from newborn babies, to a family with thirteen children. Even family pets!
I've been shooting sports for the PAC10 websites (Montgomery, Chester & Berks County schools) since their inception a few years ago. These websites are part of the National High School Coaches Association Sports Network.
I also spend many hours playing around in Photoshop, turning my pictures into what a lot of people tell me are "works of art." I also do restoration of old and damaged photos, as well as other photo manipulation and retouching.
I use Nikon digital cameras and lenses
