My passion for photography began as a 12-year-old when I purchased my first camera, a Pentax K1000, with money from a summer job. After I was honorably discharged from the Navy, I followed that passion to obtain a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Photography and Journalism from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I have since worked as a professional photojournalist after graduating in 1998, more than seven of those years at The Paducah Sun, where I am currently working, as well as working on my master’s degree requirements at Murray State University. During my years in the Navy, I traveled to several states and countries meeting people of different cultures and socio-economical classes. The experiences of meeting such a variety of people allowed me to grow personally and professionally, enabling me to bring a special honesty and realistic value to my work. Though I am trained in many facets of photography, photojournalism is where I can bring my past experiences to the present and create interesting images that tell a story. Highlights of my career include two honorable mentions in the Photographer’s Forum College Photographer of the Year, two third place awards in the Kentucky Press Association awards, one for Best General News Pictures and one for Best Sports Picture Essay and a photograph featured on Pictures of the Week. Furthermore, I have had assignments with several national publications, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Air Force Times, Bartender Magazine and Carpenter Magazine to name a few.
