I have a passion for photography that started in college at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma. During a photography class I discovered my love and talent for photography. While on a college golf trip to the Bahamas, I brought a camera and begin experimenting. My teammates commented on how my photos looked "better" than everyone else's. My images had perspective and interest. From that point on, the seed had been planted for me to grow into the photographer I am today.
As I began my first real career as a golf professional, the dream of becoming a full time photographer remained in the back of my head. I continued to study, experiment and learn as much as possible about photography. I took random photo jobs on the side and began working towards becoming a professional photographer. After much study and determination, I opened Innovative Images in Nov., 1992, in downtown Frisco in the same location that it exists today. In 1995, I became a Certified Professional Photographer and obtained my Master of Photography from the Professional Photographer's Association. Since then, I have earned many photography awards including multiple times as "Dallas Photographer of the Year." On the national level, I have twice been selected "Best Senior Photographer." In addition, many of my images have won local, state and national honors.
My wife, Tana is my partner in everything including Innovative Images. We have two adult children, Alona and Brock, and son in law, Patrick. Nike, our furry Peek a Poo, completes our family.
In my free time my favorite activity is hanging out with my family. In addition, I love playing golf, watching football and baseball, and gardening. I am an avid fan of the Texas Rangers and Oklahoma Sooners.
I LOVE photography and strive to be the best possible photographer I can. My thirst for learning and creating keeps me passionate and fresh in my field. The trust of my clients, the support of family, and the blessings of God allow me to continue to do what I love.
I am so grateful for the incredible loyalty from my amazing clients throughout the years. Each day is a blessing and opportunity to record life, love and legacy through the lens of my camera.
