Sports photography has been a big part of my life the past dozen years. I love being around the young people and sharing their special moments in sports. What began as a method of keeping me quiet on the sidelines during children's games has become a focal point in my life. My children are grown now and I am enjoying my photography more than ever. I love the beautiful color, intense action and raw emotion in action images. Every day I work to improve my images and with the help and inspiration of the amazing photographers that post online and in sporting magazines, it keeps me fired up to excel.

My wife and I live in and love Western Michigan. We are located about 30 minutes north of Grand Rapids. Few events are right in my backyard, so I typically have to drive a ways to cover great sports. Today I shoot primarily college sports but I still enjoy youth and high school events. If you are interested in hiring me to shoot an individual or team, I would love to hear from you.

Please wander through my site and see if I can be of assistance to you or your team! Thanks for visiting and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
