I have been a professional photographer since 1980, beginning my career at Hicks Photographic Studio in Flint, Michigan. In 1982 I was hired as a commercial photographer with Buick Engineering, a division of the General Motors Corporation, and then was promoted over to Buick Public Relations department as Senior Commercial Photographer. While at General Motors I received many awards and accolades for my photographs, as well as having my photographs published in newspapers, books and magazines from all over the world. Since moving to Traverse City in 2002 I open my own studio called Picture This Photography Studio.
I have 40 plus years of experience as a professional photographer both in corporate level, and my studio. I have an Associates Degree in Applied Photography and a degree in Business Administration from Central Michigan University.
My wife Nancy I have been married for 38 years, living in Traverse City area for 22 years and have 3 daughters, Margaret 34, Hannah 31, and Paige 28.
