My background and experience.

I am a semi pro sports photographer, meaning, I have been paid for some of my work.

I use a Canon 1d Mk.2 digital camera as my main body, and I have a Canon 300d digital camera as a back up, and secondary body.

My lens sets are all Canon, and are either L quality telephoto, or prime.

I usually hand hold the bodies, rarely using a monopod unless I rent a big ass lens that demands support.

I know how to rig, so, occasionally I rig the bodies in a venue and either remote trigger, or manually trigger the shutter to get the shot I am after.

I was the Hart Pony Baseball and Softball League photographer from 2002 until 2010 when I retired that position. I did not like the politics.

I have been shooting stills since high school and through most of my college education.

My bread and butter is in the motion picture industry in Hollywood, working as a set lighting technician, but mostly I have been finding myself rigging shows and enjoying that a lot.

Currently, I have been teaching sports photography through the city of Santa Clarita, CA.  You can find my class schedule through their Seasons magazine.
