Born in Japan, raised in Galveston Bay area near Houston, but
truly inspired photographically on a trip to New York City at
age 12. Carrying a borrowed plastic Kodak camera,
I marveled at (and photographed) everything from the Flatiron
and Empire State buildings to the steam rising from manhole covers
in the streets. The obsession with photography steered me
through high school photo classes and two degrees in photography
afterward. Then onto Dallas to study under dozens of established
photographers with dozens of areas of specialties until going
it alone in 1983. My fascination with the mix of problem
solving, ingenuity, lighting, and synergy of working with talented
designers and art directors have allowed me to continue to do
both location and studio still life and avoid the staleness that
specialization induces. My clients tend to be loyal and
often become personal friends. I've photographed everything
from microchips, to CEO's of major corporations, to elephants
in the studio. On location it's been everything under the
sun and more from USA, Canada, Mexico, to Korea, China, and Yugoslavia.
I love a challenge, and rarely find one I can't finesse into a
