Q&A
Q: Heatwave or Blizzard?
A: Blizzard, I call it free air conditioning.

Q: Favorite type of racing?
A: First: IndyCar, then Formula 1 and NASCAR.

Q: Why is IndyCar #1 on your list?
A: When I was 14, my mom’s boyfriend took us to the Indy 500 time trials.  I have been hooked ever since.  Everyone needs to go to one IndyCar race.  When you do, walk down to the fence next to the track and look straight ahead when a car drives by.  You won’t see a car, just a blur. (IndyCar)

Q: A hidden gem in St. Louis?
A: Nachomamas in Rock Hill (menu)

Q: Nikon or Canon?
A: Neither, I recently switched to Sony.  I have shot both Nikon and Canon in the past and all three companies make fantastic cameras (along with Fuji).  However, I feel Sony now has advantages for the subject matter I shoot. (Sony)

Q: Longest running client?
A: St. Louis Cardinals…2020 was my 36th consecutive season of shooting for them.

Q: You must have started when you were a teenager!
A: Yes, I was 19 when I started shooting seriously.

Q: Star Wars or Star Trek
A: Both!

Q: Which TV series have you watched twice?
A: LOST and Battlestar Galactica.  I just finished Game of Thrones and will watch it a second time as well.  You know, to really understand all of the family names and locations!

Q: I bet you would never watch Downton Abbey?
A: Wrong, it is fantastic!

Q: Favorite client?
A: Nice try, move along :-)

Q: Coffee or Tea?
A: Iced Tea…never got started with coffee.  I know, most people think that is WEIRD!

Q: Favorite motto?
A1: If you are going to do something, do it right.
A2: The harder you try, the luckier you get.

Q: One of the dumbest things you have ever done?
A: Going up on the rim of the old Busch Stadium by the lights to shoot baseball…with no harness.  Crouching down and walking slow was my secret on windy days.

Q: What would you do if you weren’t a photographer?
A: I used to say be a race car driver.  Now it would be to work at an Apple store.  I enjoy helping people with their Apple products. (Apple)
