After 30 years of photography,
I have decided to retire as of January 2017. It is time to move on.
Over the years I have had several interns. My first intern was a spur of the moment decision that I made when I met our waitress at hometown pizza. From that point on I have had eight ladies that interned with me. I would only accept three at a time and this rule forced me to reluctantly decline several peoples request to intern. Having interns was a very time consuming thing while not bringing any revenue to the company. With that being said, it was something that I enjoyed immensely. Teaching photography to these ladies many times took a backseat to discussing life's troubles and helping them stay true to their selves. Watching their photography skills surpass mine was a real treat for me, with pictures in magazines including " The Rolling Stone ", photographing celebrities in L.A., California , photographing basketball and sporting events at U of L and Bella mine, starting their own photography businesses and so on.
