Spent 25 years in the Broadcast television industry teaching people how to operate equipment, including cameras. Have travelled to 50 countries and been taking photographs for 40 years. Even spent some time in the mid 70's as a wedding photographer, but wanted my weekends back so switched into video. Am available for assignments anywhere.
