has been photographing music and movie celebrities since 1960. As one of the very first dedicated music photographers in a blooming record industry his goals were personal and then turned corporate. His first paid job was with Brenda Lee and after looking at his prints her management sent him his first check for $35. In 1960 an ounce of gold was worth $32.
The Brenda Lee work led to shoots with Sam Cooke, Bobby Vee, Duane Eddy and then the British Invasion with acts like Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Dave Clark Five, The Rolling Stones and in 1965 and 1966, The Beatles.
