Technically, my photography experience began as one of two photographers for my high school yearbook. I met my wife as the other photographer in that class in 1979.and we both went Morehead State University. On the way to earning a Bachelor's degree in Business Management, I took photography classes that served as a solid foundation for everything I've learned about photography. I currently live on thirteen acres in Mercer County with my wife Denise, her chickens and a rescued dog. With my parents, I helped manage Lee's Inc. for almost 40 years. It was our very successful Suzuki, Yamaha, and Kawasaki dealership in Harrodsburg, KY. We ranked in the highest of customer satisfaction scores in the nation until we sold the business in 2015. Beginning when I was thirteen, those four decades of helping customers and countless customer satisfaction seminars taught me how to deliver a great client experience from start to finish. Prompt and reliable communication and delivering more than expected are key parts of that process.
You may wonder why or how someone can go from managing a successful powersports dealership to photographing people. Since we sold our dealership and I'm not working 60 hour weeks, I have the freedom to spend more time on my lifelong interest in photography. It's the second career that I looked forward to and I'm enjoying the combination of making clients happy and meeting the technical and creative challenges it provides. In addition to photographing high school seniors, families, and weddings, I occasionally serve as second photographer for other photographers in our area and provide photography services for various commercial clients. Being semi-retired, I have found a good balance between working often enough to keep my skills sharp and being able to enjoy this time in life with my family.
