Since 1975 when I was a sophomore in high school I have had a camera with me. Since then I have taken thousands of photos with youth sports being one of my favorites. In September of 1978 I became a paid/call firefighter for Machias (Maine) Fire Department. today I am still a member of the Machias Fire Department plus the Marshfield Volunteer Fire Department and the Washington County Strike Team (HazMat). Being a firefighter has allowed me to take photos that others do not have access to. My other interests include amateur radio and I hold an extra class license. Please enjoy my books, they show some of my favorite shots over the years.
