"I've photographed the Chicago Bears from the Goodyear Blimp, been
on the field with the Chicago Cubs and White Sox, and on the court with
the Chicago Bulls. After months of having my photos rejected, I've now been
published in "The Star", Communication World, Roofshots (White
Sox magazine) and Marriage and Family Living. The Star has even hired me
as a regular Stringer Photographer to shoot sports, features, and breaking
I've covered accidents, protests, demonstrations, fires and crime scenes.
I have covered special features on the handicapped, the homeless, and an
air show. I am now a successful photojournalist, and still have time to
freelance, spend time with my children and work on my photography degree.
Go for it. IFPO has the greatest opportunities in the world.
Without IFPO and Today's Photographer magazine
I wouldn't be where I am today."
