In the Visalia photography scene since 1978, a professional photographer in Visalia since 1984

I have been in the photography business in Visalia since 1978, first selling cameras at Visalia JC Penney store, then moving on to a little camera shop in downtown Visalia, now out of business, but located where the Sequoia Brewing Company is now,  called Main Drug, then on to another studio now out of business also called Alberts studio in 1986 before going full time as a professional photographer in 1993. It has been an honor to record the lives of countless couples and families over the years and it’s still a thrill when someone comes up to me at an event and says I did their wedding twenty or thirty years ago. To be part of this wonderful community and the lives of the people in it is still exciting and I love to go to work every day.
