Documentary photography is one of my passions - drawing upon my two decades of experience as a
professional journalist.
During the past couple of years, I've spent a considerable amount of time photographing local theater,
focusing on the Stray Dog Theater in Tower Grove. I've also documented the refurbishment of a
WWII-era B25-J Mitchell bomber in St. Charles. I've also spent time with the folks at the Yellow
Farmhouse Winery in St. Charles.
I'm always on the lookout for an interesting story that could be told through photography.
For more than two years, the guys with the Missouri Wing
of the Commemorative Air Force worked to put "Show Me"
back into the air. Here's a look at some of the men and the
work they did. The bomber returned to the air late this year.
It was hard to resist the chance to photograph a production
of the "Rocky Horror Show" in 2009 at Stray Dog. Such
great personalities and costumes to go along with them.
Most recently, my time at Stray Dog Theater was spent with
the cast and crew of "Into the Woods." Just a great group of
people to watch while they work.
This is my small tribute to our dog Morgana, who we lost
earlier this year after her lengthly illness. She didn't live
nearly as long as she deserved to. Such a great friend.

From the vine to the glass. I didn't spend as much time with
this one as I had originally hoped. But this one documents
the production of wine at a small vineyard, the Yellow
Farmhouse Winery in Defiance.
