Call me Bob. I am a freelance photojournalist and writer available for travel and editorial assignments. I love creating images that tell the story, or rather, letting the viewer peer into my subject's eyes and learn their story firsthand. I have been shooting and traveling for over 40 years. Check out my portfolios below.
In 1997, I moved to Bangkok, Thailand. All in all, I lived there for 12 years. Those years are like another lifetime ago. My work has appeared in Bangkok Prestige Magazine and Bangkok Jungle.
I have since returned stateside with my family and settled in Saint Joseph, Missouri. St. Joesph, or St. Joe as it's known to the locals, is only minutes north of Kansas City's international airport. St. Joe is infamous for the Pony Express, outlaw Jesse James, Kansas City Chiefs Training Camp, and Chase Candies' Cherry Mash.
