Entertainment Photography

Entertainers and photographers/writers naturally go together. My credits include interviews and images of President Ronald Reagan, William Shatner, Joe DiMaggio, Red Skelton, Conway Twitty, Doc Severinsen and various other dignitaries here and in Russia.

Editors in need of interviews and images, I can do both. Please contact me for details. Following are photographs of one of my most recent pieces.

Mark Pearson, one of the Brother’s Four folk group, has been playing music all his life. He recently celebrated his 60th birthday with a sold-out performance at Seattle’s prestigious Benaroya Hall. I shot these images during the rehearsal and the performance. they accompanied an article/interview I did for Peninsula Life magazine.

The band includes: Mark Pearson, guitar, banjo, vocals; Mike McCoy, guitar, vocal; Ted Brancato, piano; John Morton, guitar; Paul Elliott, violin; Dan Dean, bass; and John Bishop on drums.
