It all started in Detroit while working as a freelancer for Detroit Monthly Magazine in the mid 90’s, which was a Crain Communications publication. Crain also published the Detroit Red Wings magazine, Inside Line. I was assigned the cover shoot for Inside Line and photographed one of the players for the mag. That shoot was a shoe in with the team. The Red Wings decided to take the publication in-house and asked me to shoot the cover of the inaugural issue! I shot most of the covers and stories for many years to come.
