    Back in '85- '86 I used to shoot still photos for KDKA in Pittsburgh while in college. Then 15 years as a photojournalist for daily newpapers. Now I'm full on freelance. Haven't worked for "the man" since 98.

    I started out running master control, ended up as senior master control operator when the "other" senior guy (18 years) died in his sleep of a heart attack..... they said, "We see you as a director" and I said, "I see myself as a photographer..... if I don't become one, there's a dozen police departments who'd love to have me.." two months later, I had the spot.

    I shoot for a CBS affiliate. Been there just over 5 years. I'm also the live trucks chief. Before here, I was across town at the NBC for 2 years. They tried to push me into an overnight producer gig, and ended up pushing me into the live truck gig at the other station.

    It has it's days. Good day: go on a big drug bust and get to see/check out all the cool guns seized from criminals, which doubles as advanced knowledge of what's gonna show up at the next seizures auction. Bad day: crazy ass redneck pulls a shotgun on me while I'm shooting his land from a public street. Suddenly, I didn't care that I was there legally. His 12ga pre-empted any law I had on my side.

    I, of course, would be fired for carrying a gun to work(provided I got caught;f )
