I began RD Sports Photo in 2005 after seeing a need/want for sports action photos of the young athletes in and around the Gaylord area. At the time I started RD Sports Photo, the number of photographers taking sports photos was few and far between. Today, with the advance in photography equipment, there can be many cameras on the sidelines. What has kept me going is the response and support through the years from the parents of the young athletes. I have been creating photos for so many years now, the kids I photographed when I first started, are now the parents of young athletes I photograph today....just amazing.
I have lived in Gaylord for most of my life and am married to my beautiful wife, Gina, that has supported me in this passion though the years, taking care of our 2 sons Landen > Lucas, at times when I would be out photographing a game. I really thought I would be doing this only through the point my kids were out of high school, but years after my youngest son's graduation, I still have the passion to continue to freeze a moment in time to be left for others, long after I am not a part of this silly game called life anymore. Thank you to all of the customers that have made this happen...It has been a rewarding experience for me to capture these images for you!
