Table Setting—Český Krumlov, Czech, Republic Third Place 2009

While at the ABC Television Network, one of the highlights of Gary’s career was the 1984 Summer Olympics, for which he received the first of his three Television Emmys, Outstanding Individual Achievement. In addition to thousands of ABC Sports telecasts during his career, Gary participated in the Presidential Inaugurations of Ronald Reagan and George Herbert Walker Bush, he also covered the Philippine Revolution for ABC News and Nightline in 1986.


When Gary retired from the ABC Television Network, he and his wife Sally relocated to Hoover, Alabama where he began to market his photography. In addition to individual sales, his photographs have been licensed for greeting cards and to supplement a museum exhibit: National Czech & Slovak Museum.


More recently Gary focused his attention and skills on black and white photography, creating a unique style, which resulted in a number of awards including Best of Show—Photography Center of Cape Cod, a Third Place and an Honorable Mention—New York Center for Photographic Art, and many more.


Last year his black and white solo exhibit, Everyday People—We Are All Alike, We Are All Unique was well received at the Gadsden Museum of Art. He has three new projects Bus Stop, Life Is A Blur, and Beeview.


Photography is  art and science. The science of photography is technically perfect images. The art of photography is imagination. The combination of art and science is your voice. Shutter Click To Print—Finding Your Voice is a program Gary developed to explore that concept.
