I was born in Temple, Texas on March 2, 1952. My Great Grandfather, JN Henson was born in the Republic of Texas in 1842.
In 1975 I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Science and English and moved to Austin, Texas.
My first job was in a camera store selling film and cameras. My life changed on March 28, 1977 when Elvis came to town. A friend gave me a free ticket for the show. Two other friends Jerry K. Green and his wife Dawn, helped me get in the right seat to take some great photos. After the concert I was able to sell enough photos to fans all over the world to start my own business.
Over the years I have met and photographed many local and national celebrities including Darrell Royal, Willie Nelson, Arnold Palmer, Ronald Reagan, Henry Kissinger, George Bush, George Strait, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Burt Reynolds and many more.
