I Started My Career Shooting and Writing for Boat Publications

At the beginning of my photography career I photographed and wrote
articles for many different boating publications. Having grown up in
Florida, I had an innate understanding of boating and fishing so this
came naturally to me. I had the pleasure of accessing many of the
greatest names in racing and boating from Magnum, Cigarette, Donzi,
Apache,as well as many others. But among all of my boating assignments
none made such an impact on me as the afternoon I spent with Gary
Garbrecht. Actually I shadowed him most of the day and his energy level
and innovative thinking abounded in everything he did. Below you will
find the magazine feature I did of him in 1989 that was in Powercraft
Magazine. This was an exclusive interview and to my knowledge(Mr.
Garbrecht told me he had never had done an in-depth interview)it never
been done before or after.

He was one of the pioneers of outboard engines.   His innovations in boat racing are still in use today.  This article was picked up by many other publications but it really was the only in-depth interview he ever gave.  I am still very proud that he decided that I would be the one he shared with.
