was the official still photographer for THE MIKE DOUGLAS
SHOW in Philadelphia and Hollywood for 15 years, shooting stills of some
of the most famous names of the day, as well as the up and
coming stars of tomorrow. While photographing the show
one day with guests Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart and Mike Douglas, a three-year-old named Tiger appeared with his father and challenged these three avid golfers to a putting contest. The little guy couldn’t sink a single putt, even as the ball was placed closer and closer to the cup. That drew a laugh from the audience. That little boy was Tiger Woods, who is now laughing all the way to the bank. Back then, you never knew who was going to make it big. The Supremes, Dustin Hoffman, Billy Crystal, Neil Diamond,
Ben Stiller, Willie Nelson, Billy Joel, Jodie Foster, David Letterman and Jay Leno were just starting their climb. Then there were other personalities like Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and Martin Luther King, destined to make history.
1972, I photographed a week with John Lennon and Yoko Ono that made
John did a duet with one of his idols, Chuck Berry. That was truly a happening. I also spent a celebrity filled week in Monaco, photographing Princess Grace (Grace Kelly) and Prince Rainer and their children, along with dozens of famous international guests.
Then there were the stars that have since left us, but not our memories. Stars like: Sammy Davis, Jr., Jack Benny, Ray Charles, Bobby Darren, Johnny and June Carter Cash, Louis Armstrong, Andy Kaufman and Sonny Bono.
My photo archive consists of over 500,000 images. Many,
