Don's love for photography began years ago as a hobby. As Don pursued photography it became evident that God has provided a talent that has become his passion.

Don is a nationally recognized photographer, with his work winning awards from The Southwest Professional Photographers Association, The Professional Photographers of the Ozarks, and The Professional Photographers of America. He has work that has been accepted into the PPA Collection and into the photographic display at Disney's Epcot Center. Don has had work published into the monthly publication of PPA as well as a cover photograph for the Executive Controller magazine.

As part of Don's ongoing involvement in photography, he as served on the Board of Directors of the Professional Photographers of the Ozarks, a four state organization, and served as president in 2001.

In February 2003 Don was recognized by the Professional Photographers of the Ozarks where he received the Suzanne Mertz Award for Achievement. This award is presented by the Past Presidents of the association, and is given to an individual who has put much time and energy into serving the profession of photography.
