He moved to Hawaii with his parents shortly after graduation and started working as a photographer, landing a job with Carter Camera Shops. They were the official Honolulu airport photographers and he was honored to have taken many pictures of visitors, celebrities and dignitaries arriving into Hawaii in the late 50's and early 60's. Returning back to Seattle in 1961, he toured around the US working as a Photographer. He met his first wife Yvonne Thiele in Seattle and they were married on May 26th 1964 in Lake Tahoe NV.
