"After 1969, my first tour was with the Osmond Brothers in 1970. Then working with various other artists, until 1973's Rod Stewart and the Faces; in 1974, I was on his american tour with Elton John for 10 weeks; worked with Fleetwood Mac for 3 years touring the US, Japan, and France. Worked on the Billie Jean video with Michael Jackson and that started a 10-year collaboration between the two of us. Travelled the world again and again with him on The Jacksons' "Victory Tour", Michael Jackson's "Bad WorldTour", and "Dangerous World Tour"; all the while photographing the Bad album cover and covering his video shoots as well.
Michael called me "The man who captures the magic" I was able to live my dream in the music industry and then for 25 years and 73 films in the movie industry."
