Based in Biloxi, Mississippi, Tarter Photographic Services specializes in magazine, advertising, photojournalism, sports, and fashion photography.

I was graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Photojournalism, and have been a professional photographer for over twenty-five years, including time as director of photography for two award-winning daily newspapers. I have received numerous state and regional awards for my work, and I led the visual effort of the Biloxi Sun Herald's Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. In addition, I served as Director of Photography of beachblvd magazine, an award-winning lifestyle on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
