Hi, I’m Mike
Photography first came onto my radar when my wildlife photographer uncle let me tag along as a teen to one of his shoots. We were sitting on the beach, when, out of the blue, this fierce, wild osprey came gliding through the sky. So, I tried to photograph it….and failed (hey, I was only 14).
Even so, the experience sparked a lifelong passion. I found in photography an outlet for both my creative expression and my endless fascination with technology and technique.
I’ve since discovered that shooting the beautiful, fleeting moments lived by people, not wildlife, comes with an even greater reward: an extraordinary opportunity to help people celebrate what makes them special.
My mission is simple: To help people stand out by providing a fun, energetic, imaginative, and customized portrait experience with vibrant lighting that makes them feel like empowered and badass celebrity models in a magazine every time they look at their stunning artwork.
When I’m not taking photos, I’m probably watching football (go Jackets!), reading Harry Potter (for the bajillionth time), or listening to podcasts about why people do what they do—all with a glass of wine or cold beer in hand. And sometimes, you might just find me dancing and singing my ass off in a musical theater production.
Bottom line: Hiring a photographer is an investment, and finding someone who gets your style and personality is incredibly important. Feel free to peruse my blog, learn more about me, check out the process, and ask some questions. After that, send me a message, and let’s find a time to grab some coffee (tea for me!) or a beer and chat about your vision
