Love imagery, hate reading too much. (Also hate littering) Love food and the joy and communion it brings with people.
Scientific factual father and artsy mother, has maybe lead to the medium of photography. Where the wonder of the imagination through the camera, with the majesty of light brings into reality the photograph.
The play between shadow and light has fascinated me since childhood.

"A day in the studio with Michael is always a great day at the office. For a guy who takes his job so seriously he has a wicked sense of humor and the ability to see the funny side of the most challenging situations. He is a lightmaster extraordinair and his talent and unique point of view ensures that you always get an even more beautiful shot than you imagined. And he makes great coffee, which is always a bonus ;)"

Michael’s work speaks volumes and is why I recommend him to all my clients."
