6 Years of experience

I am a dedicated yogi, health nut, and meditator who loves solo backpacking, reading, and singing devotional music from all traditions.


With regard to photography, I've always been an artist first. In 2001 I launched a career as a website and graphic designer. Stepping into photography full-time as my chosen career path was a natural progression that evolved over the years.


Before COVID I worked a lot with entrepreneurs and their families shooting everything from lifestyle portraits to family portraiture. Because of the changing landscape due to COVID I was forced to get creative with how I ran my business. In 2020 I decided to focus more energy on product photography as it's "pandemic-proof". Even when there's a lock-down (shelter at home order) in place, I can still work from my home studio.


I love what I do. I work with entrepreneurs, individuals, and families to capture contemporary photography for their business needs and/or personal life.


When you work with me you get 20 years of combined experience as a graphic designer, marketing consultant, and photographer


I look forward to working with you.


With Gratitude,


-Michael
