Hello! Welcome to my website! I am an award winning master photographer & educator based in Port Charlotte, Fl. I am an “active” working photographer constantly adding new images to this site so please put it on your browser bookmarks. Also, please follow my Facebook page and sign up for my email alerts for deals on prints and info on upcoming shoots, classes and workshops.
My wife Cindy and I have lived in the Northwest (Bend,Or.), Southwest (Albuquerque, NM) and Midwest over the last 20 years Mike’s photographs have a wide range. We have now settled in Southwest Florida.
At an early age I felt I saw the world in photographs. I started taking pictures with my Mother's old Kodak Brownie at age eight. I still have that camera sitting in my office.
For me, photography is as much a passion as an art form. I've strived to become relentless in my pursuit for a specific photograph. In recent years I've migrated to what I call "Purposeful Photography". Shooting with a purpose.
Here's a quote I typically use for bio at art shows and presentations. “To be a purposeful photographer you have to get up early a lot, and stay up late a lot and continue to go back until you get the shot you envision. You have to study the weather, the skies, the stars, the moon as well as the effect of the light on the terrain and other features.”
I photograph for the love of nature and love of the art of Photography. Many of my pieces have won awards at local, regional, state and national photo competitiions. These awards have ranged from:
The award I treasure the most is when someone decides to buy one of my fine art photographs. This is the highest compliment an artist can have in my opinion. Above is a photo with some of my buyers at the Leawood, KS Arti Gras Art Fesitval.
Many art collectors and photography fans like to follow my shoots to stay connected for future images or to sign up for workshops, lectures etc. Several ways exist to do that. One of the best ways to follow me is to LIKE my photography Facebook page. Or you can follow my Twitter feed.
I conduct regular marketing campaigns for his photographs. Usually an email a month and post on Facebook. The best and ONLY way to take advantage of these discounts is to follow BOTH my Facebook page AND sign up for my email list.
Here's a selfie I took in the field, about three feet from the edge of Horseshoe Bend outsite of Page, AZ. Follow my Blog to get the details and adventures of his photo trips.
