I have two main interests; photography and wellness. Fortunately, both have enriched my live professionally and personally. I've always had a love of art but when my father introduced me to photography at eight years old I was completely taken in. Under his tutelage I began to see life in a new way; prospective, light, and color became powerful and emotional. Life was vivid and passionate. After majoring in fine art photography, I opened my first studio in Pennsylvania and spent 15 years photographing celebrities such as Elton John, world figure skating champions, and Sporting events. But something else was calling and I was not getting any younger. Inspired by a World War II photographer, I joined the United States Navy at 34. I wanted to tell the story of the brave men and women who put their lives on the line everyday. I wanted to capture their fear, anger, compassion, joy, and pride for generations to appreciate. I moved my studio to southern California after my second tour of duty in the Middle East. I fell in love with the weather, the land, and the people. California opened eyes to other philosophies; introduced to natural solutions to health and brought me face to face with a wellness philosophy that restored me. The diverse culture of southern California showed me the big picture and made me feel at home. While the years of travel and experience photographing ceremonies, celebrities, humanitarian relief operations, and combat troops on the tip of the spear taught me; life is in the details.Owner @ Inspiring, creative, and fun, Michael documents life with an easy-going and joyful professionalism.
