Mike's passion is photography and it shows. He thrives on solving visual challenges with lighting and composition. He enjoys transforming the mundane to the visually exciting. "Making a two dimensional photograph of a person or product jump off the page is my goal. I want the viewer to look at the picture and want to know more about the subject, enough to turn the page for more or ask questions about what they see. I want a reaction to my subject, especially if it's a product or a person selling a product."
"Much of my enthusiasm comes from the fact that I did many different things before making photography my career and when the bug bit it changed my whole life. It didn't happen overnight. It started as a hobby and kept growing into a passion that I couldn't deny."
