"My basic philosophy is to create photos that compliment and accentuate the unique characteristics and personalities of each individual person, place or thing while evolving my overall photographic style." -Michael

Michael's photography delivers style & distinction. Friendly and personable, he helps you to warm up in front of the camera so that your photographs will have a natural, spontaneous feel. While paying very close attention to details, he is also careful to be very aware of the unexpected moments during an event or session that make for amazing photographs.

Michael is available by appointment for local (Orange County, San Diego, Los Angeles) and destination events.

"Photography is all about passion. Passion for communication, passion for art, passion for light and for change. Every moment of every day there are pictures happening all over the world, I can't hope to catch them all but I've been very lucky to be able to witness some of them."
