Twenty-seven years ago I picked up a camera and every day since I have honed the craft of image capture.
Mike works between Sunny South Florida and even sunnier Denver Colorado, so it is clear Mike loves the sun! Mike has been creating images since 1991 when he lived in Bangkok Thailand using hand rolled B&W bulk film and continues today some 27 years late, that's a just a tick over a quarter century! Holly Cow! Today Mike along with a hand-picked creative team curates images for his clients. Mike is a bit more than a simple show up and click photographer, that quarter century of practice puts a vision and technical know-how that is hard to equal.
Non profit work
Mike always seen the world a bit differently than most. He sees the world for what it is, and sees people for whom they are, without the faux gloss that is often times painstakingly applied to cover the obvious flaws and cracks. It is with this vision of the world that he brought together a group of very talented creative minds to tackle a problem often glossed over and forgotten. After a trip to the outskirts of Bogota, Colombia, Mike Co-Founded the Elastic Mind Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicate poverty by means of educative programs aimed to help children in disenfranchised communities. Elastic Mind Project's programs are focused on the arts, with photography as one of the main workshops; children receive disposable cameras and are taught the basics of photography as they explore their own environment and register their life in a medium often more powerful that what they are able to express with words
Mike currently serves as the Chairperson for the elastic mind project, and continues to travel around the globe educating and teaching seminars in what he loves to do the most.
