Mike is a photographer and raconteur hailing from the coast of Southern California. Drawing inspiration from spearfishing, surfing, and his own outdoor exploits, he has a knack for creating images and films that embody the raw emotions of people and places. He's drawn to stories with deep character. The more grit, the better.
Mike's assignment work focuses primarily on commercial outdoor and ocean imagery, with a healthy dose of portraiture in the mix. Organizing nimble teams that deliver big results is his specialty. Smaller footprint production allows his crew to intimately capture the locations and stories that inhabit the corners of the map, far from the beaten track.
Currently, Mike splits his time between California & Hawaii. His favorite food is fresh yellowtail, and his favorite pictures to make are portraits. He is available for assignment worldwide.
