Mike is a photographer from the coast of Southern California who values creativity and spending time outside. Drawing inspiration from spearfishing, surfing, and his own outdoor exploits, he has a knack for creating work that embodies the raw emotions of people and places. The more grit, the better.
Mike's commercial work blends a documentary style with thorough pre-production and unique creative conceptualization. The resulting imagery is real and relatable with a commercial polish. On set, he brings an infectious energy for creativity and a genuine interest in people. Working with small, nimble teams allows his productions to access the stories and locations that exist further afield 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.
