Born in Cheyenne, Wyoming, I moved while an infant to New England, where I spent the first half of my life. The second half has been spent with my wife and family in Southern California. Over 50 years ago I developed an interest in photography which I have pursued avidly over the last two dozen years.
I thoroughly enjoy both landscape and macro photography. The “macro” in me most likely comes from my inherent interests as a biologist during much of my working adulthood, where I have interest in the “macro,” “micro,” and “molecular” world around me. Of the various aspects of photography, black and white holds the most fascination for me. Vivid landscape color also intrigues me.

Mike was born at 8:49 AM, with a No. 3A Folding Pocket Kodak, Model C camera in his hand and Microdol-X in his veins. At age 3 Mike disassembled Dad’s Ansco Cadet I to try to find the pictures. The Ansco never took another photo. Mike honed his panning skills, at age 16, trying to freeze the 200 MPH action of the Double A Fuel Altered “Panic!” at Irwindale Dragway. Today, Mike enjoys exercising those finely honed panning skills, photographing fast moving clouds across the Colorado Plateau and the occasional hummingbird. Please, enjoy the view!

“Most of my work is made up of outdoor photography using available light. My inspiration is everything around me. When I look at things it’s as though I am looking through a camera lens. I carry a camera with me as much as possible. I never know where my next photograph will come from.”
My primary focus in art photography is to provide an aesthetic view of nature, with the goal of conveying my perception and sharing my personal impression with others. Additional areas of my work include photography of people in various contexts and environments and travel photography.
