My name is Mike. I grew up right here in Erie PA. Photography has been a passion of mine since I was about 10 years old running around with my Mom's 35mm Pentax camera. I spent the next 15 or so years shooting mostly nature, wildlife, and macro photography with both film and digital cameras. In 2008 I started branching out into more portraits and work with new models looking to build a strong portfolio. You will find photos of several of the models I have worked with here. Now, there isn't much that I'm not comfortable shooting!
I currently shoot with Canon DSLR cameras(fully digital). I still love shooting outdoors or on location with natural lighting whenever possible, however I also have a small studio space with lighting available for when the weather does not cooperate or when lighting needs to be controlled more precisely. On occasion I can even bring the studio to you! If we will be shooting in a location that has power, then I can bring the lighting necessary to achieve the perfect photos!
I always keep an open mind and love new suggestions or ideas proposed by my clients! If you have something specific in mind that you'd like me to shoot and you don't see it here yet CONTACT ME and chances are... we can make it happen!
