01 about

Michael shoot0259 copy_edited.jpg


This is my pensive look. I'm being contemplative about what my next tattoo might be.


When I'm not being ruminative, I'm just editing todays work or planning for tomorrows.  It's all I do and I love it (I love my wife, kids and dog too, and a friend or two)!

I photograph (and style) interiors coast to coast working for interior design magazines, interior designers, architects and  builders.  I like to describe the style of my work as "moody" (when the client allows it). If the photo doesn't evoke some type of emotional response within the viewer, it would be very remiss of me.


I've been doing this for 35 years and yep, that makes me old, but that at least puts me in the "over 10,000 hour club" which according to Malcolm Gladwell is the magic number to attain greatness and be considered truly elite in your craft.  And (and it is perfectly acceptable to begin a sentence with and) you're not just hiring a photographer, but a highly creative visual stylist that will help you style and prop to get just what you want out of each and every room.

Oh, anything else you might want to know (besides that I like Hostess-Twinkies) is just an email or text away, no sense in giving you more to read when you're really just here to look at pretty pictures.
