It’s hard to believe that I just celebrated my 40th year as a professional photographer.  It’s been such an incredible journey – filled with experiences and opportunities I couldn’t have imagined when I took those first few steps many years ago.  I’m very grateful for all of the guidance, help, and opportunities I’ve received from so many wonderful people.   While I’ve seen a lot of changes in this industry, several things still stand out and remain at the core of who I am and what my business represents – Always treat people with courtesy and respect.  Be a positive, fun person to work with. And pour every bit of your knowledge, creativity, and passion into every assignment you’re involved in.  Life is just too short for anything else.

Based in mid-Missouri, location photography is my specialty, and my commercial assignments take me to small towns and large cities alike.  Construction sites to corporate boardrooms, and much more.  I’m comfortable working solo or with a full team of talent, whatever it takes to bring success to the project and my client.

Subjects and genres include people, lifestyle, food, architecture, travel, aerials, and product photography.

My fine art photography is inspired by light, color, and texture.  Subjects and genres include people, landscapes, and architecture.  Large archival prints are collected by corporations, institutions, and private homeowners.

Thank you for visiting!  Reach out to me with any questions you may have.  I hope to have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with you on a project soon!      Michael
