Hello, and thanks for visiting my page!
My name is Mike, and I've been a resident of Yosemite National Park since June 1, 2010. I work at the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite Valley as a Staff Photographer. I conduct morning interpretive photo walks, assist in teaching photography and I'm also available for private guiding as well. I love my job as it has allowed me to meet many of my favorite photographers. I am also able to live in Yosemite Valley, which gives me plenty of time to chase good light.
Yosemite has inspired photographers and artists for many generations, and I am no different. Yosemite is a very special place, full of exciting landforms and spectacular light. After completing my degree in Geography from Sacramento State, I could not think of a better place to go. Although Yosemite has been presented by many photographers before, I would like to show Yosemite in new ways by showing smaller portions of the park. Some of my favorite areas are the small, hidden areas just off of trails that most visitors do not ever get to see and enjoy. Since I studied Yosemite so much in college, I hope to show unique geological features in some of my images as well.
I also enjoy doing abstract photos working with colors and shapes within moving water, especially when using reflections as an element of the photograph. You will find photos of the main, grand vistas, but I will only try to present them when I find them to be including particularly interesting light, weather patterns, etc. I'd like to focus on images that combine color, shapes, textures, and patterns that create pleasing images.
I shoot with a mix of cameras, including digital and medium format film, and a 4x5 field camera as shown in the image at the top of the page.
All images are available in black and white, although I generally shoot in color. If you would prefer an image in a monochrome format, please let me know and I can create one for you.
Thanks for stopping by!
