Michael has spent his years capturing the still image of people, cultures, and landscapes from around the world, to around the block, with a very unique and distinctive style. A native Californian, Michael resides in Los Angeles, though equally at home trudging through Redwood forests, riding the rails deep into Siberia, or navigating the chaotic streets of Tokyo. He photographs with many types of cameras and film, from a clunky toy camera to the latest digital model, using each as a tool for a specific use. Michael’s fine art imagery has garnered recognition from the International Photography Awards, the Prix de la Photographie in Paris, Photographers Forum, and Critical Mass. His work has been published in Harper’s, Black & White (U.S.), Black & White (U.K.), Esquire, New Statesman, Adore Noir, Fraction, SHOTS, Diffusion Annual, and Lenscratch, among others. He also continues to exhibit his prints domestically and internationally in both solo and group exhibitions, including work in the public collection of the Wende Museum in Los Angeles, CA. Michael was also an active Board Member for the L.A. chapter of the American Photographic Artists (APA/LA) from 2006-2016, and was Editor at Blur Magazine from 2014 – 2018. Currently, he is also Editor in Chief at Analog Forever Magazine and Founding Editor at Catalyst: Interviews.
