About Mike

I have been taking photographs for over 30 years. I started as a student at the University of Southern California (USC), where I worked for the university’s News Bureau, the athletic department and various other groups and organization on campus. One year I had the honor of being the photo chief of the yearbook. I have been fortunate enough to have my photos used in advertisements, press books, wire services, and various other print publications.












During my amazing college years, I had the opportunity to photograph Olympic gold medalist, famous celebrities, and even a former President of the United States. After college, I worked for the Police Department as a crime scene photographer, and trained on gathering evidence and classifying fingerprints. That position is now popularly glamorized by the CSI television shows. Today, it’s special photo excursions and whatever else looks good to me. I also take assignments for special events and occasions such as weddings, parties and gatherings.

There is nothing more enjoyable than capturing a spectacular image that tells a story; a victory smile, a proud parent, the glow of the morning sun, a tear of joy, and a job well done. It can be so awe-inspiring.  This website was created as a mechanism to allow me to “share” and showcase some of my favorite images. I hope you find as much enjoyment in them as I do. Let me know If you believe one of my images will look good hanging in your home or office. Photos capture a moment in time you can remember forever.
