I'm Mike, a photographer based in La Jolla, CA. I've been making pictures since the early '80's and I specialize in making images in and around water. Beyond this, I've worked on a wide variety of editorial assignments and commercial projects.
I believe a successful shoot involves a good match between the client and me - I'm big on relationships. Whether it's a portrait or a product shoot I want my clients to be comfortable and enjoy the process of making great images.
Why consider me for your next photo session? Simply put, I care. Beyond this, I'm reliable, reasonable and easy to work with. You can trust me - I deliver what I promise. I've shot big jobs for large corporate clients as well as small projects for start-ups. I've shot in wide-ranging environments from the exotic to the mundane, from the chaos of Time Square to the serenity of Hawaii's warm tropical waters . If necessary, I'll do whatever it takes to get the shot.
It starts with a phone call (or an email) - so get in touch. Let's talk about your next shoot.
