For the last 30 years, Michael has traveled extensively creating images for AM and its clients. He is an accomplished location and studio photographer, specializing in singular images that reveal the character, beauty and reality of the subject being photographed. Those subjects have included kids, artists, reel heroes and real heroes, automobiles, bowling balls, firearms, great works of art and the more beautiful refrigerator art. Cheese, chocolate, chefs, and industrial and tribal chiefs. There were spiders and snakes, horses, bears, and skunks. Some of these were four-legged. He has photographed hats, boots, hotels and hospital beds, real people and models, and locations mundane and exotic. But all were photographed with a desire to portray the dignity, grace and reality of the subject in a flattering, yet creative manner.

Michael has received numerous awards for his work, including a feature in the Photographis Annual for his work with Food and Wines from France.

Michael is a graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography and is a member of ASMP.
