Michael is an international and multiverse award winning photographer of such highly super
prestigious awards as:
2012-2019 // “Best Photographer Ever” (mom award)

2015 // “Best Cat Belly Rub”

Michael first purchased a camera circa 2004 and realized shortly there after that he knew absolutely nothing about photography. He spent the next 5 years studying the captivating world of landscape photography before realizing that none of the trees which he photographed ever paid him so his focus shifted to people.
In 2009 he began working as an associate wedding photographer for a local studio and in 2012 he opened his Chicago based studio full-time because his previous full-time job no longer appreciated him editing images during work hours. Michael strives to always do “something new” and adapt to each client that walks in the door which results in many of his sessions having very different looks from one another. He also
enjoys writing about himself in the third person.
