When I am not illuminating events I tend to be out exploring as much of the world as I can with the camera. My passion is landscape, travel, and HDR photography as you can probably tell from my stream.
Photography is a serious passion of mine. It is another way for me to paint with light. I really love how photography...when you really get into it, forces you to really see the world....this beautiful colorful world. Travel takes on a whole new level for me with a camera, not just snapping shots, but really looking for the light and noticing everything. I know I have alot to learn, but the journey is fascinating!
In my other world, I am the owner and lighting designer for Hylite Productions, Inc. in South Florida. We are a full service special event lighting design and production company. www.hylite.com

"I usually only write a testimonial after getting to know a photographer's stream for sometime. Michael however has the eye, rendering, and comments to put you into some of his great landscape photos; thus deserves to get more recognized for his photography."

"Michael is one amazing photographer with great post processing skills. He is one of only a handful of folks on Flickr who, in my opinion, know how to use HDR to improve an already great image. He is very talented. And although I don't know him "in real life" I bet he is one heck of a nice guy to boot! Check out his work, but make sure you have a few minutes - you will likely spend more than a few minutes browsing his amazing images!"

"I can't believe I am the first who's writing a testimonial for this talented photographer.
Michael is a skilled friend of mine who has consistently produced quality work. He holds such a great technique that joins the basics of photography with a unique modern processing style, especially his HDRs.
The result is a style which is never overdone. He has the view of an artist.
Well done Mike and I look forward to many more of your images.
