Behind the Lens

Welcome to the planet…

I am a student at the Miami Ad School in Brooklyn, New York studying Art Direction. I have a Bachelors of Business and Administration in Marketing Communications and Advertising from Western New England University & enjoy photography as a hobby and hopefully as something on the side in the future.

Hey everybody! All of that boring nonsense and you don’t even know my name… how else could I steer you away? My name is Mike but I actually prefer Michael ( I promise you I’m not an “uptight” kind of guy, I just value my full name more). I am a photographer yes, but more importantly I’m a dreamer, a fighter, a lover, a friend, a music fan, and will be one of the most positive and laid back gentlemen you will ever come across. Give me a playlist of music, a bottle of wine, great company, and some nice clothes and you’ve just named almost everything worth living for (I guess a couple plane tickets to a new location every now and then couldn’t hurt either).

I realized I loved photography years ago when I would take trips up the street to watch the sunset on an every evening basis. Each time I would find myself wishing to make the moments last as I watched the sun descend beyond the mountain range of Western Massachusetts. I wanted to share, wanted to hold on to those mere memories as long as I could. A past friend had gifted me a camera for Christmas and from there it was history.

Excitement, love, energy, passion. I find it everyday and if I had the pleasure of having my camera with me every all the time I would be able to show you all what I see more often. That day will come, but till then I take the moments I’ve been handed to make something of it.
