The World’s Most Creative and Inspiring Photo Adventure Vacations


Travel, People, Landscape and Nature Photographer


Michael was born and raised in the Boston area and still lives there — some of the time. His camera has taken him to some of the most photogenic spots on the globe and he is as likely to be found in an airport lounge as his living room. Michael’s early photographic experience was through the lens of a Minolta SRT-101where he learned photography as a journalist and a darkroom rat. That early work of capturing a moment influences his style today. His images have won numerous awards, are shown in galleries and hang in homes across the country.

Michael enjoys imparting what he’s learned to others. He has conducted workshops and seminars in photographic technique and has been told he can make the exposure triangle actually understandable! Be sure to ask him anything that you want an opinion on, or just want to understand a little better. He’ll help you make sure you bring home images that you’ll be proud of. He enjoys photographing with others as the creative energies strengthen through shared experiences.

He says, “The bottom line is, I love to shoot. Whether it’s around the corner or around the world there are photographs to be made everywhere. The camera is a great introduction to the people I meet and it breaks down any language barrier almost instantly. Beautiful scenes of nature can be captured; precious moments frozen in time. We all move through our space in the world so fast that we miss some of the most miraculous moments around us. The camera slows me down. It encourages observation. And when I’m lucky, I get to be in the right place at the right time to capture that sliver of a moment through the lens. For me, photography is the never ending search for those slivers.”
