The artist uses his view finder as a canvas along with his formal training and professional careers developed a unique style in his photography. When he looks through the viewfinder he has always sensed a natural ability while taking photos. His work consist of architecture, portraits, lifestyle and urban settings. Quotes from the artist 'COLOR is merely a de-fraction of LIGHT, void of LIGHT MyPhotoImages would be non-existent', 'you are the finder of the view and in return, its what the viewer perceives your photo to represent as in a smile to your face, a tear to your eye, an opinion or just pure enjoyment
Michael's photographic creations are the thoughts in his mind, the images he sees in his dreams and the spirit in his heart. His love and passionn for photography and his home, the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, Michael's photography spans over 51 years and was spared any damage from the devastating destruction of Hurricane Katrina.
Thru the camera's viewfinder Michael has captured the spirit of a particular time and place for everyone to enjoy.
