Welcome to Portfolio by Michael

Photography is my way of staying connected with nature.  As a kid my family was always spending time outdoors.  Camping, fishing, visiting national parks – these were some of my happiest times growing up.  A number of years back I realized that the pressures of professional life were keeping from enjoying the outdoors the way I used.  That’s when I decided to take up photography.  This is this just a hobby for me, but it gets me out doing the kinds of things I enjoy most.  And so, I decided to build a site to share some of the interesting places I’ve found to take nature photos.  This site is organized according to the places where the photos were taken.  You’ll find a few tips sprinkled throughout the site on when to go and how I went about taking some of these photos.  If you like an image just contact me and I’d be happy to send you a high resolution image file.  I’d only ask that you give credit when possible in places where you use an image.  Enjoy the site.
