Michael is an award winning photographer based out of Philadelphia Pennsylvania.  Specializing in Corporate and portrait photography Michael likes to catch the quirky moments, those times when the prim and proper get goofy.  Portraying a serious image of a serious person is easy.  Getting that same person to let their guard down and give you that look is the trick.  Do that and then you know the smile is real, the image is real and it has a life of its own.

As well as being able to get people to smile and have fun, Michael can get the image that moves you.  His award winning work of the Philadelphia area and its people has been said to give the viewer the “feel of the city.”  Many Philadelphians living away from their native city of brotherly love look at his images and begin to miss all that is Philadelphia.

Take a moment and view all that this photographer has to offer you and view the images on this site to see the architecture, the people and the emotion that could be your home town.
