Hey - I'm Mike! Nice to see you 👋

Untitled photo

I'm a Manhattan-based photographer originally from Spring Hill, FL. After receiving a BFA in Acting from Florida State in 2011, I moved to the city to pursue a career on stage. Living in this big, beautiful, but very humbling city has shaped and redirected my main avenue of storytelling from acting to photography, and I just feel incredibly grateful to be doing what I do. 


Take a look around - reach out here if you have any questions!

Frequently Asked Questions

• What's the difference between a "retouched" and a "color - corrected" image?

Retouching a photo includes cleaning up blemishes, softening contours, smoothing skin, fixing stray hairs, etc. This is the "detail work" typically desired in a lead headshot / a photo that will be printed. 

A "color correction" deals in larger strokes - think of it more like setting the mood and colors of the image. Retouched photos are also color corrected.

• Can I bring a friend to my session?

Sorry! Due to Covid 19, clients are not permitted to bring guests to their session.

• How long will it take to get my photos after we shoot?

Clients will receive an email with their proof gallery within 4 business days of their photo session. Final images are delivered 2 - 3 weeks after a client submits their edit selection.

• Do I get to keep all of my photos?

It depends on the package! Check the package details to see how many "final images" are delivered.

• Can I post or print from my proof gallery?

Images in a proof gallery are for selection purposes only.  Please do not share, save or print from a proof gallery.

• How long will I have access to my proof gallery? Can I purchase more photos at a later date?

Absolutely! Clients retain access to a proof gallery for 6 months. Feel free to make another selection at any time and share it with me!  Pricing for additional work can be found under "Studio Rates".

• I need an image very soon! Can I expedite an edit?

Yes! $40 for a 48-hour turnaround.

• I'm not seeing a package that fits what I'm looking for. Do you offer custom packages?
