About Our Art
Mike is a native of Missouri, who grew up roaming the open fields and farmlands of what is now known as Chesterfield Valley. Never forgetting the splendor of those adventures he has kept his love of nature and his admiration of American landscapes alive in his photography for over fifty years. With his photography, he possesses the ability to showcase all of the beauty, majesty and humor that nature has to offer.
He began his lifelong passion for photography at a very young age. His parents were always buying the latest camera equipment for the family, without the knowledge or talent to use it. He began by photographing family activities, but nature was his calling and he became more creative and zealous as the years passed.
Mike’s work has taken him throughout the continental U.S. along with Hawaii and Alaska. His photography has been published in books and magazines, both in the U.S. and abroad. The techniques he uses, not only captures the composition of a subject, but the personality as well, which seems to have a worldwide appeal.
Mike is both a juried member of the GREATER ST. LOUIS ARTISTS ASSOCIATION, BEST OF MISSOURI HANDS and is a resident artist with Chesterfield Mall’s “MINDSCAPES GALLERY”. His photography and show schedules are constantly updated on his website:
