Every day, every shoot… I absolutely love what I do!
For over 30 years with Turner Broadcasting: from his early days as a Video Journalist for CNN to Director of Photography with Turner Studio’s elite Film and Video Unit, Mike was awarded the opportunity to travel the world creating stunning imagery.
He was hired directly out of college and worked his way up and around the Turner organization, broadening his experience as he went, including: field sound recording, long format post-production editing, videography, and field producing. Eventually he found his comfort zone and his greatest challenges within the Turner Studio’s Film and Video Unit shooting high-end entertainment productions.
Michael brings the same intensity and passion to exotic locations and to the seemingly mundane. He’s shot “everyman”, businessmen, icons and news makers. He’s shot in war zones and end zones, from some of the highest peaks to stunning underwater depths.
Since leaving Turner in 2012, Mike has brought his eye for capturing truthful images and his warmhearted exuberance to all his projects and clients. As a Rescue and ReBreather Certified SCUBA diver for over 30 years, Mike looks for every opportunity to shoot above and below the ocean surface.
Mike lives in Atlanta with his wife, 2 daughters, 2 golden retrievers and a vast array of photographic and dive equipment.
