Michael's interest in photography is primarily centered on landscapes, architecture and automobiles. In each area he tries to capture the ordinary in a distinctive manner to draw the viewer into the scene. The uniqueness could be the result of weather, lighting or time of day or it could be a view or perspective that adds a different dimension and feel to a particular scene.
Stated differently, Michael's objective for landscape is to place viewers into a position where they would enjoy standing, observing and feeling - appreciating being in that spot at that time and in those conditions. His objective for architecture and automobiles is different. Since both are created by a combination of design and engineering, his goal is to capture the element or elements that make the executed design unique as intended by the designers. In some cases the objectives for landscapes and architecture/automobiles are combined such as, for example, when place and lighting combine to enhance a view of an architectural structure.
Michael earned his QPSA in 2020.
