Hi, my name is Mike and I work as a photographer in Germany, Europe (mainly Paris and Vienna), Ukraine (Odessa, Kiev, Lviv) as well as in the San Francisco Bay Area & San Diego & Mexico (mostly Tijuana, Mexicali and the Baja California).
I've been actively photographing since the age of 6, and had my first black&white lab at the age of ten. At 16 I developed slide films and did Cibachromes in my own color lab, had my first SLR, a CANON, and stayed with that company until today. Since the 80’s I did mostly animal and macro photography, working with various stock photo agencies, e.g. Okapia in Frankfurt. That's why I still prefer shooting outdoors and with available light, although I do studio work from time to time.
Nowadays I'm working mainly as a wedding and event photographer but do a lot of fashion and beauty shootings for the company 'MKvip Beauty - Cosmetics and more…' of my wife the make-up artist Ganna Krukovska. MKvip Beauty also offers a complete sedcard service for models at very fair prices – just ask.
TfCD-shootings possible also if I like the idea :-)
I'm in the Bay Area and in San Diego (as well as Tijuana and the BC) at least two times a year for four to five weeks at a time and would love to do a few more great shootings in those wonderful places! So if you live in one of those areas and would like to do a shooting with me, don’t hestitate to contact me and we will schedule something! Same goes for Odessa, Ukraine, where I am quite often as it is my wife's hometown.
