After receiving his first camera at the age of 17, Michael became fascinated with photography and its process as an art. That same year, he went to his first exhibition winning second place amongst some of the best photographers in Ukraine. Michael graduated from the Kiev Art Institute in 1980 where he learned and refined his photographic technique. In 1998, he moved to the United States of America and currently resides in Seattle, Washington where he enjoys photographing the city, nature, and people of the area.
Michael is a professional photographer with more than 35 years of experience. His mastery of the camera has expanded to the digital world and now brings to his work the complete range of digital techniques using the most advanced resources available. Technology alone does not create beauty â that requires a sense of artistry, an eye for composition, color, and mood. He applies these qualities to all branches of image-making: weddings, birthday parties, Bar-Mitzvas, Bat-Mitzvas, corporate parties, real estate photography, portraits, and photo sessions for artists and models.
Michael offers a complete range of photography and video services, including on-the spot delivery of photographs and creation of albums. His approach to a photography assignment is to closely work with each client to learn what they want and to strive to deliver images that capture the spirit and beauty of their important moments in life.
