About me
Hello, I'm Michael McAreavy (hence "m2").  Many thanks for visiting my profile.

Photograph in Greek means "light write."  The moment I discovered this, I felt my life calling was affirmed.  What had long been an elusive, incomprehensible connection between natural light and the written word, my two long-standing passions, suddenly came into focus.  This voyage of light study and recordation eventually led me to gain an appreciation for Taoism and its teachings with regard to humanity, the essence of the natural universe, and the bridge that joins them.  Photography, whether nature, portraiture, fine art, or sports, places a subject and photographer in position to form an emotional bond (or thread) between them.  If the resulting photographs demonstrate a voice of their own, this is our cue to be quiet and let them speak.

As a seventeen year professional landscape photographer who has crossed the American West time and again, I am in the midst of turning a corner and starting a new chapter in art portraiture.  Although my initial inclination is to place my subjects in a natural setting, for I know these open spaces best, I am also quite drawn to the urban landscape and those spaces that are a little "scratched or dented."  I am very driven to making a strong connection between model/subject and the background and/or surrounding area.  Increasing the level of "interestingness" is a top priority.  Above all, light is life, and you are cast in the lead role.
