About Me

Hi, thanks for dropping by.

Now a little about me; I was fascinated by photography the first time I picked up a ‘Real Camera’ which was a 1950’s Kodak Stirling II, a magnificent mechanical contraption where the bellows and lens mysteriously unfolded from within the body; I was immediately impressed with this mechanical marvel, and days later saw how good the ‘pictures’ were relative to my families ‘Brownie’ box camera. I was about fourteen at the time; four years later I bought my first camera in, a Bronica Twin Lens Reflex, which preceded today’s Single Lens Reflex (SLR). I still have the negatives, some I have scanned to digital files and they produce wonderful digital images.

I switched to digital in 2000.  I am still marveling at the technical complexities of today digital cameras and the absolutely fantastic photographs we can all create.
I love most aspects photography, Landscapes, Architectural and City Scrapes, animals of any shape and size.  I also occasionally dabble in Abstracts, but in recent years I have concentrated on portraits, families, individuals and groups and models.

I no longer think of myself as a photographer, more an ‘Image Maker’; very few of my photos are untreated by the various applications I use.

Do enjoy!

One of my grandchildren found this quote, which I’ quite taken with.

When you buy something from an artist you are buying more than an object.
You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation.  You are buying years of frustration and speculation along with brief moments of inspiration of pure joy and occasionally elation.

You are not just buying one thing; you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece if a soul and a small piece of someone else’s life.

Have a great day.

Mike S

"Mike was a gem to work with. His communication was thorough right from pre-shoot planning all the way to going through the photos with me after the shoot. I felt very comfortable working with him, and he is a true collaborator who had a vision yet sought my input. I highly rec...ommend him" more less
