WHAT CLIENTS SAY

“Mike is one of the best outdoor-location-action-adventure photographers I know. And in his ‘Speedlights, camera, action lighting workshop’ I took, he taught and demonstrated his successful techniques for us all to learn. I came away with new knowledge I could put to practical use right away. He and his wife Lauri make a great teaching team.”

– Jeff S (Anchorage, AK)

“Michael was very helpful in teaching all about photography from basics to advance. He is very knowledgeable and friendly and informative. Lauri was an absolute delight and very helpful during our photography trip. Michael was very patient and worked with me every step.”

– Parimal D (Washington, DC)

“I only had a few days with them to explore and capture amazing Anchorage but will never forget it. Not only did I learn so much from Michael but I felt like I had know them for years, felt safe the entire time, saw and photographed places I would never have found on my own.”

– Susan M (New York, NY)
