What Clients Say

“Working with Michael for a private mentoring session took my photography skills to the next level. Michael opened my eyes to creative, new compositions, he taught me how to read the changing light, and he shared new techniques for achieving tack-sharp images. In addition to the wonderful photography learnings, Michael was an entertaining and experienced companion for exploring the canyons of Zion allowing me to see places I had not yet seen or explored.”
