Michael is an award winning photographer based out of Philadelphia Pennsylvania.  Specializing in architectural and portrait photography Michael likes to catch the quirky moments, those times when the prim and proper get goofy.  Portraying a serious image of a serious person is easy.  Getting that same person to let their guard down and give you that look is the trick.  Do that and then you know the smile is real, the image is real and it has a life of its own.

Michael’s architectural images have visitors and architects in awe of the beauty of the structures. He sees beyond simple brick and mortar and captures the creativity and the beauty of each space or structure. Even in today’s world of buildings that must function as machines, Michael is able to show the workmanship, the craftsmanship, and the art that goes into the creation of a new space.

As well as being able to get people to smile and have fun, Michael can get the image that moves you. His award winning work of the Philadelphia area and its people has been said to give the viewer the “feel of the city.”  Many Philadelphians living away from their native city of brotherly love look at his images and begin to miss all that is Philadelphia.

Take a moment and view all that this photographer has to offer you and view the images on this site to see the architecture, the people and the emotion that could be your home town. Take your time and see what being behind the camera in some form or another for over 40 years can do for you.

Michael is also the founder of BoudoirPhilly.com, an intimate portrait studio.
