Michael is a professional photographer living and working in Philadelphia. He specializes in clean, thoughtful imagery that evokes feeling for, and from, his subjects. When not behind the lens, his interests range from building the ultimate single speed bicycle to riding New Jersey's fabled surf on a classic longboard. When pressed to name his artistic inspirations, he cryptically says, "I am inspired by photographers of the past, and motivated by photographers of the present. God, that's hokey, isn't it?" Michael has shot for Anthem magazine, Plan B Magazine, Anti- Records, Ace Fu Records and Philadelphia Weekly.
