JAG Featured Member Artist
Michael was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. He has been photographing Florida wildlife and nature for over 25 years. As an avid outdoorsman, he attempts to capture nature at her most defining moments. From the delicate butterfly perched on a flower, to the prehistoric gator lurking in the swamp, from the tranquility of the marsh at sunrise, to the bald eagle capturing his prey. He hopes that those viewing his photography will see the wonder of nature through his eyes.
Michael’s photographs are on display in many corporate collections and local galleries and have been published in The Daily Mail, The Daily Telegraph, and The Mirror in Great Britain, as well as other international media.
Those of you who know Michael well , know that besides being a Wildlife and Nature photographer, he has also been a woodworker most of his life. He uses a combination of local woods, driftwood from the river, sinker cypress, unusual woods he discovers, alligator skin, and sometimes exotic veneers. Each piece he creates dictates what material will be used. Everything is signed and dated, and built to last for generations to come.
Michael is a new member of the Jacksonville Artists' Guild!
