About Me

I’m a published Bay Area based photographer specializing in abstract boudoir and nude model photography.



My background is pretty simple - Twenty years ago I was a typical teenager growing up in Las Vegas, land of the implied nude. For me, a pocketed film camera was just as important to have on my person 24/7 as the keys to my getaway Volkswagen were. In these years I amassed an impressive collection of prints ranging from random parking lot fender benders to flirty pictures of girlfriends, the latter I’m assuming had the greater influence on my current work.



My day job focuses on creating informative content and review in the games industry. I aim to do the same in photography by shooting regularly for my Patreon and use the content as a means to create tutorials and behind-the-scenes breakdowns of the techniques I use both during the shoot and afterwards in post. I also hold monthly live editing sessions and occasionally drop a smaller compositing timelapses or quick tutorial video.

"Mike is so much fun to work with! We shot beautiful art nudes in a rustic Airbnb that he found in San Antonio. He has a wonderful eye for vintage style and provided wardrobe pieces that added so much to our photos. He's easy to work with, kind and accomodating, and gives clear direction when needed. We also had excellent conversation throughout and plenty of laughs! I'm so glad we finally got to work together during my stay in Texas and I'd be so happy to shoot with him again!" Read less
