About Me

I have been photographing since 2001 and have been in search of my own voice as a photographer. You can see my journey through my portfolio images culminating in my latest work "Cunningham's Oddities" realizing I can make the impossible possible. I love using photography to create my own worlds where anything is possible and nothing is impossible. We are only limited by our own imagination.

I am looking to create high production photo-shoots and welcome models that are interested in doing something creative, character based and has access to their own costumes. I do not pay models please do not contact me with your rates. If you are willing to do a trade shoot then PLEASE get in touch with me. I love photography and I want to make some amazing photographs with amazing models.

All models are required to sign a model release form on the day of the shoot. The copyright is maintained by me, the photographer, however the model is welcome to use the final images for her pay site, portfolio samples, contests, etc.


You find me on the following social media sights:

Classy slutty and dirty hot. Those would be the words I would use to someone if they asked me about Nightmare Photography. Mike’s portraits can make your brain hurt, in a good way. You will find yourself trying to figure out how he could come up with a certain pose or you may be trying to figure out if one of his subjects looks sexy or dead. But, through all this mind eff, one thing is for certain – you’re going to feel something and you’re going to like it. And, really isn’t that what art is all about... making you think through the enjoyment.
-Mistress Mwahaha – Nightmare Photography subject and appreciator

"Michael is concoction of punk rock, boudoir and a holga camera. I remember being super excited to find a photograph of myself in the mail that he had developed himself. He's a real artist."
-Krystal Becker
