I started photography in 1979 using my father's Nikkormat SLR . He also taught me how to develop and process film. After years in a darkroom, I switched to digital in 2006.


This year I was awarded Master Photographer by the Bowie Crofton Camera Club, becoming 1 of 5 Master Photographers in the club’s 50 year existence. Mike has also been awarded Master of Monochrome Photography in the Arundel Camera Club.


I am an amateur photographer not professional. I do this for fun. While my favorite subjects are wildlife, I like to shoot just about anything.
