Born in Australia and living in Los Angeles, Mike has always been creative. Banned from having coloring books as a kid (he was encouraged to draw what he wanted to color), Mike fell in love with all things artistic at a very young age. Lucky enough to split his life between his two passions, by day Mike is an Animator at DreamWorks, working on blockbuster hit films including How to Train your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda, whilst spending the rest of his time exploring his new home in the US taking photos.

From the deposable cameras as a kid to his first Canon DSLR (400d / Rebel Xti), Mike got his love for photography from his Dad and Grandfather who have been a keen photographers their whole lives. Mike has used point and shoot style Canon G12 style camera, the Fuji x series and his forever camera, the Leica M.
