Michael Petrizzo has been a photographic artist for almost 30 years. His works hang in homes and offices coast to coast and in Europe. He has placed second in several international competitions competing with over 20,000 other artists.. He exhibits in art galleries on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Arizona, and Connecticut. Michael is adept at the marriage of traditional photography and digital techniques using the latest technology to create beautiful works of art. His style varies from straight photography to digital "oil" paintings. Michael says, "It is my view that if Ansel Adams were alive today, he would embrace modern technology to create his masterpieces." In that vein, Michael loves to use any tool at his disposal to create something that evokes emotion through the viewing of "eye candy." He is also a portrait photographer who specializes in families, seniors, and children. He resides on Cape Cod, Mass.
