Michael is an international, award-winning nature photographer based on O`ahu, Hawai`i. Specializing in underwater, animal, and landscape photography, Michael makes great efforts to capture and share moments most never get to experience. Completely self-taught, it wasn’t until he moved to Hawai`i in 2010 that he found his passion for shooting underwater. Cetaceans and Sea Turtles are among his favorites to capture, however, as long as it’s near the sea, he’s happy. Michael’s work has garnered multiple awards, contest wins, and recognition and has been featured internationally by: The Smithsonian Institute, National Geographic, Wyland Foundation, Hawaiian Airlines, Hawaii Magazine, Huffington Post, PADI, Kenko-Tokina, Knekt USA, Viewbug, Keiko Conservation, Hawaii News Now, Empty the Tanks Hawaii, Animal Rights Hawaii, Surfing The Nations + many more.
