I've been a successful commercial photographer, author, educator and film producer since 1980. I understand that students learn in different ways and I strive to accommodate these differences. I've owned and operated large commercial studios in Burbank, CA, where I did business with entertainment industry leaders: Warner Bros, Universal, Paramount and Disney. Disney especially punched my dance card for over 20 years. We love the mouse at our house. Currently I work exclusively as a location photographer and film producer. Throughout I’ve taught at various private and public educational institutions, wrote my first book in 2009 and am currently writing my second. I’ve mentored many young photographers over the years and am thrilled for their successes. Thanks for reading. Michael
