I'm Michael

I'm first a husband and father of 2 boys. I have been a professional photographer for 16 years, but more importantly, photography has been my passion for as long as I can remember, and that is a plus quality which my customers appreciate, as I genuinely care about producing excellent work.

I was born and raised in France and I've always been fascinated by Photography – a discipline which maybe comes naturally to me from my artistic family composed of a pastel artist and a sculptor. My uncle, an amateur photographer, initiated my interest very early on as well. 

I am simply fascinated with capturing light, there’s just something timeless and magical in the photography process that attracted me since the very beginning; this ability to stop time and show something most would have missed otherwise.

 I earned a degree in Industrial Science and Technology, but decided to pursue my love for Photography in Florida instead. I have been shooting Portraiture, Landscapes and Product Photography over the past 16 years and it has been very gratifying!

My work has been featured by many publications including “Good Housekeeping” “Orlando Homes + Garden,” “Land and Homes,” and others.

I also do real estate photography mostly on the Space Coast with VHT, the leader in visual marketing services specially designed for the real estate industry.

I'm an outdoor person so in my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family to all the wonderful locations our planet has to offer.

I am also a huge astronomy nerd, so whenever the weather permits, I'm actively photographing the night sky and all its wonderful secrets, revealed only after hours of exposures. Check it out here.
