Livin da Dream

I am so fortunate to have been shooting in Hollywood for over 30 years as a Motion Picture and Television Stills Photographer. I have contributed my skills on countless Episodic projects as well as Features and New Media content. 

When I started back on NCIS in 2003, I never imagined I would be involved shooting on over 300 episodes! Not only did we as a Cast and Crew reach this epic milestone, it was accomplished being the most viewed television show in the world 2 years in a row! I'm Livin da Dream!

I'm a trainer for KelbyOne, a contributing writer for Photofocus, and a member of the International Cinematographers Guild I.A.T.S.E. Local 600.

"Mike is one of Hollywood's best photographers."
Dennis Smith, Director of over 50 episodes of NCIS.

"No photographer's work is seen by more people than Mike's work worldwide."
Scott Bourne, Founder of Photofocus.




Please feel free to contact me to discuss any opportunities with your upcoming photo projects.

From my extensive years as a professional photographer shooting on Hollywood sets, I enjoy sharing my experiences with those interested from various educational institutions to corporate organizations. I'm available to educate, encourage and advance students and attendees in the areas of Photography, Photoshop, and Lightroom.

I can be reached below. I look forward to speaking with you.

 Your Images will be Epic!

Learn the Hollywood way of lighting your images to make them turn and have depth. I’ve been shooting celebrities on Hollywood sets for over 30 years. Not only will I teach you how to light, you’ll learn the etiquette and skills only found working on a Hollywood set. I’ll share the secrets that will keep you shooting on the set and not have you asked to leave. You’ll learn how to create and actually see the light you control. You will be introduced to the tools and techniques used regularly on shows like NCIS and NCIS: LA and apply them to your own photo shoots. I promise you will start lighting differently once you attend my Hollywood Lighting workshop. My lighting workshop takes place in my working studio, not a classroom.

Space will be limited, so sign-up today for the 2 day Hollywood Lighting Workshop.
