About Mike

Hi and thank you so much for visiting my web site!

I have been passionate about photography since I was about 10 years old. At that time my Dad had a Nikon F that he bought while he was in the Navy, and I'll never forget the first moment he let me hold that camera and look through the lens. I believe it was at my sister's soccer game and there was a big 300mm lens mounted on that tank of a camera. Well, I was hooked from that moment on. 

My early inspiration came from photographers like Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ernst Haas and Sebastiao Salgado. I always had a strong desire to become a photojournalist and world-traveling adventure photographer and worshipped a lot of national Geo photographers as well, like Steve McCurry, Frans Lanting, David Alan Harvey and Sam Abell. I also loved the work of Galen Rowell and met him on a few occasions.

These days I consider Arthur Meyerson to be a mentor and friend, and I have had the privilege of attending a few of his workshops. 

I have never been one to choose a narrow niche in photography, and maybe that's a mistake, but also why I always called myself a travel photographer. Travel photography demands that the photographer be adept at shooting a lot of subjects: people, cityscapes, landscapes, events etc. I suppose this is also why I was drawn to photojournalism in general. 

These days, being a Dad with a 6 year-old daughter, I don't get to travel as much as I would like, and I'm starting to narrow my focus down to destinations near my home town of San Jose, California. In particular, I expect to create more images of coastal California. So I think you'll begin to see more nature/landscape images show up here on the site. Lately, I have been shooting with a 6x12cm medium format panoramic camera made by DaYi, and going the "old school" route with that camera has been very rewarding.

As far as my background, I was an English major at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and I also received a degree in Visual Journalism from Brooks Institute of Photography. I was a photographer for the Santa Barbara News-Press and I also attended the Eddie Adams Barnstorm workshop in New York back in 2002. 

I hope you like the work you see on the site, and please feel free to get in touch with me for any reason. 

Best wishes,

Mike Weiser
