About Mike


My photography career started when I took my first photojournalism class at The University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh in the spring of 1992.  I continued with more photojournalism classes which eventually led to a position as the Assistant Photo Editor of the college newspaper, "The Advance Titan".  After graduation I worked as a part-time staff photographer for the daily newspaper "The Oshkosh Northwestern" before leaving photography for several years.

In January 2008 I started my own business, Focal Point Photography LLC.  After shooting mostly weddings for a few years I switched to focusing on interiors and architecture.  Using a combination of natural and artificial lighting I combine multiple exposures to creatively produce both interior and exterior images.

When I am not behind the camera (or computer monitor), I enjoy listening to music ('80s rule!), watching movies, running, playing basketball and spending time with my family.
