Director of Photography
Mike’s parent’s amateur photography was a large part of growing up in their house. State of the art cameras were a constant, (including his favorite Canon AE-1 film camera), and it was something he learned to appreciate. Mike would go on to study photography and communication at two colleges, Plattsburgh State in NY and at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
“Frenchy” became a professional photojournalist right out of college in Honolulu, and photography helped him work his way around the country from Vermont to North Carolina, eventually settling in the DC area where he began freelancing as both a news photographer and as a grip, gaffer, photographer,and editor. Mike has worked with many of the major television news organizations, independent film companies, government agencies and nonprofits on projects ranging from news events to short films, documentaries to live event coverage. He’s been up close with a few Presidents of the United States, survived hurricanes and tornadoes, shot a segment for Miss Universe and has been dangled from helicopters on more than one occasion.
Awards include ACE, AP, NYSBA, Murrow, NPPA and several Emmy awards.
