For the last 5 years, Mickey has captured Bikers in the studio and on location providing a genuine look into the personalities and human being behind the big bad biker image portrayed by the general media and LEO community. His Beyond the Cut Portrait project has presented this continuing work in 3 print shows in San Diego as the featured photographer. The project was also recently featured in by Quick Throttle magazine with a 4-page spread and an Online gallery.
Mickeys current project is his Cuba Collection. Probably one of the poorest nations in the world is one of the richest photo locations you could be lucky enough to adventure in. Mickey travels with the Palm Beach Photo Centre at workshops.org visiting Cuba and brining this adventure to other photographers.
Just a little look into images that make me happy. Especially when they are printed and hung in my home or in yours.
Mickey's current Project is the Veterans Portrait Series, documenting Veteran's stories of service, currently focused on the World's Greatest Generation. The Veterans of World War II. Mickey interviews each Veteran collecting and writing their stories to remember these amazing historic figures for generations to come. Mickey has collected and displayed images and stories from 96 warriors who at one point singed the dotted line when our country needed their sacrifice of service most.
Mickey is a Portrait Photographer and retired Navy Chief Photographer (PHC) who lives in San Diego after 24 years of active service.
He is currently traveling, shooting, and occasionally teaching for ACME Educational, Maine Media Workshops, West Palm Beach Photo Centre, and the Madeline Island School of the arts.
