More about Mike Z....

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting new people. Working with restaurants and festivals allows me to meet thousands of people at a time and be able to hear each unique story and remember them by the picture I take. The amazing thing about photography is that each picture tells a story, but that story is different for each individual who sees it. Photography has allowed me to be able to express myself in a way I am too scared to or am not able to otherwise.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

My photography receives the largest compliments for being able to capture amazing candids instead of just pictures of artists. Those in the crowd would rather have a memory of them and their friends other than a certain artist. With food photography, I like to spice things up with proper background and bokeh and make sure the colors pop in post editing.

My favorite piece of advice to give people is "Find one hobby that makes you money, find one hobby that keeps you active & find a hobby that keeps you creative"
