More about Mike Z....
What do you love about your job?
I like solving problems...how to make a plain jar look elegant, how to light an interior... a friend and fellow photographer best described it as; "taking a fantasy view of a plain reality, turning it into a reality to photograph it, so some one can say "what a fantasy..."
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I do my best to make sure everything I shoot is special in some way or another... the challenge is finding that special thing across a wide variety of subjects & assignments...
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I've been fortunate to have received over 45 ADDY awards, local & regional, from the local chapters of the American Advertising Federation, while working with some of the best creatives in the area.
Additionally, I've received my share of awards, thanks & various accolades from charitable org's. and others.
