It’s hard to say which passion struck Michael first, aviation or photography. It’s easy to say that he followed them both as often as he could, taking ever opportunity to study both fields. Limited time and resources meant that it took a while before he was able to combine the two loves – but once he did he never looked back and took every chance he had to see and shoot everything he could. A former member of the U. S. Air Force, and a current employee of a major U S airline, Michael is traveling and attending air shows and military displays around the globe. He was extremely pleased to have two of his images selected as finalists in the Air & Space Magazine photo contest last year and is striving to be published soon.
