Michael started taking pictures as a kid! A family friend gifted him with a standard 35 mm camera which he used to take pictures of his favorite toys and family.


It wasn't until taking a seasonal position with The Picture People that he realized his passion. At the time, the company was shifting focus to a more contemporary style which he excelled at; quickly becoming a highly requested photographer and trainer, being trained by the company's Master Photographers. 

HotShots Photography was founded a few days after he left PP and has been growing ever since. The team may have changed a few times but the core vision has remained.
