The Filmmaker

biophoto I’m Mike, or Mikey to my family and my wife. I live in a 160 year old house in Michigan with my wife and two dogs. I spend a lot of my free time in our dark, gnarly root cellar turned darkroom. I am a vintage camera nerd and I am officially out of space to store my collection. I would love to be your wedding videographer.

Film was what first made me fall in love with photography and videography. My wife is a photographer, so I have always lived among various piles of camera bodies and lenses, but digital photography didn’t hold an appeal to me initially. It wasn’t until I decided to see if I could get a roll of film through a thrift store Kodak Dualflex ii that I really started to fall in love with photography and, more specifically, film. I fired off a roll of black and white images of my nephews on a boat ride at my family’s cottage and loved the results. The images had a certain timelessness to them. I have had the bug ever since.
