Thawing out from Winter

Hey everybody,

Since I've been back from Wyoming and Montana life has been pretty nonstop. In between my normal life with my multiple jobs I've also applied to numerous photo opportunities, started working alongside more Portland-based photographers and have been shooting pretty much every day. It's been so hectic that I haven't been able to slow down much to update the site and let folks know what I've been up to, but I think it's worth it considering the work I've created the last few months.

As you can see I've been posting some work from another series on the site, and I'll continue to do so as that one and another I've been working on are developing. They're both film based and are a variant of my main project Dead Cities. One of which, 'It only feels strange here to me', will be available in print form on May 7th, 2018. If you'd like to preorder a copy you can visit the store here. Everyone that preorders will receive a small print as well from my main project.

Other than that I have a few photo competitions coming up that I'm very excited and nervous for. Lately I've been challenging myself (and also being challenged by my mentors and peers) to experiment with new formats, development types and focus. I'm really excited to share what I've come up with so far as I think that I've made great strides creatively since coming back from my residency in Wyoming.

I hope the spring is treating you well and maybe I'll see you out in the world someday.
Mike
