Hi. My name is Mike and I am a geologist hence the online handle. My father gave me the shutterbug (and fishing bug) at an early age. He carried a camera and took photos on all of our family excursions and I continued the tradition. I honed my photographic skills while working as a geologist in wilderness areas such as Alaska and while volunteering time as a photojournalist. I turned semi-pro about ten years ago mainly supplying stock images to various publishers but my true love is nature photography. My goal is to capture the beauty, drama, and variety of our world when given the opportunity, to celebrate and enjoy what nature has given us, and to share this with the rest of the world.
I have fished in many different locals and my experience ranges from big game saltwater gear to ultra light tackle in small mountain streams, but I like catching fish on my own flies the best. I also putter around with woodworking and other…
