Mike's passion is his landscape and illustrative work and he has been concentrating on this in recent years. His portfolio has a real depth which has won him awards in many international competitions, including four awards from six entries in 2010 and further awards this year in the National Geographic Photo Contest and the International Garden photographer of the Year competition. He is one of the few international professional photographers to be featured in the prestigious Phase One gallery.
Mike started his photography career in 1982 by talking his way into a job at the renowned Selfridges Portrait Studio without a portfolio or even owning a camera. Thrown in at the deep end to photograph Arab and Nigerian royalty, it was daunting introduction to photography but Mike thrived on it and was soon running the studio. Mike left Selfridges to start his portrait business, ACP, which has been the mainstay of his work for over 27 years.
Mike also teaches and lectures on landscape photography.
