Current projects involve travel within Ontario, and target wildlife as his main photographic subject matter, with an increased interest for birds, butterflies, amphibians and reptiles, and the ocassional breathtaking sunrise. Mike's photographic journeys materialize around his home in Oakville, Ontario, in his ongoing quest for moments worth capturing, printing and admiring in the years to come.
Mike also holds a diploma in Wildlife and Forestry Conservation from the International Career School of Canada.
