Michael Nelson Studio


Michael has been photographing for over 20 years, using the camera to narrate his vision of the people and the world around him. As a lieutenant Firefighter/EMT he experienced babies taking their first breaths in his arms as well others taking their last.

When he left the fire services to pursue photography, he found that he prefers to celebrate life in his images. Whether for himself or a client, he captures the beauty, the grace, the sensuality, the serenity, the joy and the humor in the faces and places he encounters.

Michael’s only fear is mediocrity, and his approach to life and work is the same — full of humor, spontaneity, and passion.
