My name is Michael and I am a photographer by trade, but I prefer to call myself an artist.  I was born and raised in a small northern California town called, Sebastopol.  It was the 80’s and 90’s, and a sleepy little town.  Three of four families drove a 1985 Volvo, and everyone had a hacky sack.  I attended the nearby community college, where I tried every artform in the book.  I was 90% through a well respected culinary program when my life changed forever.  Two dear friends and myself went to live in the United Kingdom, for a work abroad program.  Let me tell you, my mind exploded.  I had never been exposed to so many beautiful things, cultures, foods, history, and architecture.  I wanted to remember it all, so I took pictures, pictures, pictures, and that is where my love of photography was born.  I came home, changed my major, and eventually attended Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara California.  I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Commercial Photography, in early 2009.  I have done many things since then, and loved them, but my love of the camera has always remained.  I hope you will join me on my journey as an artist in NYC, working together to create something beautiful.  Thank you, and welcome to Michael David Photography.
