Mike's photos that have been published by newspapers, magazines or books. Thanks for looking and feel free to comment. You may have noticed that there haven't been any pictures posted to this gallery lately. I was recently elected to the position of Chairman of the Jefferson County Election Commission in Arkansas and I was told by the newspaper I have been shooting for they thought it would be a conflict of interest if I took that position and they would not be able to use my pictures while I was on the commission, I had to think about it. After consideration, I decided it was more important for me work to ensure that the elections would be fair and impartial and eliminate some of the problems that have occurred over the last few years. While there may not be additional photos added to this gallery during my tenure I will still be taking plenty of photos and posting on this site both for your and my enjoyment and for you to purchase if you desire. If you need a photographer for an event, please contact me a firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to thank the Pine Bluff Commercial, SEA Life Magazine, Larry Fugate former editor, Ralph Fitzgerald Photographer and the folks at both for the opportunity to improve my skills while providing them with the best pictures available. Feel free to contact me as I give private photography lessons in a six week course for only $150 per student and teach photography at the Shepherd's Center spring and fall with the next session beginning March 6, 2015. Thanks to each and everyone of you.
