From the first time I picked up a camera at the age of 10, I knew what I was meant to be, A photographic artist. After graduating from The Center for Creative Studies with a Bachelors degree in Applied Photography, I worked with some of the most well known photographers in the country, Andre LaRoach, Chris Clore and Mike Nacoric.
These internships led to my first published works Images of the Ford Contour and Mercury Mystique for a Delphi Electronics advertisement in People magazine.
While visiting a friend in the Grand Rapids area I met the love of my life,Tori, which brought me to Grand Rapids. In 1996 Tori and I opened the doors to M-Buck Studio in the heart of downtown. With clients ranging from the Amway Corporation, Grand Rapids Magazine, Michigan Golf Magazine, Scott Christopher, Wolfgang Pucks, Spartan Motors and a host of other companies, the studio continues to grow and change with our ever changing photographic needs of the digital age. In 2018 We both have gotten our UAS Drone Pilot license and are looking forward to all the new adventures we can have with our drones. Wether you need an image of your new menu items, a new product, lifestyle portraits, aerials of your property or just a high end family portrait, Tori and I we be there to produce the highest quality images to support our clients needs.
In 2016 we celebrated our 20th anniversary here in Grand Rapids and look ward to the next 20.
What a professional photographer Mike is! We've had everything from family photos to professional photos done by M-Buck and we couldn't' be happier. Highly recommended group in West Michigan! More...
