PROJECTS & WORK

His personal projects investigate responses to the darkness and peculiarities of modern life. He makes portraits of unique characters, explores the strange life of the city and the beauty in people & nature. 

PORTRAITS
'Not Just You' explores the unique characters in his life and city. All have their struggles and success, both in life and mental health, and he reminds you that you are not alone. Choosing not to share specific struggles, you never can tell what anyone is going through or what they have overcome.

PROJECTS
As of 2020 he has continued to work on his projects 'Industrial Nightmares', looking into the eerie menace of illuminated objects fighting the inky night, and 'Modern Loneliness' addressing feelings of anxiety, imprisonment and isolation in a connected world.  'Dreams in Isolation' exploring dream states, vulnerability, beauty, passion and memory during so much enforced time alone.

LIVE MUSIC
His love for live music began over 20 years ago, which grew into a desire to capture the atmosphere and excitement of live music events in sweaty pubs, clubs, large venues and music festivals. Mike currently shoots for Brighton grunge band Preacher and covers assignments contributing to long established Brighton culture site Brighton Source

He's shot a huge variety of mainstream and underground music artists including: Kraftwerk, Disclosure, Johnny Marr, Chvrches, Kylie, Grace Jones, Years & Years, The Charlatans, Rag N Bone Man, Public Enemy, Andy C, Brian Wilson, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Roots Manuva, Craig Charles, Suede, Alt-J, DJ Premier, KRS-ONE,  Future Islands, Young Fathers, Sage Francis, Mos Def and more.
