Mike Perry is a 31 year old freelance architectural and cityscape photographer from Sacramento, California. Self-taught since getting his first dSLR in 2008, Mike has traveled all over the country, seeing places in different ways than he ever thought possible with the aid of his camera and various techniques. His repertoire consists of many different types of photography, but his true passion lies in cityscapes, landscapes, severe weather, and architecture. Mike enjoys taking small trips to the coast, San Francisco, and to the mountains on the weekends, trying to capture well composed, properly lit scenes in all situations. He enjoys trying to capture familiar landmarks and time-appropriate themes in interesting light and weather conditions. One of Mike's passions is to photograph the New York City skyline. Ever since visiting for the first time in 2010, he has become hooked on finding the right angles and the right light on the numerous skyscrapers that dot New York City.
As a Geography graduate from Cal State University Sacramento, Mike believes the scene in front of the lens not only offers the chance to see different viewpoints of the world and it's changing environments, but also the opportunity to analyze, observe and interpolate our physical and social world.
Mike is a stock photography contributor to both Getty and Alamy. His clients included prestigious architecture firms and various companies who have licensed his images for use on their websites and publications. Mike has had images included in two online stories on National Geographic and has shown work at multiple galleries in the Sacramento area.
