MICHAEL SCOTT WHITSON
Mike is an award winning photographer and designer born and based in Philadelphia, PA. His large body of work traverses many genres and has gained acclaim all over the world.
He got his start taking pictures at skate parks and hardcore shows, and took his first darkroom class at Woodward Skate Camp at the age of 16. As soon as the paper hit the developer and an image began to emerge, his destiny was sealed.
Whether photographing super models, politicians, actors, executives, musicians, doctors, or the average citizen, he seeks to imbue each of his subjects with a larger-than-life persona, elevating them to superhero status… in pictures anyway.
Although he has developed a compelling and distinctive look all his own, Mike favors variety over a single narrow style, preferring to take on each project as its own separate entity, systematically concocting the most suitable aesthetics in order to fully convey the unique vision of each client and each job.
His mission and passion is to create extraordinary images that exhibit an intersection of fine art and commercial imagery, and instantly draw the viewer in, challenging their preconceived notions of love, life, and beauty.
