About Michael Stephen

Hello, Thank you for showing interest in my work.  Here’s what I’m all about and how I got into photography.

I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida by a fantastic woman. I had worked many years in the financial industry and I was looking for something different. I was looking for something that would stir my soul, fill my life with energy and purpose. Little did I know that I would find all that are more with my camera.

I had always enjoyed great photography and without any formal training or lessons, I purchased a camera and decided to see what life had in store for me.  My first shoot was magical. I found inspiration, purpose and energy in a way that I had never experienced before. I knew this was what I was intended to do.

Today I feel the same energy, purpose and inspiration as I did then. I work with beautiful, kind, and gracious people. l connect with others to help them to achieve their goals. My vision and choice to move on from the financial world has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. 

I currently live in South Beach. I love what I do and will never retire.
