Since 2013, Michael has immersed himself in the realm of travel photography, dedicating his available time to framing shots in iconic destinations across Europe and beyond. His journey has been marked by a relentless pursuit of honing both his photography skills and distinctive editing style. In a pivotal decision in 2022, Michael transitioned from his primary occupation to fully embrace the life of a professional photographer.
