About Michael - MPLowell Photography

Hi there and welcome to my site! Thanks for taking the time to view some of my favorite pictures! I live in the great Pacific Northwest.

I was very fortunate to travel the world as part of my job, to many far-off places that gave me a sense of how fortunate I was to visit these places and how small the world is when we stop and see all walks of life and people around this planet.

I started on my journey photographing many years ago using my folks Fuji 35MM film camera. I got into digital photography when I was traveling in Singapore and I purchased the ‘new’ and very small Casio Exilim which had only a 1.3-megapixel, fixed 37 mm equiv. lens, internal RAM and SD/MMC storage slot, 1.6" TFT LCD and could take still images and movie clips. It was only 86 g (3 oz) and a little bigger than a credit card! I was hooked ever since!

Now retired, I can dedicate more time to my photography. Currently I use a Nikon D750 DSLR and a DX D3200 DSLR with multiple FX/DX (Nikon, Tamron, and Nikkor) lenses for my journeys. I use a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V 18.2 MP digital camera for discrete street scenes and rougher terrain areas.

As a constant learning photographer, I have created this site to collect, catalog and share some of my favorite photos and journeys. I recently ‘cleaned up’ a lot of my images. As I’ve gain in my craft, my eye is less forgiving to some of my older shots and cameras used. So I hope you enjoy the ‘new look’ of my site.

I focus these days on wildlife, birds, nature, and landscape and travel photography. but always trying to improve my craft and have been branching out to other venue specialties like portraits and phot journalism.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my site. I hope to continue to share good thoughts, good photos and memories with you all.

Remember to….’Capture a place, Capture a moment, Capture life!’
