I am a humanitarian photographer whose passions and concerns have inspired me to create visual images that capture the human spirit of “real life” around the world. My love for travel and photography — combined with my respect of people and strong sense of social awareness — has brought me to this place!
My visual images will make you think, make you wonder, spark a reaction! I believe all people should be treated with compassion, sensitivity and integrity. I am committed to making a difference for others by generating greater awareness of the world’s ever–growing social welfare issues.
My photography will help inspire and motivate people to help make a change through outreach, education and fundraising. It is my way of creating a more caring and compassionate world. My own personal desire when photographing people is to show a sense of intimacy and love of faces. I prefer to get up close and personal.
Michele has received recognition as a travel photographer including Travel & Leisure – Top 10 Travel Photographers 2012, Women In Photography 2012 – Honorable Mention, and placement of her photos in publicity campaigns for prominent international NGOs and other foundations for social change.
