About The Photographer

Michael Higgins is a Native Southern Californian who has been shooting photographs since a very young age, winning numerous photography awards. Michael has shot it all, from people to landscapes, products and nudes, food and industrial, weddings and architectural, under-water and aerials, commercial and fine art, publicity and advertising, black & white and color, realism and abstract… for Michael, he will tell you emphatically, whatever he is shooting, “it is all about the light and the composition.” This is what you notice in his spectacular photography.

Formally trained at the internationally renowned Art Center, College of Design, in Pasadena, California, Michael studied photography, film, art direction, packaging, design, and illustration. Along with his degree in Photography at Art Center, Michael also has a doctorate degree in Business Administration. Michael’s career has been primarily focused around bringing together the visual arts with business marketing. Today, Michael’s spectacular photography is used in editorial and advertising, and as fine art in galleries and private collections.

Michael is an entrepreneur. In addition to his photography business, he created a beautiful flying magazine showcasing spectacular aerial and travel photography in its pages. Currently Michael is the Director of Photography for Flying Adventures magazine, a lifestyle travel magazine for owners and passengers of private aircraft. Here, Michael art directs and edits, and shoots himself, landscape and aerial photography for the magazine. Michael is a licensed pilot (land and sea planes, and instrument rated) and owns and flies various aircraft. Michael has developed a methodology for composing photographs while flying airplanes himself, allowing him to have total control over capturing the exact composition for spectacular in-the-air photography. Michael has traveled to many parts of the world, obtaining a foreign pilots license where needed, capturing interesting perspectives of in-the-air aerial views most people rarely get to experience. Michael’s spectacular photography has been published in major newspapers and magazines, including the Los Angeles Times and National Geographic magazine. Many of his photographs have been used as cover photos and large feature story opening photographs in national and international publications. Michael is available for commissioned assignments. Outdoor landscapes, travel, people and aerials are his primary work. His photography is also available for private collection. His work is shown in galleries, displayed in businesses and homes, and held in private collections by serious art collectors and people who simply appreciate his spectacular photography and want it for their personal enjoyment.
