Michael Berger, M.F.A, is a designer and photographer with 25 years of experience in the design industry including working with and directing world class photographers. Using image, texture and color he builds images from the ground up for moods.

The camera has afforded him the opportunity to meet people and travel the world. He has photographed rock stars and people on the fringe of society. It has taught him to enjoy people – to really look at everyone and search for who they are in that moment. He is not so interested in who they project on to him but who they can’t hide from him – that split moment when the weight of their persona is lifted and they are revealed.
