Michael Gauthier


While it may look like I should have a lifetime of experience, my photography career is only a few short years old, after a previous life in the computer industry.

For the first few years, I took advantage of pretty much every opportunity that came my way to take pictures. I worked for the local newspaper, shooting everything from ribbon cutting ceremonies to weekend festivals; I took thousands of hockey, baseball, and football photos for professional and semi-pro teams; I took thousands of kids’ photos for the local football, soccer, baseball, basketball, and hockey teams; I helped numerous brides celebrate their special days with wedding photography; and I fell in love with the performing arts, covering hundreds of concerts and special events. All of this led me to a focus on people – and a desire to take the very best photo possible of my clients. There is no better way to do this than with a portrait studio, and the “hand-painted” products that I am offering take my humble images to new, breath-taking heights.

I love what I do, and I sincerely hope that we have the opportunity to work together to create some truly memorable wall-art for your home.
