Mike Maez

From the flight deck of a Navy carrier to the streets of Hong Kong, Mike Maez is constantly in pursuit of delivering world-class imagery for a number of international clients. He has photographed a wide range of subjects including celebrities and products, but has always been captivated by the automobile.

Launching his career in automotive photography from the editor's desk at an enthusiast publication titled "Modified Magazine," Mike eventually transitioned to the commercial and catalogue-style shoots he is known for today.

With a creative mind for lighting and a critical eye for composition, Mike has experience both in studio and on location using the latest in lighting and digital tech. SoCal based and available for travel worldwide, Mike is just as comfortable working on a large-scale production as he is one-on-one as long as the images are great and everybody goes home happy.
