Mike Baker, Professional Photographer

Mike Baker is an award-winning, published fine art photographer based in the Chicagoland area. Mike began his photographic adventures while in the military (USAF), (stationed in Berlin, Germany) merely to document his travels throughout Europe.

Since then, Mike he has developed a keen eye for travel, landscape, and cityscape photography. His approach to photography can be best described as “Elevating the Ordinary.” Mike takes what many would deem ‘ordinary subjects’ and makes them extraordinary as he searches for distinguishing patterns, shapes, light, and shadow. His specialty includes creating imagery in monochrome (black and white).

Mike’s work has been exhibited in art galleries, published in coffee table books, magazines, art shows, and has won awards in international competition. His work has been added to private collections and he continues to create new work. Mike continues to share his passion for photography via presentations and photographic workshops.
