Mike Pham is a California based photographer who focuses on adventure, fashion, portraiture, travel, and commercial lifestyle. Mike effortlessly and authentically blends the drama of undeniable landscapes with the human experience. Influenced by a life of music and culture, Mike has played in Orange County based punk-rock and blue-grass bands his whole life and loves the inspiration that world of hard-knocks and comradery breeds. As a collaborative artist, Mike loves to go on the road with others, searching for that raw moment, that always results in THAT shot. Open to exploring new places and trying different techniques, Mike wants to see what’s real in a moment. He looks for pain, just as much as beauty, because it is all part of the human story.
