BEHIND THE LENS

I fell in love with photography my senior year of high school.  I had taken a media production class, hoping to get a head start on my college major - mass communications.  There was something wildly fascinating about clicking the shutter on my Pentax K1000 ... I could freeze time!  There in that thin piece of celluloid was a mere fraction of a second, plucked from the continuum.  And I could hold on to it - forever! 

I would take a job at a Glamour Shots photo studio a few years later. I started off doing hair and make-up, then photography, and eventually I would take over the store manager position.   That was an experience, kind of a fast food version of portrait photography.  I learned a lot - and it certainly was fun! 

My camera was never far from sight, I continued to photograph anything that crossed the path of my lens - friends, trips, cars, you name it!   Once social media and digital photography emerged, I realized - now's my chance to share some of that with the rest of the world.

In 2019 an opportunity presented itself, to jump head first into a dream, my own studio.  So I opened Chase Nevada Michaels Photography LLC that October in my new adopted hometown of Hamilton Township, New Jersey!  It's been an AMAZING experience thus far - and can't wait to see what waits ahead!
