Michael E. Myers
I'm a big fan of "grow your own"......subjects, that is!
Michael’s larger-than-life canvas and metal prints invite closer exploration of the beauty and imperfections each image reveals. He combines nature and art to create his awe-inspiring photographs.
Simple arrangements belie the painstaking process by which specimens are selected and arranged, yet draw attention to the intricate patterns and complex designs that may otherwise go unnoticed. Michael’s proprietary photographic technique, in which ordinary flowers, fruits and vegetables are removed from their natural setting and flooded with an abundance of light, reveals hidden details and extraordinary beauty. He eschews typical rules and overexposes his subjects, many of which have been grown in his award-winning garden. Further defying modern photographic conventions, Michael does very little photo editing, preferring instead to devote his time and energy to creating the ideal image.
Michael has been a passionate photographer for over twenty years. Graduating at the top of his class from Antonelli Institute of Graphic Design and Photography, he was honored to win the Outstanding Portfolio Award and further honed his skills in a busy commercial photo studio. He also developed a deep knowledge and keen appreciation for horticulture working in the family landscaping business for many years. An avid gardener, Michael was awarded First Place in the General Garden Category for the Borough of Boyertown by the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation. His vision for Steadfast Imaging is to create enduring images that bring joy for generations to come.
