Forward Exposure | About

Hi there, I'm Mike Banno..

I started getting into photography around 2004.  My origin story may not be as epic as the latest Marvel movie.. However, it feels mighty to me.  It started as a creative vent, but something else emerged; self confidence.  I never had any hobbies or did much outside of work and school, but all of a sudden I had this method of communication that was so much louder than my own words.  Sharing images brought joy and excitement to me and those around me.  Ultimately that's what it's all about, passion!  I've always been an empathetic, passionate and emotional person and this art has allowed me to share it with the world.

 

When I'm not out shooting I love eating way too much food and socializing with friends and family.  I have an awesome dog named Apollo who gets a lot of love and attention, he's a total flirt.  I'm a bit of a nerd and enjoy video games & board games, fantasy & sci-fi movies too.

 

I appreciate you taking time to learn more about who I am and what I do.  Feel free to take a look around the various Wedding, Seniors, and Family galleries and enjoy some images and contact me anytime with any questions!

 

Looking forward to working with you soon!
