About - Michael Borchard

I grew up playing outside in Southern California, camera in hand. Heavily influenced by a strong connection with the ocean and natural world, my personal photography often examines the ways that humans interact with their surrounding environments, both natural and man-made. As a photographer, I am repeatedly invited to step into the lives of my subjects and see the world from their perspectives; for that I am eternally grateful. Nothing brings me greater joy than creating imagery that brings the narratives of people and places to life. 


I've had the privilege of working for commercial and editorial clients around the globe, and I am forever thankful for the wonderfully powerful tool of photography. On assignment, I bring with me thorough organizational and professional skills, coupled with a deep-rooted passion for creating stunning and unique imagery. 


I am currently based in Southern California and available for freelance inquiries. When home, you’ll likely find me up early or out late chasing light in the mountains and oceans.

If you're considering getting in touch, please do!
