I am a longtime resident of Ketchikan, and a photographer whose primary subject is the scenic beauty of the area in which I live. It is my hope that my work expresses the zen-like calm I feel when creating my images.

My roots are in traditional film photography and darkroom work. My current work, however, is entirely digital. I rely on one camera and one lens, and I frequently use High Dymanic Range techniques, often combined with panoramic stitching, to overcome the shortcomings of my equipment and to better express what I see and feel.

I find constant inspiration in the subtle tones and shifting shapes of clouds, in reflections on calm water, in the sounds of creeks and shorebirds.

I am represented locally by Starboard Frames and Gifts. Prints are available there, or can be requested through my website at http://www.mikegatesphotography.com
