Mike Mezeul: Looking Up – Images That Happen When You Connect With Nature

DCP and Texas Photographic Society are excited to present an evening lecture by Mike Mezeul II. Mike is a self-taught, internationally published photographer based out of Dallas, Texas. His work focuses primarily on landscape, night sky and severe weather photography, but he also shoots aviation, weddings, professional sports, live music and commercial advertising imagery. If you read that correctly, you now know he shoots everything under the sun, minus babies.

Mike’s work has been featured worldwide and has most recently been published in National Geographic Jr., BBC Magazine and Digital Camera Magazine. Picking up his first camera at the age of 15, Mike’s passion for photography developed while shooting film for 6 years before transitioning over to digital. Today, Mike shoots all Nikon gear and has recently licensed some of his work to the brand for their marketing.

Mike plans to talk about his imagery covering severe weather, northern lights, landscape, the Milky Way and more. Texas Photographic Society will give away a one-year Friend Membership which will include an original, signed print by Mike from their 2017 Print Program.
