Who Am I? As a person, as an artist, as a brother, as a son, as I am..
This is me and I am Mike G. (I may or may not be a rapper, I haven't decided yet.)
As I am now, this 24 year old born and raised in Omaha, NE I feel absolutely astounding about life in it's entirety. Well, outside of all of the current events that are so disheartening that it's hard to even discuss but that's not why you're here. Let me give you a run down on who I am, what I am about, and overall a little in look on who I am as a person.
First and foremost as a photographer I am fortunate enough to share and capture special, wonderful, lovely, sublime and every other imposing adjective of moments with wonderful people!
Here goes the typical, who is this guy. Junior at UNO, I've been there for 5 1/2 years because I wasn't sure on what major I'd like to give my thousands of dollars to so I divvied it up between colleges. Great samaritan right? I also, am a part of a sneaker group, S.O.A.P. standing for Sneakers Over Any Proposition. Cool eh? I am the Vice President of the group and I love it! Humble brag. No, but truly I am proud of all of the team from Christian aka Gilly, Luis Sandoval, Tre Howe and the rest of the crew! We are a family assembled due to sneakers! We fight, argue, and etc like we are brothers and it's one of the best organizations I am a part of. Documentaries, sneaker events, and outreach work, it's all so cool. Okay, moving along... United Sneaker Co. A retail sneaker location soon to open. Thanks to Joe Gomez for trusting in me to help with this endeavor. That's all I can give on that but a little tid bit.. there has never been anything like this in Nebraska. UnitedSneakerCo.com
As a photographer... oh yeah, the juicy part. Lol I am a self taught professional through trial, error, shadowing, researching, reading, studying and etc I've begun to develop a particular style and gather a full understanding of the business. I huge thanks to Terrance Tryon and David Turnbo who are local photographer who've helped expedite my learning curve. I've been shooting as a professional for 1 lone year. People find that hard to believe but with all of the work that has been put in, I guess it's showing.
This is my closing.
I'd like to thank my mother, Carmelita & dad Tylon for the continued support in life. They are my parents, yes but they're also some of my biggest fans and being a success in carrying the family name proudly is something that resonates with me heavily. All of my close friends and family, you couldn't have thought you wouldn't get a mention could you? AJ, Colin, Chris, Kellen, Jarrell, Anthony, Antwaun, Clifton, Maura, Brandon, and this list could continue but it won't. I've rambled enough. If you've lasted this far thanks for checking out my personal blog post.
