Hi! I’m Michael, a Portrait and Wedding photographer and I lead a team of amazing traveling photographers here at F10 Studio primarily based in major cities in Canada and the United States of America. Although, on the off chance that you are out of North America, we would love to travel the world for you to capture your most special moments.
My journey to being a photographer emerged from being the designated cell phone photographer while out with friends and family, I had always been told that I have an eye to create a good image. I always knew that at some point I would make a living from documenting and telling stories through my photographs.
I was encouraged by my mom who helped make my vision come true when she bought me my first digital camera, a Canon Rebel! From that moment on I was glued to the camera. I photographed everything and anything I came across. I have since then invested in some of the latest high-end tools out there (cameras, lenses etc) that help me create beautiful images.
I attended workshops and took every online photography class I could find, more importantly, found incredible mentors in Jide Alakija, Siva Haran, Susan Stripling and my friend Bisi Alawode all of whom I've learnt a whole lot from! I am a huge visual learner, so having these resources readily accessible to me on the internet and in-person (Siva, Jide & Bisi) was a huge blessing! I have since been able to pass on such knowledge and expertise to the many photographers on and outside of my team.
What I love about photos is that they catch a millisecond that is gone, always difficult to relive like the first time. I love to tell stories through the images that we capture. Our goal is to capture your one of a kind story and present it in manners that will leave you reliving those precious moments for many years to come.
If you hire me as your wedding photographer, my promise to you is to deliver amazing timeless images that will be relived for many many years to come.

Here are some fun facts about me:
- I am an athlete and academy coach (I play semi-pro soccer for Aurora FC and I am the Lead coach for the Aurora Youth Soccer Club U-8 Boys)
- While I am a fully self-taught photographer, I attended a diploma program in Creative Photography at Humber College (Learning never stops!)
- having been an athlete all my life, I am a Sports Photographer by default. If you have ever been to a Toronto FC game, chances are you've probably seen me on the sidelines with my long lenses taking some photographs.
