In a time when most were consumed with cartoons and adolescent awkwardness, Michael, armed with a camera, knew he wanted to shoot things. Legally, of course. And sans bullets. His love of scrap metal, monster mowers and most importantly, food, has resulted in a smorgasborg of award-winning photography. Served hot and fresh since 1992.

If it can be cooked, sliced, diced, sipped, chewed or puréed, Michael shoots it. And if it can fit through the door of his Deep Ellum studio, he'll shoot that, too. Note: It's a pretty big door. Full kitchen, latest equipment, extensive prop room, lattes, good music and conversation are all part of the package.

When he's not behind the lens, you can spot Michael making bottle trees, depleting the lake of fish, or trying to one up MacGyver. Just don't call him MacHaskins.
