About MG

Michael George is a photographer, writer, and people-lover based out of Brooklyn. He has lived in New York City for too many years but somehow holds onto a childlike sense of optimism. His formative years were spent in Fort Myers, Florida where he grew up with the ocean and probably your grandma. Michael’s work strives to tell stories of our common humanity through travel, culture, and the underrepresented. He has guest lectured at many notable Universities (including the leaf ones) and has taught workshops all over the world, including Antarctica. 

He has worked on all seven continents on stories ranging from the melting glaciers of Patagonia to the charity projects of an Indian Royal Family. His images have been awarded and exhibited by American Photography, Photoville, and The One Club for Creativity. Michael is a Part 107 Commercially Licensed Drone Pilot, as well as an SSI certified diver whose narratives span the land, air, and sea. He has biked across the USA, walked across France and Spain, and has the calves to prove it. If you ever meet him, you’ll probably say “I thought you’d be taller.”
