About Me

Instagram - mikeratel

Shooting primarily black and white film in 35mm, medium format, and now large format. My heroes are Helmut Newton and Man Ray. I develop my own B&W film and hope to establish my own signature look over time.

I am much more interested in creating photographs that would hang on someone's wall than "pics" that people view on their phones.

In September 2017 I spent 2.5 weeks photographing Hanoi, Vietnam on the Holga toy camera. I have posted a few on my flickr page.. If you'd be interested in a B&W film shoot please let me know. Let's get together to do something few others are doing. 

Look me up on!!

Specializing in glamour, event, and nightlife photography. My documentary on the sport of lawn mower racing, On Your Mark, Get Set, MOW! has screened at several film festivals.DVD release party in DC September 2019!!
