Paradise Productions is founded by an award-winning photographer with decades of photographic experience.

My photographic journey began as a child, when I became captivated by the mystery of documenting life on road trips with my father. Photography led me outside the reality of what I knew by exposing me to multiple perspectives and lifestyles. Through this process, I connected to nature and opened myself up to the people around me.

Every moment we share with our loved ones is fleeting. Capturing them as art in the midst of these loving and precious moments not only provides us with tangible memories, but also has the ability to influence other people, cultures, and values. 

Although I gained invaluable behind the lens experience at the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography, I came to realize that the most crucial components for success already existed within me: self discipline, motivation, and passion.

I started Paradise Productions to allow myself the freedom and flexibility for personal and artistic growth. I enjoy going the extra mile for all of my clients. I cherish each interaction, no matter how big or small. The slightest gesture or genuine smile can convey the deepest amount of compassion. The most important thing we can do is act out of this compassion and love, which is how I approach all of my work.

“My family and I recently spent the last two weeks in Kauai and Michael captured the most memorable moments for us. He was very professional but really felt more like a part of our family. He took so many great photos that we are not sure how to pic which will go on our walls. Everything was very timely as well. We plan to go back to Kauai again and will definitely use Michael again! Thank you for making our vacation come to life with your talent!! Mahalo” - Melinda Z.
“Michael was fabulous! We were on a family vacation in Kauai and wanted to do a photo shoot, but we had not booked one before we arrived. Michael was able to schedule us on very short notice and was easy to work with. He was very accommodating, friendly, and reasonably priced. We absolutely love our pictures. Thanks again Michael!” - Nicole Q.
“Michael is truly a professional and a very nice guy! My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary in Kauai and decided at the last minute to have professional photos taken. I did a search and found paradise productions, called and spoke to Michael and fortunately for me he was able to accommodate our photo shoot with only a couple of days notice, we now have a photos and could not be happier!” - I W.
