Mike Gurule is a photographer and San Francisco Bay Area native who has a passion for creating images that celebrate the uniqueness of his clients. Whether photographing a Bay Area cookbook author against the colorful backdrop of her home kitchen, a boisterous street festival in Barcelona or an inquisitive toddler, Mike brings his love of craft and spontaneity to every picture-making moment.
A seasoned digital imager, Mike applies his keen eye for color, texture and composition to each image he creates in the camera and later, on screen. He spent 10 years as a professional newspaper and online imager and has been taking pictures since college, when he picked up his first camera. He loves creating portraits and has a passion for street photography, but is equally comfortable with commercial shoots.
Mike is an award winning photographer. He is the father of a busy two-year-old, a loving husband and owner of two wonderfully mischievous dogs. He loves exploring farmers markets, the Northern California coast and jamming on the guitar and drums.
