Michael Leenheer

CPA, Master Photographers International

Michael has loved photography since childhood. In one of his earliest portraits he is holding his dad's light meter (and probably recommending a compositional adjustment) as dad lined up the shot. Taking every available opportunity to use a camera through his school years, he studied photography at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology before launching his professional career.

Now with more than 20 years of experience, awards, and happy clients, Michael is still excited to learn new techniques and study his art. He also teaches and mentors enthusiasts at all skill levels.
