Meet the Photographer
The world we live in is absolutely beautiful in so many ways. Having the ability to capture a moment in time and enjoy it for a lifetime is priceless. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to be in the right place at the right time to photograph special memories.
My name is Michael Randall and I am excited to be able to showcase my artistic viewpoints throughout this website. I live in Hilliard, Ohio with my beautiful fiancé and crazy dog. Photography started to become an interest of mine close to 20 years ago when my father bought a Panasonic 3.1 Megapixel point and shoot digital camera. Fast forward to today - I am shooting on full frame Canon cameras with a growing arsenal of equipment to capture the best possible image. I have a unique abstract approach utilizing a wide-angle perspective, leading to a formidable background with sharp depth of field throughout.
By day, I am a senior solution architect for Northwoods Consulting Partners - a software development company creating solutions for government human services agencies. This is where I met my coworker and photography mentor, Randy Vermillion. Throughout the years, Randy has guided me to become a better photographer and I cannot thank him enough for all he has done.
By night, I am a licensed professional pyrotechnician that started as a personal hobby many years ago, and has now grown into being involved with multiple high-level companies and clubs - including doing shows for the Cleveland Browns and US Soccer. Being a pyrotechnician has given me unique opportunities in my firework photography.
