Michael Todor has been interested in photography since the early 1970’s, during his senior year in High School. His first subjects were nature and the Badlands near his home. Since that time Michael has studied art and photography on his own and at workshops hosted by the Professional Photographers of Canada. Michael also has attained accreditation from the PPOC as an environmental portrait photographer.
Prior to opening his portrait studio Michael was Expedition Photographer for the Dinosaur Project and photographed Paleontologists at work in China and Canada’s Arctic. His work has been featured in National Geographic Television CD of the Super crock, Wayne Grady’s book, The Dinosaur Project, and in the Canadian Geographic. Few individuals have Michael’s knowledge and appreciation for the Badlands.
Michael operates FINE PHOTOGRAPHY in Drumheller where he makes quality environmental portraits for his clients and artistic renditions of the Canadian Badlands.
“Photography, for me, is a way to express myself without words. A day in the field refreshes my senses and relaxes my mind so I can focus clearly on the images I see in my viewfinder. In my studio where I finish and print the images I made earlier I recall the feelings and even the scent of the air when they were made. Sharing these insights with my clients is my greatest reward.”
