Mike Baltierra is a freelance photographer based out of Seattle, WA. He picked up the shutter bug at an early age from his father who is a life long photo hobbyist.
Photography is a way for Mike to not only capture images, but a way to tell a story. He wants to capture images that give a voice to whatever the subject might be and to get excitement from the viewer. Portrait, music, and urban photography are his main interests.
When he is not out shooting, he spends most the day employed as a Systems Administrator for an aerospace firm just outside of Seattle. He loves strong coffee and craft beers. He is also a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt.
Mike is originally from Northern California, where he lived most of my life. He is married to his awesome wife of over twenty years and together they have three sons.
