For Michele McCormick, now based in Sacramento, California, photography is a lifelong journey that began more than four decades ago. It started with college studies emphasizing photography, and led Michele into early adventures in freelance writing and editorial photography for publications around the world. Then life took a different path, and she pursued a professional career in which photography took a back seat as an adjunct activity.

In 2010, Michele returned to her early passion for photography, and entered the world of digital photography with energy and enthusiasm. Michele is energetically engaged in the world around her, and her objective is to portray that world's many dimensions through photography. Whether in nature, in urban life, or fundamental human interaction, Michele sees beauty in many forms, and strives to share that vision.

The results of this exploration have been recognized through inclusion and honors in juried competitions including Sacramento's Crocker-Kingsley, the California State Fair, 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles, Black Box Gallery in Portland, Sacramento's Temporary Contemporary Gallery, the KVIE Art Auction, and many more.
