Mike Wardynski (AKA Nature-Mike) is a landscape and adventure photographer based out of Oakland California. He leads photography workshops throughout the US and world. Nature is at the heart of his work and the harmony of earth can be felt when viewing his images.
Mike believes that human beings are spiritually connected to the planet. Interconnectivity is where the spirit thrives. Through photography, he reminds the viewer of their connection to earth. “We do not own the planet; we are part of it, and It is our responsibility to protect as well as enjoy our environment because it is an extension of ourselves.” One cannot harm the environment without harming themselves, just as one cannot heal the environment without healing themselves. Mike uses imagery to start the conversation of conservation and encourages his audience to look within in order to create change.
