Michael Schwartz

I was born, raised and educated in Timisoara. After receiving a P.Eng in Chemical Engineering, I started a 35 years long career in the Petrochemical Industry that took me around the world. 

Currently, I am retired, in Vancouver, Canada.

Photography has been an important part of my life, since my youth. What started as a hobby, developed into a passion. I actively participate in the global photo community, on various platforms and I enjoyed many photography awards.

I have a strong need for communication, in general and visual communication specifically. I walk around searching for interesting images, whether I carry my camera or not. My vision and ambition is to capture the beauty around us, in Nature and in Man-made environments, by going beyond the technical knowledge of the medium and reaching the artistic level.

My photographic interests include a large variety of subjects, from landscapes, nature, abstracts, street photography to close-ups, from action filled scenes to still lives.

Lately, I also enjoy exploring the endless possibilities of digitally enhancing photographic images into photo-art.
