MICKEY STRIDER

A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Mickey became a southern California transplant after stops, and many adventures, in New York City, Richmond, Virginia + Winston-Salem, North Carolina. His first camera was a very compact, but sturdy and reliable, 35mm Yashica FX-3 with 50mm + 135mm lenses, which Mickey was given in the 8th grade. He has been shooting ever since.

In addition to his still photography work, Mickey is a longtime veteran of the advertising + film production communities and is an award winning producer + director who has spent time working on commercials, short + feature films as well as music videos + television.

Complimenting his commercial work, Mickey's fine art photography is regularly exhibited at galleries and museums across the United States and has been seen in a variety of publications. His artwork can be found in the homes of collectors in California, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey + New York, as well as Canada + Japan.

Currently residing in San Diego, California with his wife, three children + four dogs, Mickey can usually be found with a camera to his eye along with the never ending drive to create inspiring + moving work.
