About Mike
Mike DeLeonardis Biography I grew up in Miami, FL and have been photographing nature for about half my life. I started shooting black-and-white photography because I could develop and print the photos for free at the time. My tastes shifted from nature to wildlife and I noticed animals looked better in color. I shot mostly animals for about 10 years and then started taking pictures of weather. In making the switch to weather I noticed I preferred the look and feel of black-and-white overall. Currently, unless I’m photographing something where the color is the subject of the image, or the color adds to the image, I’ll almost exclusively shoot with black-and-white in mind. As a storm chaser I try to encompass the weather into a lot of my pictures. Over the years I've shot 35mm, medium format, and full-frame digital. Mike DeLeonardis
