About The Photographer
Mike Gibson received his A.A.S. Degree in Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1979. In 1980, he landed a position as staff photographer for a medium size training and simulation company in Orlando, Florida. There, for over 18 years, he was given opportunities to practice a wide ranging set of photographic skills, in the lab and in the field, learning all the aspects of modern industrial photography. Working daily with engineers, programmers, artists, customers, management, manufacturing and others, in places as varied as Abu Dhabi and Switzerland, aircraft factories and hangars, tank plants and testing ranges, Mr. Gibson acquired a broad knowledge and versatility in his craft, leading to his present endeavors.
In 1999, Mike and his wife, Carol, formed their present company, Versatile Photography, so they could work together, providing their photographic services and products to Central Florida and beyond. Moving from industrial photography to their present emphasis on unique fine portraiture and journalistic event coverage was a natural progression. Photography of social celebrations such as weddings, reunions and corporate events accounts for the majority of their work. They also work with schools and churches in their area, providing portrait package photography of individuals and classes. Portraiture of babies, children and families provides special satisfaction -- More than anything else, capturing that perfect moment, and preserving it beautifully in photographs for their clients, is artistically and personally rewarding.
