Michael Baker

Michael Owen Baker

Photographer Michael BakerMike Baker is an award-winning staff photographer at the Los Angeles Daily News, and has been since 1992.

He got his start in photography in high school, where he was “hooked” after his very first class. He has not looked back since.

He obviously enjoys photography as an art form, but more than that, he has found it provides the perfect opportunity to talk to strangers — he finds it very important to engage socially with one’s subjects.

Since his early start, he has photographed every president since Nixon, the Academy Awards, the Emmy Awards, the NBA Finals, the Super Bowl, and the Rose Bowl. He is far from a snob, though, insisting that he is equally satisfied with shooting a nice picture in someone’s backyard.

Photography has led him throughout Mexico, Central and South America.

    Was fun! ”


  2. “It was very nice to meet you. Thank you very much for a very informative class. I enjoyed it very much.
    If you haven’t deleted the picture you took of me at the beginning of the class, can I please have a copy? I especially liked the one with the light coming from behind (with halo around my hair). I may use it for my FB profile pic.

    Thanks very much again.
    Best regards,”
