Micheal Kennedy

Even in his headshot shown in this BIO, it is easy to recognize Micheal Kennedy’s creative mind. Not surprisingly, Micheal’s passion for taking photographs is part of his very core, since childhood, sparked by his instructor in his high school photography class. Darkroom work excited him, but his passion did not fade when digital photography came on the scene.

Soon after high school, Kennedy joined the military and it was off to Hawaii, specifically Oahu. Anyone who has spent time in this part of the world can easily imagine how the people and scenery can inspire a photographer. Micheal was gifted a Nikon and it just took over. In his own words, “The connection was instantaneous and further enhanced by travels to Japan and Guam.”

Once back in the Orlando area, Micheal did not put the camera down—whether photographing his children from birth on, or just nature and life in general. Micheal took a particular interest in race track and demolition photography, as well as other scenes of action. It soon grew to an income earning endeavor. His powerful images led to teaching photography, and the Digital Photo Academy team discovered him and brought him on to the rotation of instructors.

During Covid, Micheal engaged in hiking and took photographs of everything from nature, to street portraiture at a distance, seascapes and landscapes, and the earmarkings of urban life such as bridges and every kind or architecture.

Micheal has stuck with the Nikon brand but has made it his business (or obsession) to go down the rabbit hole with any and every camera. His life is defined by taking photographs.

Micheal is also proud to have been selected to do photography work for the Phantom Airborne Brigade, a group that enables active duty, retired, and veteran paratroopers to relive the experience of jumping as they did during their service.

Comments to “Micheal Kennedy”


  1. Turned out to be a nice day in Sanford. Micheal is a great instructor. Here are some unedited photos.



    • I wish I had brought my zoom lens for the Osprey pictures.



  2. Good morning!

    I really enjoyed my class with Micheal last Saturday. He is super informative and a very friendly person. I definitely learned a lot! Beautiful photos! Micheal is truly an inspiration!!



  3. Micheal,

    Thank you for the photos that were uploaded to Dropbox. I shared them with our Paratroopers and they absolutely loved them. In fact, they asked me to reach out and ask you if you would be sharing the rest of the collection from 11-11-2023. They want to see them all!

    Your photos are fantastic and really captured the essence of our Organization and our Paratroopers!

    We appreciate your support and we thank you for the wonderful photos,

    Greg Stanley
    Phantom Airborne Brigade



  4. Micheal,

    I greatly appreciate the time you took to prepare information. I found it extremely helpful in focusing my efforts.

    One final question if you don’t mind. In my utilization, I place importance on having GPS for geotagging my photos (especially for destinations like antarctica, arctic circle, Galapagos Islands, etc.). I don’t see that the D850 has this capability. Nevertheless, I have read that GPS can be added through accessory devices such as those made by Micnova or the Nikon GP-1. Do you have any thoughts on such adjunct devices?

    Thank you again,
    George



  5. I wanted to thank you for sharing your photos with us, Mike your pictures came out great! I hope you got to enjoy Gatorland as well. I also appreciate the cheat sheets you provided, which will be helpful as I continue to learn more about photography.

    I enjoyed the live shooting portion of the class, as it allowed me to put into practice what I had learned about the camera and its controls. I found both classes to be very informative and valuable.

    I have attached a few photos from during and after class. Please note that these are unedited photos. I didn’t have a chance to take many photos after class, as we spent some time enjoying the park.

    I look forward to staying in touch with you both as I continue on my photography journey.

    Thanks again for your help!
