Michael Donaldson

Michael’s passion for both nature and photography is translated superbly in the images he captures. He’s a self-taught photographer who’s been shooting nature photos for 38 years and loves nothing more than to show off the natural beauty of this amazing country we live in through his lens.

Michael is originally from the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area of New York, but has lived many places during his aviation career with the US Air Force, the airlines and presently with the FAA, including Germany, Nebraska, Florida, Wisconsin, Montana and Alaska. He now calls Spokane Valley home and has lived in the area for over 10 years. He loves to travel all over the Northwest and has gone through great lengths to get that one special shot that makes his heart race. One of his goals is to make the viewer feel like they were standing right there when the photo was taken – that they not only see the photo, but that it personally reaches deep into their heart and soul.
