An incredible wedding and portrait photographer, with a passion (and a weak spot) for storm photography… or is it the other way around?
Mike Olbinski is a multi-talented photogapher that doesn’t limit himself to only one type of photography. Photographing tranquil romantic weddings and joyful family moments in the off-season, he leaves all that behind when the summer comes around, turning into an adventurous and free-spirited storm chaser and storm photographer! I guess you can say Mike Olbiski is like one of those superheroes we grew up watching on TV, sort of like a real-life Superman (turned photographer). A person that everyone sees as a calm and easy-going guy with a normal everyday job, but when the time comes, he transforms into a venturesome and passion-driven storm chaser… only difference being, instead of a cape, he’s got his camera!
In fact, Mike is one of those photographers that’s difficult to categorize; it really depends on which of his photographs you see first. For example, someone that sees his wedding and portrait photography first would say he’s a passionate wedding photographer, with a thing/hobby for storms. On the other hand, someone that sees his storm photography first would say he’s a passionate storm photographer, and does wedding photography during the off-season to pass the time. In my opinion, it’s the latter of the two, a passionate storm photographer! Whatever the case may be, he’s certainly good at what he does, and that is photography! Great work!
