About Mick Anderson


While in college, Mick had the opportunity to work at St. Mary Lodge at the east entrance to Glacier National Park in Montana, 1970 -1971. It was in this magical place where he met several fellow students from other parts of the country who would change the direction of his life by introducing Mick to nature, the mountains, the guitar and singing, fly fishing, writing music, hiking, and -- most importantly -- the Single Lens Reflex camera! He had a chance to play with Pentacon, Yashica, Pentax, Nikon and other brands, leading cameras of that day. It opened up a whole new way of looking at the world, and started a hobby that quickly grew into a passion that has stood the test of many years. His first “real” camera was a Yashica “Electro-35” range-finder camera, which was followed quickly by a Fuji SLR featuring a Pentax screw-mount lens system, manual flashes, and a “semi-automatic” metering system -- which meant that Mick pretty much had to figure out exposures the “old fashioned” way of calculating aperture and shutter speed based on film speed and the lighting conditions of the moment. These lessons have served him well to this day, even with “auto everything” availability built into just about every camera available. Having an “eye” for photography is what sets Mick apart from the pack!

The hobby of photography grew into the business of Mick’s Photography in the summer of 1989 while living in Paradise, California, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. It quickly grew to be one of the most popular wedding photography companies in the area. With Nikon film cameras in hand, Mick and his wife Sarine moved to Florence, Oregon, in January of 1996. Note to anyone considering a move in the dead of winter... don’t do it! Mick’s Photography quickly became the premier wedding photography business in western Lane County with newly acquired Canon film cameras, while the coast and mountains of Oregon brought out the true passion of his photography. He found beauty in the environment in all seasons of the year. He and his camera would often come home drenched but happy! Finally, another move in 2000 placed the Andersons in the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon.

Again Mick’s Photography flourished in Medford and Grants Pass. In 2005 the film cameras gave way to the world of digital photography, and Mick hasn’t looked back. With several digital SLR cameras in hand, both Canon and Sony, he now has freedoms and abilities that were only dreams in the age of film. New technologies combined with old-fashioned photographic sense are the driving forces behind the current incarnation of Mick’s Photography. More recently a hidden talent for the pen and brush have infused a new direction in his art. Keep watching!
