meet me

I'm Michael and ...

I love to dance tango and in my not too distant past I have been a computer geek, somatic therapist, close-up magician and community activist. I have embraced every one of these things with passion and pride. They have all humbled and empowered me and have played a large role in how I see the world and all its little parts.

Michael Tissington

For many years I have been making photographs of people which help capture the essence of the person or event.

I have yet to meet a single person who doesn’t have an interesting and personal story to tell. I believe one of my greatest skills is in my ability to see their stories, their essence, and to celebrate them with my camera.

I love to travel throughout Scotland, England and the USA’s Pacific Northwest (Washington and Oregon). Yes, I have more than one passport. I’m based in Scotland, UK and Portland, Oregon USA.
