Early Summer Art Show: Mike Tesi, Photographer
June 3 - July 8
I love taking photographs and it shows up (as I’ve been told) in the quality of my work. Through framing a section of the world – a person, place or thing – I communicate what I see. I compose it so the elements in the frame make what I’m seeing “feel right.” I see the beauty, the colors and tones, the light, and the relationships of shapes, forms and lines. I bring them all together to create a photograph that will spark a provocative thought or have a lasting reaction.
In addition to using photography as a wonderful way to express myself, as a commercial photographer I love collaborating with others to sell an idea, product or concept.
My work has appeared in numerous national and international consumer and trade publications including: Town & Country, Architectural Digest, Vogue, Gourmet, Stereo Review, Time and the New York Times Magazine, as well as many specialty and trade journals. I’ve won numerous awards and recognition from arts organizations as well as the commercial art world.
I am presently on the executive board of the Art Directors Club of New Jersey, a member of the Advisory Committee at Middlesex County College for the Media Arts Program, and founding member of the American Society of Media Photographers New Jersey Chapter.
I am truly blessed to be making my living doing something that I feel passionate about. I appreciate your interest and I welcome your inquiries.
