Hello!  My name is Mike Schaid and this is my work.  I am a young professional who worked in the field of financial operations.  I got into photography by chance after receiving praise for an image sent through SnapChat.  I took that praise seriously and bought my first camera.  From there, the obsession grew and, what started out as a hobby, quickly evolved into an alternate career possibility.  Now I am taking a leap of faith and getting out of the world of numbers and money and capturing moments full time.  I will be headed west this summer living the nomadic life out of a trailer and I couldn't be more excited.
