About Me

mike worley headshot aboutAlthough I was not born here, Louisville, KY, has been my home for the past 16 years.

I am retired but stay active. I have a passion for photography and while I have only been actively engaged in photography since 2016, I am shooting photos about three days per week.

Photography Focus

My favorite photo genre is Street Photography – capturing images of people being themselves in everyday situations. In general, street photographs are unposed and often candid. The challenge, and excitement, of street photography is that it is largely unplanned. You can decide where you are going to shoot and when. However, the subjects and the dynamics of the street change, literally moment to moment.

Also for this reason, street photography, unlike studio photography or even landscape or architecture photography, is very ‘spur of the moment.’ The photographer often has only a second or two to make a decision to shoot and to capture an image before it changes.

I also photograph travel and architecture occasionally. Additionally, I have begun doing some studio headshot photography. 


My primary camera is a Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera. For street photography, I primarily use a Nikkor 24-70mm Z-mount lens. I also frequently use my ‘go-to’ lens, a Nikkor 18-300mm DX lens.
