About Us

My name is Michael Sylvester and I would love to be your photographer. I was born on September 11th and I have lived in Huntsville, AL since 1993. I am married to a wonderful woman, Joanna.

I have always enjoyed taking pictures ever since I was a kid. I have always dreamed about making a career out of photography and someday owning my own studio. In 2006, I started to work as a freelance photographer in my free time, since I still had a fulltime job. In March of 2009, I decided it was time to star my own business so, I put my 2 weeks notice in and said my last day would be April 1st. It was kind of funny because my boss thought is was an April Fool's joke at first.

Since then I have enjoyed having my own business as a photographer. I have photographed over 100 weddings, over 200 Portraits, 3 military special events, 1 prom dance, 2 local parades, and around 50 non-profit events. In July 2013, I found out that Star Trek Renegades needs a photographer for 3 weeks filming the Pilot episode. Even-though it is in Los Angeles, I applied for the position and sent them this website so they can see the quality of my work. I am a huge Star trek fan, so this would be dream come true. They emailed me back and said I got the job. They said they were hoping to get a local photographer and had over 100 photographers in the running, they decided to choose me. They said they liked the fact that I was a Star Trek fan, but they said what made them choose me was because they loved the quality of photography work. I am the official Set and Behind the Scenes Photographer for the pilot episode of Star Trek Renegades. They already put me on their website crew list, under the " Production Team". www.startrekrenegades.com/home/crew/
