Michael S Lewis/Magical Light Adventures

I have been working as a photographer since 1981, exploring this wonderful world with photography as my passport. I started as a staff newspaper photographer, one of the best jobs ever!

My life as a freelance photographer began in 1986. My first book, “A Century of Seasons: Colorado’s Centennial Farms & Ranches” told the stories of some of Colorado’s early settlers and was published in 1994 .

The following year, I began an association with the National Geographic Society that continues to this day. I worked on assignment providing photos for travel books in the U.S. and Canada. In 1999 I began traveling to eight countries on the African continent as the photographer for the NGS book, “Africa”, which was a companion piece to the National Geographic/PBS series of the same name. A few years later, I was fortunate enough to be included in a group of the best photojournalists from around the world to work on the historic book, “A Day in the Life of Africa”.

I have led workshops and tours in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania for Mango African Safaris and taught summer workshops in the former silver mining town of Creede, Colorado. After living in Mexico for eight years, I specialize in leading tours in Mexico and Central America.

Our Day of the Dead tour in Chiapas is very unlike Dia de los Muertos in Oaxaca or Michoacan, since it has not been discovered by tourists. We will have more personal and intimate experiences with the local people.

The Semana Santa tour in Guatemala is big, colorful and most likely one of the most memorable weeks you will ever experience!
