Mike Borchard is a professional photographer based out of Southern California. Born and raised in Newport Beach, Mike is heavily influenced by a strong connection with the ocean and natural world. Much of his work is landscape-centric and examines the ways that humans interact with their surrounding environments.

While much of his time is now dedicated to commercial projects, when home, you’ll likely find Mike up early or out late chasing light in the California Mountains and Oceans.

On display is a collection of images all made within last year or so. Some are from far-flung corners of the globe, while many are just right down the street at Blackies!
