My name is Mike Best, and I am a photographer and filmmaker based in London.
I’ve been passionate about visual storytelling since the first time that I watched a picture I had taken magically appear before my eyes under the dim red lights of my highschool darkroom. I was hooked on a medium that would be a persistent source of joy (and sometimes frustration) throughout my life.
Over the years I have wore many hats professionally, including working as an Art Director for some of London’s top games and visual effects companies. All the while though photography has been my consistent passion.
I love watching people immersed in activities, caught in the moment. I love the way light plays off different surfaces. Most of all I love the way great images tell a story.
Alongside my own work, I share my enjoyment of photography and film on this site, along with practical advice and a few tips and techniques as well.
