Michele McCain is a photographic artistic. She loves to combine the technical side of photography with her artistic interests to create one-of-a-kind works of storytelling art.
Michele's passion as an artist is to weave together images from her travels; including compelling landscapes, decrepit rural decay, hectic urban scenes, along with costumed characters, using illustrative and digital techniques to form a profoundly emotional story.

She has been awarded the highly esteemed Photoshop World Guru Award in 2015 for her photographic art.
