My name is Mike Kiniry. This website will connect you to my various projects and passions. I became a photographer in 1999 after inheriting an old Yashica TL-Super from a friend. I took it to a local camera shop and they told me I might as well throw it away because its light meter was broken and it had “light leaks.” I tried it out anyway and it seemed to work just fine. I wound up shooting literally thousands of rolls of film thru it, and learned the art of shooting with 35mm cameras by feel without using a light meter. I used it for years, as well as other old 35mm cameras that I began to inherit from friends once they knew what I was doing. This was around the time pocket digital cameras starting becoming popular.
I consider myself to be a photographer of light and moments…I love shooting landscapes and interesting “lightscapes” but also people, especially children and families. I’m available for on-site family photo shoots, as well as portraits and commissions. Check out the above links for details.
