Urban Renaissance

The Walt Disney Concert Hall, located in Los Angeles, CA offers a great place to capture stunning architecture. Designed by architect, Frank Gehry, the Disney Center is a beautiful structure to experience, inside and out.

Mike Baker is an award-winning and published fine art photographer based in the Chicagoland area. Photography is an art of observation. It offers a creative outlet that allows Mike to capture interested subjects in an ordinary place, transforming it into something extraordinary.

Over the course of his photographic journey, Mike has developed that inner eye, that "3rd Eye" that provides perception beyond ordinary sight. His work is most notable in the area of architecture, cityscape, and long exposure monochrome photography.
