My name is Mike Best, and I am a photographer and filmmaker based in London.
Since becoming hooked on photography after seeing my first prints develop under the dim red light of my highs school darkroom, I’ve worn a variety of hats professionally. Whether that was renting out cameras in a camera shop, teaching courses in digital imaging, or working as a Art Director for some of London’s top games and visual effects companies, my core passions have remained; I love watching people immersed in activities, caught in the moment. I love the way light plays off different surfaces. I admit, I really do like a bit of gear. Most of all though 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.
