Michael Berman is a fine art and assignment marine photographer with twenty five years of experience photographing for nautical art collectors, boat builders, marine equipment manufacturers and sailing and motor boating magazines. He lives on the Olympic Peninsula near Port Townsend, Washington.
This web site features three portfolios of Michael�s nautical photography. The first portfolio showcases his black and white photographs of classic wooden schooners, sailing ships and yachts. These photographs are inspired by the historic sailing images of Rosenfeld and Beken of Cowes but are photographed in Michael�s contemporary style and printed using archival digital techniques.
The second portfolio is a series of panoramic images titled Transatlantic Passage that was made during a sailing trip from Gran Canaria to St. Lucia. The series is a visual exploration of time and place, where the view point is always the deck of the boat, but the view is never the same. This concept of change was first expressed in the 6th century B.C. by the Greek philosopher Heraclitus when he stated that �one can never step in the same stream twice.�
The third portfolio showcases Michael�s color commercial marine photography: helicopter aerials, boat to boat running shots and interior photographs of sailboats, motor yachts and sport fishing boats.
