Michael Johannsen

independent photographer




Michael was born and raised on the Austrian countryside during the late 80‘s. Growing up in the protective environment of a small town, he spent a great amount of time in the outdoors, discovering the fauna and flora surrounding his home town, thus building a tight connection with nature.


Coming from a musical family, it was only a matter of time until he started to play and write his own compositions.
His musical work is largely influenced by songs he heard on a local alternative music radio station in his late teens.


After finishing high school at the age of 20 he moved to the USA, where he lived for several years. During this period he developed his passion for photography, which he now pursues as a freelance photographer.


At the age of 26 he moved back to Austria, where he currently resides.
