Mike Munhall is a freelance photographer/photo journalist based in New Hampshire who photographs primarily in the Greater Boston area but also ventures to other parts of the world on assignments. He is available to work with individuals and groups and endeavors to help them bring their vision to reality.
Mike’s parents gave him his first camera when he was in second grade. This Kodak Brownie Starmite was never far from him as he grew up. He progressed from his handy Kodak to Canon and then Nikon and from film to digital. Today he uses a Nikon D3 for his work. Mike comes from a line of artists. His father was a commercial artist, his grandfather was an artist for the Associated Press and his mother was a singer.
Mike holds a degree in political science and art and a Masters in Educational Administration and had a 38 year career in independent and charter schools as a teacher and school leader. He has contributed his photo skills to each of the schools where he has worked and advised 28 yearbooks as well as teaching both social studies and photography. In recent years, he has worked for Boston, Auburn, Arizona State and Indiana universities, The New Hampshire Council on the Arts, New Hampshire Public Radio, Henniker Community Schools, Boston Ballet, Boston Fashion Week, and photographed the London 2012 Olympics for The Christian Science Monitor. He had a White House credential during the 2012 election that gave him considerable access to the president. He freelances for The Concord Monitor and Monadnock Ledger-Transcript (NH). His work has been published in European newspapers and magazines as well. Today, with his passport ready, he is available to do assignments both locally and internationally.
