About Me - Mike Watters Photography

Hello and thanks for visiting my site. I am an Orlando based photographer currently focusing on youth, college, and major league sports action photography as well as team portraits and individual player portraits. I have been photographing memories for many years. I purchased my first camera in 1976 at age 14 and fell in love with documenting life. At age 18 I became a fireman near Orlando, Florida and began documenting the fire service. I contributed photos to several fire service and emergency medical publications over 27 years before retiring in 2007. I have worked in the studio producing portraits, on site photographing weddings, events, and real estate. With the advent of digital photography I lost interest in the photography business and gave up trying to use the very expensive and difficult to learn digital processing software that came along in the 90s. For many years I did not pick up a camera until my son was born in 2003. At that time my wife bought a Digital camera so I could document our sons younger years. I took hundreds of photos and had no place to store them as high capacity storage was very expensive in the early digital years. In 2016 my son became interested in Lacrosse and joined a team here in Orlando. As team members moved on to high school so did the parent who was photographing the team. I was approached to photograph the 2017-2018 season and here we are. I currently produce sports images for USA TODAY Sports, Orlando Soccer Journal, Rollins College, UCF, Bentley University, Assumption College, University of Tampa, and several area High Schools. Please contact me if I can assist you with your photography needs.
