Hi! I am Mihael Blikshteyn, a commercial photographer in Seattle – Tacoma, Washington, USA. I specialize in corporate, maritime, industrial and construction photography.
I am the principal photographer at Mihael Blikshteyn Photography. I have been a commercial and editorial photographer since 2005. I specialize in industrial, transportation, logistics and construction photography.
I am also passionate about editorial storytelling. My images are used to further the causes of the World Wildlife Fund, the PEW Charitable Trusts, Wild Salmon Center, United Way, Real Change Homeless Empowerment Project, Housing First and other conservation, cultural and social justice organizations. I regularly write for Fishermen’s News and the Pacific Maritime Magazine.
In my first career of 15 years, I was a research and conservation fishery biologist. I have keen interests in fisheries, maritime, conservation and social justice issues and visual storytelling.
Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, I grew up in Russia and New York City, and spent a decade working and living in Alaska. By way of northern California and Oregon, I settled in Tacoma, Washington.
My passion in life is visual storytelling. I craft a life that is a story worth telling.
