Industrial Seattle Photography   As the Art Director for the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, it is my job to hire photographers for the many events we hold each year… I had the opportunity to use [Mihael’s] talents last year for a major event and he turned out to have everything I like in a photographer. He was punctual, a good listener, flexible, quick to adapt as situations and conditions changed, kept in mind my needs as a client, had a keen eye, was fun and easy to work with and pleasant with our attendees, and, just as importantly, his photos came out great!

Washington Construction Photography   Mihael was easy to work with and very flexible. He visited the shoot site to scope out the best angles and views from which to take photos, and his prices are reasonable. In addition to being a talented photographer, Mihael also is exceptional with customer service. He was very helpful to us with short turn-around requests and even gave us tips on taking better snapshots with our own camera.

About us

About Mihael Blikshteyn

Mihael BlikshteynI am the owner, lead creative and 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.
