Episode Notes

This week's guest is Michael Paragas, a Las Vegas-based photographer who is responsible for the majority of my behind-the-scenes content. Mike was thrown into the photography business with help from his mother, shooting chapel weddings in Vegas casinos. After learning from others and establishing his style, Mike has since moved away from shooting weddings and recently began working freelance, particularly in portraiture and occasional video content.

Mike is currently learning video and shoots with his A7RII rig and plans on upgrading to the FS5 in 2018. You can view his website here.
