A former longtime Alaskan, Michael DeYoung has photographed extensively for the Alaska tourism industry and spent months on adventures of his own, including long distance river and backpacking trips throughout Alaska and the Yukon. He is now based in Taos, New Mexico and continues to specialize in adventure, landscape, lifestyle, fitness, and travel-tourism photography for advertising, corporate and editorial clients.
His images are widely published in visitor guides, corporate websites, catalogs, annual reports, magazines, brochures, calendars, cards, and many other places.
An accomplished workshop instructor, Michael DeYoung passionately teaches and shares his knowledge of landscape and lifestyle photography. He has taught workshops independently in Alaska for over a decade and is an independent Pro Studies workshop instructor for Rocky Mountain School of Photography located in Missoula, MT.
Michael and Lauri—his wife, business partner and assistant—along with their Lab-mix dog, Kyia, divide their time between Alaska and northern New Mexico.
