Michael Okimoto has called Lake Tahoe and the northern Nevada area home for the last 21 years. Having worked in the photography and production industry for most of his career, Okimoto currently operates a veteran-owned commercial photography business in the Reno area, focusing on active lifestyle, tourism and hospitality campaigns. Though Okimoto’s long spanning photography career has earned him many awards, he is particularly proud of two Travel Nevada Official Visitors Guide cover images, which were each awarded Gold ADDYs in the American Advertising Awards. Aside from working professionally in the industry, he also enjoys sharing his knowledge by co-instructing at many night photography workshops throughout Nevada and the American West. When he is not shooting commercially, Michael enjoys discovering and photographing Nevada’s unparalleled diversity in public lands.
