About Me

Mike Alegado is Conceptual and Fine Art Photographer based in Manila, Philippines. My work mostly focuses on surrealism and fantasy. I like to make images that contain the human element and form. Portraying emotions and themes in a single image to tell a story is my style of photography that makes the viewer imagine of a different time and place. I am inspired by Nature and with man’s interaction with it. I play with the idea of a different world from reality that could have happened if nature took a different path.Exploring the science fiction and mysterious magical elements that mother earth plays in to portray and tell stories with. I am completely self-taught in the art of photography, having a background in web-designing and Photoshop I am able to use these skills to create fantastic images that can take you inside your imagination.

Aside from photography on land I am also a licensed scuba diver and hobbyist free diver and have started taking Underwater photos to show the ethereal forms and creatures you can see under the sea. It’s also a great look for fine art to showcase elegance and flow into your photographs if captured under water.
