About Michael Lem


My photography career started at the age of 16, working in a photo lab processing film and printing images. Any free time I had I spent learning how to master the camera while honing my technique. By the age of 19 I had decided to move to Ottawa to further develop my professional skills.

I attended Algonquin college where I greatly increased my expertise in photography while continuing to study all aspects of the camera in my work at a local camera repair center and photo lab. I completed my studies at the School of the Photographic Arts Ottawa, which provided deeper insight into the possibilities of a career behind the lens.

My experience as a photographer is vast and quite varied. My portfolio that ranges from Real Estate to commercial photography, from Portraiture to Weddings and even experimentation with Fine Art. I am confident in my abilities and eager to share my expertise with you in whatever capacity you require. Let us work together to ensure your photographic needs are well met through skill and professionalism.
