About Me


My name is Michael Hardridge and I am a photographer residing in San Luis Obispo, a lovely town on the Central Coast of California. Although I quite enjoy life here, I am constantly traveling to experience everything this wonderful planet has to offer. I have spent the last year traversing the globe with my wonderful wife, and am finally getting settled back in California. It thrills me to be outdoors, so consequently I spend a lot of my time out in nature. My passion is for landscape, nature, and travel photography. To me, photography is about capturing a specific moment in time. I try to take pictures that really portray the emotion that is evoked within myself when I’m out “in the field.”  If you would like to hear more about my travels and current endeavors, be sure to follow my blog. If you have any questions, or just want to chat, the best way to get ahold of me is email at michael@michaelhardridge.com. Happy shooting!
