Co-Owner of US Event Photos, photographer Mike Gatty’s passion for creativity is only surpassed by his love of all things technology.
It all began in college, when he worked as the lifestyle’s and photo editor for a gay community newspaper. After graduating from the University of Maryland with a BA in Psychology, he turned toward human resources. But his love of photography kept gnawing, and on September 12, 2001 his dad (who was a national publisher working on an article) called and asked Mike to travel to New York to photograph Ground Zero.
Mike’s work at Ground Zero, however, reached national recognition when his photos were run on the cover of some major news publications. He quit his HR job and joined his mother’s photography business.
A few years later, the team began to explore work in different cities, and US Event Photos was born.
