My name is Michael Maggid, a New Yorker living in Northern California for 31 of my 62 years. I have been a photographer for about 45 years, working first as a newspaper photographer, then free lance, now just doing projects for my own pleasure. In the 70's I did album covers for artists like Van Morrison and the Doobie Brothers, and had my photo of the Rolling Stones concert/debacle at Altamont on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. I decided to learn more about computer imaging a few years back, and am now working exclusively in the digital realm. I hope this site will be a medium to share my work with a wider audience.

I would like to hear from you, dear viewer. Say hello after you have looked around by clicking on the "Contact" button.
