Michael Lewis Global Photography
Freelance Photographer
Austin, Texas Area
I have a bachelor degree in Accounting andI I also have completed a Masters degree in Finance.

I am a lifetime member of the National Black MBA Association, Austin Chapter where I am currently the Chapter’s photographer. I have served other various roles with chapter for the past 5 years such as the finance director and mentor for the Leaders of Tomorrow program.

My passion is capturing an image of the moment where people are happy and those spontaneous moments in time so that they can look back in time at the images and smile again.

I am a freelance photographer where my past assignments included the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans and the National Black MBA Conferences in Los Angeles, Indianapolis and Atlanta. I am also an instructor for the Financial Literacy Coalition of Central Texas.

I ran for office to help people receive opportunities in post-secondary education and to help people earn the skills necessary to get good paying jobs for their families.
