My name is Mike Alves, and I recently retired from serving in the United States Army after 26 years. I'm originally from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and now live in Coventry. Photography has always been a lifelong hobby for me; one which I will now pursue as a professional career since my service in the Army is complete. I currently shoot with a Nikon D700 and have a Nikon D200 as a backup. I have an assortment of lenses; my favorites being the 70-200mm f2.8, and 50mm f1.8.
By serving in the Army, I have met people and been places I never would have otherwise. Our great country has much to see and experience; I continue to take photographs so that I can have lasting memories to share with everyone. My style has always been photojournalistic, and not just military-related. In 2009, I earned a Certificate in Professional Photography at the University of South Alabama. I have experience in portrait, wedding, and high school senior photography. I am also skilled in photographing animals, nature, sports and special events. Feel free to view my galleries; photos are constantly being added so remember to check back often!
