Welcome to the M Palma Photo Blog

Hi, my name is Mike, a professional wedding and portrait photographer born, raised, and based here in beautiful, Silverlake, Los Angeles, California.

On this blog, you'll find the daily inspirations, images and musings of my life.

I love photographing people, places, and anything else that catches my eye. I describe my style of photography as modern, fun, and energetic. So stay a while, check out my work, and get to know me better through my images and entries.

If you'd like to visit my main wedding and portrait site, click on this link, or click on the "connect" button up top to drop me a line via e-mail.

Like I said, stay awhile, and enjoy the entries. And please, do leave a comment. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter (via the icons above this paragraph) for even more up-to-date happenings (don't worry, I won't put up meager posts like "I'm standing in line at Starbucks" (my favorite coffee spot!). Only the really cool and important stuff!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Whew! I’ve been busy! I missed last week’s blog post entry due to the opening week of a musical that we are producing, and opening week sure does have a lot of stuff to entail. Nonetheless, opening was a success, as was opening weekend. It is such a thrill to be able to create something and present it to the public, especially something of this size and undertaking. 

The musical, entitled “Ordinary Days” is about the lives of four New Yorkers trying to figure out what their “life stories” are. The entire play is set to music, with no real dialogue, with the story told through the songs and interactions of the actors. It’s written by uber-talented composer Adam Gwon. I play the role of “Jason” in it, who tries to figure out his relationship situation with his love interest. You’ve really got to check it out!
I may have mentioned it before, but you can check out the behind the scenes photography on it at our our production blog. Click here to check it out. 
We still have two more weekends worth of performances, so if you want to catch this “singing photographer”, check out the site, and perhaps even purchase some tickets if you’re in the area. 
Before I leave you today, here’s a cast photo taken by a good friend of mine, Keri Kaba. All these people helped bring this vision/production to life, and we are most grateful to them for their talents and contributions :) Thanks guys!
