Photographs by Michael Muzzey

I have been interested in photography since I was about 10 years old. My first camera was a Polaroid Swinger Instamatic.

I took several years of photography instruction in high school and was constantly entering contests. I learned B&W developing techniques, lighting, portraiture and composition which remains my favorite.

My wife, Joanne and I live full time in Elmhurst, IL and part time in the Galena Territory for many years. We are planning our retirement in the Territory in the near future.

My subject passion lies with the Galena Territory scenery, wildlife of any type, sunsets and sunrises, and of course my family, children and grandchildren. I strongly believe in photos that that tell stories.
