Mike long is the founding artist of Portland Pin-Ups. Unlike many photographers, Mike began his career as a retoucher prior to Adobe’s release of Photoshop, which led him to pick up a camera. His knowledge of portrait enhancement is more extensive than the average photographer today. When comparing Mike’s often imitated work, his photography techniques are noticeable and differentiate him from the others.
