Welcome to Micheile dot com
I'm not sure what brought you here, but I'm thrilled you're here. My name is Micheile which is much easier to pronounce than the spelling might lead you to believe. I've always just pronounced it Me-Shell, like Michelle but with a silent e at the end. Rotterdam, The Netherlands is where I live happily with my partner, Ivo and our two black cats –Neko & Pandora. I have a daughter, Cierra who inspired me to become a photographer.
I have many interests including reading, cinema, graphic design, and travel but photography has been my passion for what feels like forever. In the last several years it’s something I’ve spent a lot of time exploring. Here on my website I want to share with you my journey into the wonderful world of capturing light.
