Who turned out the lights_ Where am I _ I hate Monday.jpg

Jaze is actually plural for my middle initial, J... Michael J's... my true identity? ... no importra por ahora ... born and raised in the beautiful capital city of St. Paul Minnesota - through my travels, vacations, and various assignments I've been fortunate to have visited 40 of our beautiful 50 United States of America as well as DC, near where I currently reside 45 miles northwest in the foothills of Western Maryland.

I recently retired after 40 years in various capacities of federal service and can now turn my lifelong hobby into a full-time professional ambition and follow my passion to share my imagination with all.

who is Michael Jaze?

 ... so  - what am I all about...?

         well, I guess I will leave that up to your imagination...


“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”


― Albert Einstein

bienvenido 2 michael jaze studio

I believe I had my first camera when I was 10 years old. Photography has advanced over the past half century in such beautiful and many wonderful ways making it a versatile and unlimited media in expressing the beauty of our surroundings - far beyond anything ever imaginable.  It’s the 21st century and I believe many of my works express the innovation in the world’s outlook at its current surroundings.

Most of my works are available for purchase in many different formats and  media, including glass, metal, and canvas displays as well as custom sizes of matted (and framed) prints.

I also offer custom edits of your digital photos – once you supply the digital photo and a brief explanation of what you would like the end product to look like, I can usually turn it around to you within 1 week. Priority and rush jobs are also available.

The best thing to do for anything other than the stock offerings you will find on this website is to arrange for a meeting, either on-line or in person with a studio appointment here in Frederick MD.

Please explore and enjoy my galleries and please let me know of anything special I can do for you.
