Michael Rushton

Owner / Photographer, Rushton Images Photography

El Paso , Texas , United States



After holding my first camera as a child I quickly learned that a whole new world existed just by looking through the viewfinder. Soon I was taking photographs of everything I saw. Through these photos I was able to show others the world I saw.

My life has never been boring, from working as a paramedic, teaching scuba diving in the Bahamas, and serving 11 years in the United States Air Force. My military career ended after an injury in Iraq in 2008 at which point I took up photography as a profession, rather than a hobby. My life continues to be an adventure and I am constantly exploring new opportunities to better not only myself, but my photography.

While certainly influenced by the work of other photographers I have never been one for convention or rules and shoot in a style that is “mine”. I find that living and shooting in the moment makes for better images. I am often told this is reflected in the organic nature of my images.

I welcome the opportunity to speak and work with you on your next project. I am available for travel throughout the United States and Internationally. Short notice assignments are no problem!
