Sharon Beth, our host, interviews Michael Doven in a four part interview. 

As an Artist, Michael Doven is a: World Class Photographer, World Class Filmmaker, Business Consultant, speaker and teacher.

Photographer and New York Institute of Photography graduate Michael Doven has lived a charmed life. This 1997graduate of NYIP was already an accomplished photographer before he studied at NYIP, having worked extensively in the industry since 1977.  His creativity is sparked by his active lifestyle, traveling the globe (visiting more than 50 countries by the time he was 25), participating in cinematography classes, and working with the best directors of photography for major motion pictures since 1991, including roles like production assistant and associate producer for Tom Cruise on movies like Jerry Macguire, Magnolia, The Firm, A Few Good Men, Eyes Wide Shut, Minority Report, Vanilla Sky, and the Mission Impossible series.

Doven's world travels put his equipment to the test, shooting with a Nikon F4 and F5 and then several Mamiya 645s and Mamiya 7s. He's currently using the Nikon D3, the Hasselblad H3D and the RED One.  Two of his images have been represented by Christie's International to raise money in their Annual Green Auction to benefit environmental charities like Conservation International and the Central Park Conservancy. His 2011 Christies' photograph was taken several years ago when Doven rented a helicopter and flew from Kathmandu, Nepal to the Mt. Everest Base camp. After having tea with the Lamas in a nearby monastery, he saw amazing blue mountains and took his fine art piece EVEREST VALLEY from the helicopter. The clear day and 18,000-foot altitude created intense blue colors that he perfectly captured in a timeless photograph.
