About mtraufler

Hello and thank you for stopping by my website. I'm Mike Traufler, a self taught photographer in Columbia, South Carolina. I'm a retired United States Marine, a husband, a father and an avid hiker with a love for nature and capturing all the beauty that surrounds us.

As far back as I can remember I've owned a camera of one sort or another. From the old Kodak Brownie that my grandfather gave me as a kid through my first 35mm and into today's digital world, I have always enjoyed capturing the world around me. I attempt to present the things that we pass by in our daily lives in unique and interesting ways. In addition to the every day scenes that surround us I love to get out into the natural world and explore. I have always had a love of nature and all things in it and try to capture that in my photography. I hope that through my photos might inspire you to get out and explore the world around us.

If you are interested in purchasing any of my work, please email me at trauflerphotography@gmail.com or message me on Facebook.
