Michael Sakas says of himself "I’m a seeker.  I crave new experiences because I believe each new language we hear, new friend we make, or new mountain we look down from offers a greater understanding of the world around us.  The world is a complicated place, and we need a complex vision to match. And so with each new shoot that I do, I bring a seekers eye, a longing to connect, a desire to try a new thing and to see not just the visible but the incorporeal as well: the enthralled musician, the athlete in flow, the confidence and verve of the fashionista, or the concern of the kind hearted. People and places around us can inform and inspire us with their wonder to see the world more richly.  I like to share that. Michael will join the Sahara Race (Namibia) 2018 as the official photographer for his first 4 Deserts / RacingThePlanet experience.
