My name is Michael Pohl and I'm an award winning and nationally published portrait artist based in the Historic Rivertown District in Antioch, California. I'm currently an ambassador with the Antioch Chamber Of Commerce, a member of the Antioch Rotary Club, and 2nd Chair of the AHS Linked Learning Advisory Board.

I see each portrait commission as an opportunity to tell the unique story of a couple or a family. 

I create lasting memories with a lens, shutter, and talent. I take into account the importance of the background, lighting, colors, composition, and editing to create a unique and stunning piece of art for you and your family. I've spent years of studying light and composition in order to train my eye to create the best artwork possible. Anyone with a camera can take a picture, but it takes true skill to create a portrait. 

I create emotional pieces of family history that will tug at your heartstrings for years to come. A family vacation, a new addition to your family, a beloved pet, grandparents walking hand in hand, and every other precious moment in life can be captured, treasured, and remembered forever.
