Mike Kukucska is a contemporary photographer based in Hamilton, Ontario. Kukuscka has lived in Hamilton for twenty years, and was born and rasied in Welland, Ontario. Kukuscka specializes in single image astrophotography and long exposure landscapes, but also changes this by occasionally taking photographs without a tripod. Kukuscka states, “For me, it’s about chasing very special and subtle light and slowing down the world just a little bit to capture more than the eye can see.”
The subject matter of Kukuscka’s photography ranges from a variety of locations, including Death Valley in California, New Mexico and Utah. Kukuscka has an entire series of photographs dedicated to images of locations within the Golden Horseshoe, both during the day and at night.
