Mikael Gustafson is the Director of Photography for Urban Treehouse. He has a passion for the great outdoors and thrives in the most extreme conditions, from snow camping to scuba diving.
Mikael also co-owns Sea Stand Productions with his fiancé and Co-Founder of Urban Treehouse, Heather Kennedy, where the two produce documentaries, commercials, and web videos for a variety of companies with a focus in non-profit organizations.
“I like to think of myself as a steward of the earth first and a cameraman second. I couldn’t do one without the other. I spend my time in the wild places around me as much as possible. Besides carrying a camera from place to place, I enjoy backpacking, hiking, climbing, and most of all scuba diving. My greatest passion is underwater cinematography, where I get the opportunity to share the view from under the great blue. It’s a place seldom explored and there is so much to learn about our world from the ocean.”
