Michael Lane is a former law enforcement professional, US Army Captain and commercial photographer. 

Born and raised in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, Michael developed an early and ever-growing appreciation for the natural artistry of the world around him. At the age of ten, with a Kodak Brownie in hand, Michael's fascination with photography emerged, and he was soon snapping shots of most everything he saw.

This passion for capturing moments stayed with Michael through the years, even as he advanced a career in the military police and civilian law enforcement. In 1984, determined to pursue his passion professionally, he earned a degree in commercial photography and launched M Lane Photography. Specializing in portraiture, weddings, public relations, lanescapes, architectural and travel, his photo assignments have taken him across the United States and into France. His work has been featured in magazines, print ads, web designs and book covers.

Over the past twenty-five years, Michael has distinguished himself as the "official photographer" for several bluegrass music festivals and as the "photographer of choice" for many bluegrass recording artists and musicians. At home among the people and music of Appalachia, he regularly photographs live performances, studio sessions, CD covers and promotional art.

A life-long resident of North Carolina, Michael currently makes his home in Lexington with his wife of 18 years, Alexa and their Jack Russell terriers, Callie and Chloe.
