Michael C. Gutierrez, fine art photographer, is currently residing in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  Gutierrez attended the University of North Carolina Charlotte, The School of Visual Arts, NY and The International Academy of Design Technology studying Photography and Graphic Design.  Michael has shown in galleries throughout the United States and has work in the University of Texas San Antonio’s permanent collection.  He is currently represented in Las Cruces, NM by Unsettled Gallery.

His 14 years of experience are a combination of formal education and more importantly life experience gained by his many travels throughout the U.S. and abroad.  Michael’s travels are not only inspirational; they serve as a necessary tool for which he clarifies and defines his own unique vision and voice as an artist. Gutierrez continues to push his artistic boundaries, creating his own path free of all limitations in order to share honest stories about the human journey, each following his own system for creating images, a system he calls "HE-13."

Guided by his mantra, "No limits. Push your medium forward," Michael's artistic process is intense and integrated into everything he does. Gutierrez states, "I trust what I do, in all aspects of photography. When you are your own greatest influence there are no limits.  I openly receive ideas and will continue to push my medium forward.”
