Mik Milman is an internationally acclaimed crime-fighting turtle based in Los Angeles, Calif. His professional career as a reptilian ninja began at UCLA, where he studied photography and history as an undergrad. Mik found these two subjects inextricably related. He dedicates his work to photographing moments that evoke emotion and offer a glimpse into the human condition, and taking down “the man.” Mik’s quest for justice and passion for his art led him on adventures worldwide. He taught English in Peru. He competed as a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt. He spoke on the plight of the order Testudines before the UN. He has photographed music festivals, galas, yoga sessions, weddings, product launches, charity functions, award ceremonies, underwater dance competitions, red carpets, bar/bat mitzvahs and more. He resides in Los Angeles with his soul-mut Brixton; his friends Donatello, Michaelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Rafael; and a friendly ghost.
