The Mad River Photo Company is a sole proprietorship owned by me, Michael A. Dixon; (at MadRiverPhotoComapny dot com) based in the wonderful city of New Haven CT alongside the Yale University campus..

I first responded to an ad back in October of 1977 which appeared in Waterbury, Connecticut's Newspaper which essentially said: "Travel the country, see the U.S.A." It turned out to be for taking baby and kid's pictures in department stores throughout the northeast.

Since then I have worked for over two dozen studios all over the country photographing church directories, school pictures, traveling glamour shoots, mall promotions, casino and night clubs, and baby diaper service 'at home' portraits.

There really is a Mad River. It is located in Waterbury CT and runs right along side my birth place, the St. Mary's Hospital. Cool, eh? And also, my initials are...MAD!

The Mad River Photo Company is my first entrepreneur endeavor. The company specializes in special effects portrait photography shot on location at trade shows, fairs, festivals, flea markets, et cetera with proofs viewable and for sale via online.
