The Lansing Art Gallery and Education Center has been so supportive in helping to plan out, provide guidance and access to resources, and overall in helping to facilitate Michigan's Natural Landscapes Gallery Exhibition which will be shown at museums, galleries, and science centers across the state. Thank you to Director Michelle and her team for all of their hard work.
Mario Swaidan is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensed 14 CFR Part 107 Commercial Drone Pilot, and was the first person to take and pass the FAA’s Exam when it was first released to the public at the Michigan Institute of Aviation Technology in 2016. Mario began Michigan’s Natural Landscapes with three prints at the University of Michigan. Once Mario learned more about improved healing times of patients in the presence of nature, he pursued more of Michigan's rugged nature photography to expand the current three pictures featured. Mario has traveled across the Upper and Lower Peninsulas and even received approval from The Historic Mackinac Island State Parks to conduct an aerial photo shoot at the island all to include in Michigan's Natural Landscapes Gallery Exhibition.
