Michael first discovered photography during his personal recovery from alcoholism and soon his newfound passion became a bit of an obsession. Mr. Blanchard discovered that spending time focusing on the beauty of nature provided the meditative experience that was lacking in his recovery. He started posting his scenic shots on Facebook, and quickly gained a large following. This validation encouraged him to publish a book of his photos, paired with stories, anecdotes, and observations surrounding his recovery.
