Get to know Michele Celentano:

Family is everything to me! I have the most amazing highly functioning dysfunctional family. Some are blood and some are not. That's just how I roll. As an only child I have always adopted close friends into my family. I was raised by my grandparents in Brooklyn NY and my siblings were my three cousins and my friends. I've been lucky enough to have not one but two awesome step-dads, a starter husband, a forever husband, a daughter of my own, two beautiful bonus daughters, my daughter's other mother who has become one of my greatest friends and friends I love deeply and I who I know love me back. 

The greatest highlight of my career came at the age of 35 when (Canon USA Canon Explorer of Light) invited me into the Canon Explorer of Light program. There are only 40 Explorers of Light in the US and I am still pinching myself that I stand among 39 world renowned educators. Teaching and public speaking at conventions is my jam!!! I have been teaching photography internationally for more than 20 years. From intimate workshops to massive keynote presentations, teaching fires me up like nothing else. As I was coming up in the industry I would attend workshops several times a year. The instructors soon became family (that's a surprise, right?) and soon I was being asked to teach classes. Teaching has brought me to Australia, South Korea, Italy, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Canada, and most of the US. There is nothing more rewarding than giving back to a community that has given so much to me.
