After growing up in Germany and working in Europe as an apprentice and assistant to photographers for several years, a vacation in 1988 brought Michael Grimm to New York. Since then the city has been his home and base for a photography business, allowing Grimm to travel the world. His work has appeared in magazines like Travel & Leisure, Departures, Metropolitan Home, and House Beautiful. He has also shot resort properties including Maradiva Resort (Mauritius), The Sands (Mauritius), Little Dix Bay (British Virgin Islands), Caneel Bay (Us Virgin Islands), The Crane (Barbados), Starwood Hotels and Resorts, The Gansevoort and many others.
