MikeSpencer1-2Mike Spencer, a Wilmington, N.C. based Photojournalist, has worked in the news industry for over 15 years and is a Staff Photographer with The StarNews. Mike joined the StarNews as a staff photographer in 2007. Previously, he worked at The Fayetteville Observer in Fayetteville, N.C.

A native of South Carolina, he moved to North Carolina shortly after graduating high school and attended Randolph Community College in Asheboro, N.C., where he earned an associate’s degree in photographic technology with an emphasis on photojournalism.

An avid animal lover, Mike has a passion for photographing pets and capturing moments that will reveal their personality and character. He has honed his skills documenting the people and places of North Carolina. In his free time, Mike enjoys spending time with family, friends, walks with his dog Ruby and going camping.

I am excited to join the Wilmington Fur Ball and to help advance the cause of animals in need. I look forward to seeing everyone at the Wilmington Fur Ball in November.
