We’ve been fortunate enough to have Michael Huang take photos for us at Kentucky Basketball and Football games the past several years. This week, Dr. Mike, a graduate of UK and its College of Medicine, is the subject of a profile in Kentucky Alumni Magazine.
Ann Blackford tells the story of how Dr. Mike’s family immigrated to the US from Taiwan in 1961, his childhood in Lexington and early love for UK sports, time at UK, and career in medicine and occasionally photography. I especially love the part about how his side gig led him to the love of his life, Michelle.
Huang met his wife Michelle in 2013 when a mutual friend introduced them at a Thursday Night Live outdoor social event in Lexington. Although they hit it off and exchanged numbers, they didn’t see each other again until Michelle attended a UK football game with her parents later that year. She knew he was a doctor but had no idea he was a photographer when she spotted him on the sidelines with a big camera. She texted him and asked if he was at the game taking pictures. He said yes and asked her to stand up. He took a beautiful picture of her and tagged her on Facebook, which soon went viral among their friends.
Great stuff. Read the entire thing at the link below.
