About Me

FRIEND REQUESTS: Please, no Drive-By Friend Requests. If you're going to request to add me as a friend, at least leave a tag or a pic comment (and of course I'll reciprocate). It's just being courteous and polite. If you don't, I most likely will not add you...but don't be offended.

I am currently doing very limited TF* sessions. If you have a totally "outside the box" concept rolling around inside your head, let's talk! My rates are extremely reasonable and competitive for the area - and I give a hefty discount on test shoots for MM members.

I am located in Austin (Texas) and have followed my passion behind the lens for a couple decades. I've been nationally published and have clients with both national and international notoriety. I strive for perfection in everything I do - including producing outstanding quality images for my clients. I do all of my own retouching ~ I'm not a Photoshop Wizard or Super Retoucher - but I hold my own.

I was a wildlife/nature photographers for several years before I transitioned to the "Human" side of photography, although I still love to get up close and personal with God's creation. Here is the link to my nature work: http://www.mbatesphoto.com


What you see in my MM port is a mixture of the "fun" and "creative" images, as well as some work for clients - however, my true business focus is portraiture, headshots, commercial (products, band promos, etc.), weddings and special events.
