About Me[b]Last Update: 16 December 2010[/b]
The human body, in its natural form, has been a subject of artistic endeavor for centuries. My approach strives to combine unique settings, situations and an attention to colors and textures.
As a professional photographer, I understand the need to involve a model, perhaps and MUA, stylist, etc. into the creative process. Creating art, especially photographic art, is a collaborative process.
This is one of three portfolios that I maintain on Model Mayhem. Each portfolio has a different focus and audience, but you main wish to check them out. My [b]main portfolio[/b] is:
http://www.modelmayhem.com/michaelleach [i]Glamour, fashion, gothic, faeries, angels, etc.[/i]
You will find a list of some 100+ models, MUAs, stylists, etc. that I have worked with over the years on my main portfolio.
I also have a portfolio that highlights horror, blood, zombies, damsels, and other dark themes:

[b]Current Themed Work:[/b]
[b][i]Musicians and Artists[/i][/b] - capturing their love of the arts in an artistic manner.
[b][i]The Beauty in Nature[/i][/b] - taking advantage of the warm weather and the beautiful locals of New England, I will be working with models in the outdoors - islands, lakes, secluded groves, rocky hills, and even swamps - to capture the natural form of a woman in the natural setting.
[b][i]Primary Colors[/i][/b] - a series of shoots focusing on one or more primary (and, yes, some secondary) colors. Similar in nature to my avatar. These are not necessarily nude or artistic nude themes - the themes can include lingerie, corsets, etc. I really want to do a red, green, white and violet motif.
[b][i]Texture Contrasts[/i][/b] - this theme will juxtapose a "rough" texture/fabric with the silky smoothness of a woman's skin; examples include: with a vegetable sack (with veggies as background pieces); posing on a rock outcropping in a forest; surrounded by nails, and screws and bolts and tools; wrapped in a fishing net (maybe with some real fish, too!); etc.
[b]Some General Information[/b]
Models are always welcomed to bring along a friend to any shoot we do - I want a model to feel relaxed and comfortable: this makes a better shoot for all involved.
Indoor shooting is principally done at the Loft Studio (Attleboro, MA), which is accessible by "T" (commuter rail from South Station) and car (on-street parking is available). Of course, outdoor shots can be pretty much done anywhere.
