About Me

Hello Fellow MMer's
   Michael here, I'm a Las Vegas based freelance photographer. I specialize in landscape, sporting events, expos/conventions, concerts, fashion, portrait and glamour photography. I shoot only in digital format. I have been a professional photographer for just over 2 years now. Photography was mainly a hobby for me for almost 10 years before making it my profession. Although landscape photography is still my favorite style of photography, I've grown to love fashion and glamour portraiture and I do that mostly on location. The Nevada desert and surrounding areas around Las Vegas provide some amazing backdrops for glamour photography and I never pass up the opportunity to shoot on location.

    Photography is one of my many passions in life. I love seeing the beauty in everything! I love life and working with people.

    I due travel to other cities for photo shoots so look for my announcements and upcoming travel dates on here, my website (which is currently under repair) and on my Facebook page.

    I am published in multiple local magazines and several other magazines and websites based off of the coverage that I have provided for events, expos and conventions.

***DO NOT TEXT ME ABOUT BUSINESS!!***  Either call me or message me on here or on my Facebook page (linked above), I have a dead zone in my house, which unfortunately is in my office where I spend most of my time and I miss a LOT of texts while I'm in there. I may even be on a location out in the middle of nowhere. And to be honest, you can cover more in a ten minute conversation than you could in texting back and forth for a few hours in between texts.

***UPDATE***
As of (06-21-14) I will be on a 3 week break from my classes, so if you would like to set up a shoot, contact me as soon as possible, I'm already booking dates. Payed work will take priority over TF work, BUT, if you have an idea that will benefit both of our ports I'd be very happy to work something out with you (but only if you are serious, flakes need not apply).

***UPDATE***
(06-23-14) Please send me a message or a tag if you want to add me as a friend. My friends list got way out of control, so I deleted over 1600 people. Most of them were people that haven't been on here in quite a long time.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
~~LOCATIONS THAT I LOVE TO WORK AT~~
Red Rock Canyon
The Boulder Dry Lake Bed
The Spring Mountain State Park
The Floyd Lamb Park
Lake Mead
Lake Las Vegas
The Nelson Ghost Town, old mines/caves and the Colorado River just down the road.
The Las Vegas Strip, Hotels and the Las Vegas welcome sign
Town Square
The Mojave National Forest in California (about 1 hour from Las Vegas)
Mt. Charleston (about 1 hour from Las Vegas)
I will travel out to Venice Beach, Santa Monica and it's surrounding areas to shoot.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
~~ ESCORTS~~
   As of now (06-08-14) I will no longer allow escorts or friends at or on my shoots. I'm all set with the distractions of friends, boyfriends or husbands second guessing everything we do at a shoot. I'm not only trying to create some amazing images, but I also like to have a relaxed environment at my shoots. I will NEVER ask a model to do anything that she (or he) does not want to do (which is all covered at our meet and greet). I have plenty of references on here that you are more than welcome to contact them about me if you like.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
~~ MEET & GREET~~
   If you are a Las Vegas local, we WILL have a meet & greet and that goes for everyone that will be involved in or at our shoot. The meet is to go over the locations, wardrobe to be used, length of the shoot, release forms, deposits, compensation (if any) and what we all expect out of the shoot. I'm through with people who blow off shoots or do not even have the courtesy to call to cancel or reschedule. A meet shows me that you are serious about your work. NO MEET = NO SHOOT!!

   As far as people from out of town go, I know that a meet is usually impossible unless you are already in town and have the time to do so, other than that, we can get everything set up over the phone, but we will at least speak (not text or email) to each other prior to working together.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
~~PROFESSIONAL COURTESY~~
   Remember Models (and this goes for photographers as well) communication is key for a successful shoot, before, during and after we work together. Lack of communication and no-showing on a shoot is the best way to get a bad reputation and no work. If you are a no-show no-call and do not get back to me in a timely fashion, I will post a negative remark about you on my credits list and not work with you again. Us photographers do talk to each other and we always talk about models or anyone else for that matter that flake on us. Don't waste my time and I won't waste yours.

With all that being said, if you like my work and you feel like we would create some beautiful images together, please feel free to contact me and we'll set something up.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and checking out my portfolio.

NOW LETS SHOOT!!!
