Now before you ask yourself the question "Did he use the wrong spelling of flair for his name?" To that I will say no I did not. Although I do like to experiment with lens flares from time to time (I mostly blame J.J. Abrams for this.) I thought that if I used the word flare in my name people would come to expect some type of lens flare in all of my work and I didn't want to limit myself like that. However the alternate spelling of the word, flair, came with the definition of "A special or instinctive aptitude or ability for doing something well. Stylishness and originality." Now depending on who you ask, this is another dubious proposition but none the less that's how I got my name.
Welcome to my Model Mayhem page.
Originally my main focus in life was video production but I picked up photography to learn more about how cameras worked and because most of the time photography is simpler than video production. If you can believe it this is how I like to relax sometimes. In case you couldn't tell by now, yes I am a little strange, unorthodox, and eccentric but if I don't do it then who will? If you're alright with that I look forward to working with you and I hope you look forward to working with me.
**As of January 2014 I will primarily be focusing on paid assignments.**

I had such a great time shooting with Mike! He was very respectful with lots of positive reinforcement. He let's you do your own thing, so free-posers would love the opportunity to work with him. I've only gotten to work with him once so far, but I'm really looking forward to getting in front of his lens again.
I just wanted to say thanks for the incredible pictures! I knew you'd be a great photographer from looking at your portfolio, but you totally exceeded even my high expectations. Also, you edited the pictures SUPER quick, so thank you for the swiftness as well. I'd love to work with you again sometime.
Now, about the bad jokes...
Mike (Flair) was professional, gave good direction and I learned things that I hope will make me a better model. Shoot with Mike you will have some laughs and a lot of great photos.
Mike was a great guy to work with! He is very professional and has a great sense of humor. It was a pleasure working with him and can't wait to shoot again.
Mike was great to shoot with - professional, easy to collaborate with, and made the most of the location! He came with great reviews & he certainly lived up to them. Would recommend him to anyone.
Mike will take the time to make sure everything is perfect in the photo - and it shows. So glad I got a chance to work with him.
So I just wanted to say it was a great time working with you! I'm more than pleased with how the pictures from the shoot turned out. They are awesome! And with all the comments and lists those pictures got...I know others feel the same way!
Mike was a pleasure working with. He was very respectful and professional. He made my body look pretty fantastic in the photos we took. Would completely work with him again.
