Presently, we are looking to open up more with our free photo shoot workshops, using our concepts, your ideas or for model training purposes. If you have some concepts, we would like to hear them. We are slightly selective on what concepts we will shoot as time is always something delicate to balance. We want to hear from you.

Proud to present a conceptual video shoot called What You Destroy with William and Shannon Brown
Michael G Brown, having started his career through photojournalism and photo manipulation, is a three time published author and a well known professional photographer, owner of Michael G Brown Photography. Michael has done commercial work for commercial businesses, such as Lerman Decor, Walmart, No Limits Studios, Honzov, Corrupted Miindz ent., Cannibal Desciplez and Vegas Music, and for private clients wanting family portraits or personal photography. He helps aspiring and professional models worldwide. His ideas are sometimes radical or unique but he's always professional and patient, giving his clients his full devotion and respect.
Michael's favored aspects are expressive, photo-manipulations and glamour photography, using light, shadow and the subjects own natural beauty to create magnificent works of art or great concepts and unrealistic ideas turned reality. Michael does shoot artistic nudes when requested but would prefer to shoot implied nudity where most of the sensitive parts are covered up if he has to shoot this genre. He refuses to shoot anything smutty or pornographic. "Sexy is in seeing a look, an expression, or the tease of seeing more without seeing more," is one of his more common phrases. He works out of his own residence in Alexandria, Ontario, Canada, but travels to bring the studio to his clients or to a designated location when requested. Not one to shy away from new ideas or experiences, Michael will go the distance to capture beauty where ever it may be found. He has a growing fan base in Canada, the United States and across the internet through Deviant Art, Facebook and many other sites.
For models that can bring something to his portfolio, he offers his work with the compensation of Time For DVD and will do touch ups and edits at no additional charge. From time to time, Michael searches for great opportunities to work with very experienced models to achieve his own desired works of art. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran model, Michael is sure to negotiate and arrange a photo shoot with the ideas and interests of both the model and his own in mind at everyone's best convenience. All models or clients receive all high quality photos from the shoot and Michael G Brown's unique touch ups and manipulations. Prices are very economical and lower than the standard. He is able to travel anywhere in the world with compensation.
So message him and let him know what you want to do and what you are looking to gain.
From the Michael G Brown School of Life:
As a model, you need to be safe, secure and comfortable when shooting as well as providing a proper work ethic to ensure the shoot is great. Always bring an escort, one who will not distract, will not cause discomfort, can bare witness and knock the fuck out the photographer if she/he crosses the line. Many that refuse an escort could potentially be rapists, those that want to try getting laid by model or perverts wishing to pressure you to do something you don't want to do. If photographers refuse you to allow an escort, do not work with them. If you decline your own escort invite, please be aware who you are getting to shoot you. Ask about them and research. A photo shoot should be a fun experience that yields great quality work and not a night in the hospital swabbing for evidence. Be safe. Always ask. Always inform yourself.
Ask about a model / photographer release form. When a photographer takes a photo, it becomes hers or his work of art or intellectual property. A release form gives you some of the rights to your own photo, such as the right to display, copy, print or sell. I do the photography and am happy with just providing the service. I don't feel the need to hold your photos hostage. They are yours and so with that said, my release forms give you the exact same rights that I have with no exclusions and in my opinion, this should be standard practice. How can you not own the rights to your own photo?
If you are nervous for a first time, that is alright. We will work through it. Taking any recreational drug or drinking any alcohol before the shoot is forbidden and should not be encouraged by any photographer. Your escort is there as protection and we the photographers should be there to help you be comfortable and confident, so there is no need for any courage boosters in any form... plus it ruins your look and photos.
Underage models are always welcome, but you need to have a legal guardian sign forms as well as be present during shooting. Photo ID from both model and guardian need to be presented. If your guardian does not seem legit or your IDs are suspected to be fake, they will be reported to the local authorities. I have a name, a family and a legal registered business to consider. If you can't abide by these rules, do not be in a haste to get photos taken.
Every once in a while you meet bad models. Either bad people or just stupid people. It makes one question whether they should ever engage in working with models again or even pick up a camera ever again. I have recently had this happen. A model who lured me into shooting for nothing. I have principles and morals obviously, but I was offered a small partnership in shooting and selling pics by a new model who wanted to sell Artistic Nude sets to which I have never done. I decided to expand my horizons and give it a shot with the understanding that I do not do smutty shoots and will not engage into anything pornographic. So I took the chance and did so. Model / Photographer release form signed, took the time to coach and teach her in both the online world, modelling and safety (something I always preach), and also agreed that (as normal) no nude photos would ever hit facebook. I did this shoot for free with no compensation of any kind only a promise to sell photos. I arranged accounts with Zivity and Diverxity which I was told are what most photographer / models use to sell sets. She never made her accounts. Clients had requested through me to arrange paid shoots for her, to which she cancelled last minute. She then asked that nude pics be removed from DA "Because I don't want the world to see me naked and I have friends on Deviant Art" "but you can keep the semi nudes up and sell my pics", to which I obliged. She then last minute cancelled a glamour shoot which I had booked several clients for at a hotel suite I reserved and paid for. Luckily, most showed up, so not a big loss. I then receive a message that I somehow have reneged on our agreement and she wants the semi nudes down too but selling the pics are still ok!!!!! I wonder why people waste the time of others. I have since blocked her on the few sites that I have accounts on and I even went as far as to delete my facebook account because I do not wish to be subjected to further stupidity from anyone again. Facebook is no big loss, but then my wife gets harassed by her for stupidity... And threatening to ruin my reputation... Kind of funny in a way. Morals of story: Be weary on who you work with. If they show signs of being a junkie, avoid them. Most importantly, never help someone that much for free especially when they seem to just need quick money.
