Mayhem # 28107
Back in the 70’s I made it my mission to meet and study with my favorite fine art photographers including Ansel Adams, Robert Heineken, Wynn Bullock and others. This combined with my 12 years directing TV, my college fine art training and 50 years making images about things and people close to me has given me a unique perspective on the world that I hope my work reflects.
Note: I don't use retouchers. I make art not commerce. And now for the "pay me" part. I neither charge nor pay for the work you see here. My theory has always been "no one gets paid unless everyone is getting paid", and since commercial shoots for me these days are few and far between that means if you are looking for $$ instead of images I'm the wrong person. So if you contact me for a shoot I'm going to assume you are offering TFP and that you are willing to pose nude for me. And yes I will happily shoot commercial style images for you in return if that's what you want.

"I've worked with Mike once and had to work with him again because I had such a great time and great pictures too! Highly recommended and cannot wait to have the chance to pose for him again."
"The best! Fun person, easy to work with, always produces awesome images. You couldn't ask for more from a photographer."
"He is the BEST! One of my favorite photographers to work with, and one of my favorite people, in general. We've worked together more than five times over the years, and it just gets better!"
Ilford ad for it's new papers announced at Photokina 2012 using my image.
Photokina 2012. Ilford debuts a new paper line using my images.
A photo I made of my Grandparents was chosen as Vogue It's Pic of the day. Now it's ONLY the website not the magazine but it's cool never the less. And to date they have chosen six of my images as Pic of the Day! One is slated for the actual print version of Vogue IT. I'll post it here when it actually publishes.
"The show was really successful and extremely busy. We received loads of compliments on the choice of images and have also been asked by a couple of our distributors if they can use them at their exhibitions which is great news."

".....what had to be one of my favorite booths at the show [Photokina 2010, was], Ilford/Harman...."

If not I just wanted to say that the show ([Photokina 2012) went great and your images looked amazing on both the gloss and new Cotton Smooth. Especially the Cotton Smooth because as you know I'm a huge fan of the Allie image and the paper is fantastic! We had a lot of positive comments on the both the image and the paper as they complemented each other perfectly.
Thanks again, as always, for your support.
