I've been taking pictures since I was old enough for my parents to let me hold a camera. When I wasn't taking the picture, I was posing up a storm in the rest! Now photography is an extension of my 10 years spent in the fashion industry as a MUA, stylist, fashion editor and designer. I've refined my skills through a professional education centered around fashion photography and photo editing.
My aesthetic is pretty. I don't do weird. I want to work with models that aren't afraid to pose and discover a new part of themselves on a shoot. I'm not afraid to work with new talent. I use panoramic backgrounds and thrive on natural light. I delve deep into back stories and concepts inspired by classic film and iconic pop culture. I seek inspiration from art that is not just photography.

My work is geared towards publication submissions right now. So if you're interested, JUST ASK! I don't shoot amateur portfolios TF but if it's agency related I am happy to test for you. Otherwise I have very reasonable rates and can offer you hair, makeup, styling and coaching.
I am also the editor of a unique, new digital publication designed to feature all artists involved in the creation of photos in all genres of photography! We welcome full, unpublished editorial submissions:

I've enjoyed branching out into Men's Magazine style work where I've been well received by publications. As a female photographer I use the relationship with my intended viewer to create the sexual tension in the shoot, sharing my fantasies by recreating what I envision with aid of my model.
I also design hats which I sometimes use or make for shoots! http://Etsy.com/shop/mikofabulous
I really enjoy what I do and like seeing the work of other artists on social media and Model Mayhem. So FRIEND REQUESTS, COMMENTS, TAGS, LIKES, FOLLOWS and HASHTAGS are always appreciated! You can follow me on Istagram @MikoPhotoFashion and Twitter @MikoPhoto!
