My name is Michael. I am a photographer in the Prescott, Arizona area. I absolutely love photographing people. The high you get during a photo shoot lasts longer for me than any other non-chemical high. It is a true rush to be on location or in the studio with a model or models whom also love what they do.
Although I will, on occasion, have very specific ideas and directions I want the shoot to follow, most times my photography follows the personality of the model/s. I am easy to work with and will never pressure a model into a pose they don’t feel comfortable with, however I do encourage and challenge you feel confident and have fun. I've always enjoyed working directly with the model or with a creative team to achieve a collaborative look. I also have a make-up and hair stylist available for the shoot if needed, her name is Stephanie and she does amazing work!!
My goals for my images have been for personal portfolio’s both model and mine. Specific shoots on contract for outside companies are usually paid to me and in turn I will pay the model/s. I will do TF shoots on request.
Hit me up if you'd like to shoot with me. I now have a studio and am collecting a number of backdrops, wardrobe and props. I am available in the Prescott, Arizona area and also the Laguna Beach area. Engagement and senior photos are always amazing on the beach. :)
