Northern California / SF Bay Area/Marin
My brief bio...with a little pseudointellectual psychobabble ......
My name is Michael, am easy to get along with.... love creating "quality"photos.
..... I look for for people with character, interesting faces or emerging talent to produce unique images.
ASMP past member. Devoted to photography for decades.
Always desiring to catch that elusive, fleeting, magic instant, that wondrous image that stands out from the usual --- the one that makes you say "LOVE" !!
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people (are) so full of doubts. ~~~
There are only two kinds of people who are really fascinating:...... people who know absolutely everything, and people who know absolutely nothing. ~Oscar Wilde
favorite phrase: " chacun à son goût "!!
I joined MM to establish connections with a few talented folks ( models, actors, dancers, MUAs, & photographers), who enjoy being creative.
Collaboration ??? Sincere inquiries welcomed. WRITE ME A NOTE !!! TAGS are always nice...but not always inspirational. HINT !!! Do NOT quote me your rates unless you want mine.
TRADE vs PAID WORK: Occasional TFP, if exchange of talents are appropriate otherwise compensation for my work could be offered.
Kindly note : I usually decline to shoot models with tattoos or hair dyed weird, gaudy colors.ie... ( purple, green, pink, etc) & I always avoid "Divas" like the plague.
May I mention.....Paid assignments (for the photographer) are welcome and have priority over pro bono or TF shoots.
NO games... will shoot with models with whom I have had Email contact: & a phone conversation or met in person.
I wish to mention the outstanding photographic work of these talented photographers who have really impressed me. And whose work I admire:
Dan Warner (DW)
Poster(pro bono) for Haight Ashbury Clinic (San Francisco)
Magazine covers for: McDonald & Co
Les Girls Magazine
ZMPHOT has 30 friends.
