My brief bio...with a little pseudointellectual psychobabble ......
My name is Michael, am easy to get along with......... I look for for people with character, interesting faces or emerging talent to produce quality, unique images. Things I admire most in my personal and professional life include savoir faire, an ability to emote, sensuality, elegance, understanding posing & composition together with a desire to be involved in ART.
ASMP past member.
Devoted to photography for decades.
Always desiring to catch that elusive, fleeting, magic moment, that wondrous image that stands out from the usual --- the one that makes you say..."WOW"!!
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.
PLZ NOTE **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 Do NOT quote me your rates unless you want mine.**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 should be offered.
Kindly note : I usually prefer to decline shooting models sporting large, or many tattoos and with hair dyed weird, gaudy colors.ie... ( purple, green, pink, etc) . Plus I tend to avoid "Divas" like the plague.
NO games... will shoot with models with whom I have had Email contact: & a phone conversation or met in person. Period !!
**** NOTE most FRs are really meaningless unless there is a real desire for cooperation without financial remuneration.****
I wish to mention the outstanding photographic work of these talented photographers who have impressed me. And whose work I admire:
Dan Warner (DW)
