Welcome to Michael Corben Photography.
I am a photographer with over 6 years experience. I studied at The Art Institute-North majoring in Photography. Also have done tons of workshops, art classes, online classes etc.
I took a break from school but hope to return for non photography purposes and just for self improvement. I believe one should never stop learning.
I am a crazy guy.. I try to make all my shoots as fun as possible. I can take a while to shake my shyness but I open up lol. I am not a morning person so morning shoots may be a bit boring at first until my redbull kicks in
I do have the best female assistant in the world who does accompany me when her schedule permits. I am currently seeking another one to fill in for her.. so if your interested please lmk. Only female assistants who want to learn apply. Those with MUA experience will be considered first.
I take my work seriously and do not waste anyone's time. I hope everyone I work with can do the same.
I am open for both paid work and TFP. Please contact me with your ideas and I am sure we can make something happen.
I can provide references if needed and escorts are fine as long as they do not interfere in a negative way. I have never had a problem with an escort.
Photos for TFP will be web-size images for online use. They will not be acceptable for editing use. If you would like RAW images it can be arranged. I will begin working on images immediately after our shoot and will host the images for download or viewing within 72 hours. No images will be public without the models approval first. Again everything is negotiable and I am more then willing to work with you on anything.
If you book a date please please please keep in contact and if you need to cancel please do so in a timely manner.
If you need help with transportation I can help either by carpooling or helping with fuel charges. I have no problem going above and beyond to get a shoot done.
I have a home studio now for private use that I SOMETIMES invite models to use but its very seldom. I have a portable studio also that can be setup in a hotel, office, bedroom etc.. I also have an outside setup for nature and urban locations. I am ready for anything so whatever ideas you have I can make possible.
**I currently do not shoot nudes. Its not something I am looking to add to my port at this time. Paid shoots are fine for model use only. Implied work may be considered**
Thanks for viewing my profile. I hope we can work together soon.
Looking to complete the following themed shoots asap. Contact me if you are interested in one of them.
Abduction.. (secluded woods scene, model being lifted into the air like she is being abducted by something)
Fire Woman (either a burnt down property location, or model in a Forrest fire/or playing a guitar on fire.. fire in hands etc.. something along those lines)
Fear set.. (need some acting experience which will portray fears.. A murderer chasing you, a ghost, death, etc..) Heck we can do your greatest fear.. but it will be a collection..
Duct tape apparel collection
Funny outdoor stuff.. Like a funny lost scene, maybe shipwrecked, abandoned, hitchhiker etc.. but with a twist of humor..
