About Me

Last update: 29 May 2017

Email address: [email protected] - the best way to reach me.

Follow Me on Twitter: @MichaelL_Photo

More of my work at:


Spring 2017 Themes: Leather Skirt Project; Spring Flowers;  Gothic Ballerina; Fashion in the Swamp; and (hopefully) some Cosplay.

READ: Friend Requests - I will ONLY approve a Friend Request if we have worked together.  Do not friend me to get my attention - rather message or email me. 

None at the moment.

I am a professional photographer, specializing in fashion, gothic, pinup, glamour, fashion, historical and artistic work (like the faeries, angels, etc.).  I do this because I love the creative process, and I particularly enjoy working with other creative professionals, who can share their talents, vision and skills. 

All that said, I can certainly do proms, class portraits, corporate, and similar projects.  However, I would suggest you only hire me if you want something different, unique and out of the norm!

As an example of my catalog/fashion work, please check out the Costume Company web site:

Most of the photography for that site was shot by me - so, if you are a fashion company, designer, etc., feel free to contact me. 

For models who manage their own web sites: I am available for short or long term contract, and open to a number of possible business relationships (e.g. content trade; video production - I can shoot and edit) - email or message me and we can negotiate.

For models under 18: I am open to working with you and your parent(s)/guardian to develop your portfolio.  Parents: I can provide references - just ask. 

General Information: Models with whom I have worked will tell you that I am professional, respectful and easy to work with.  I will provide each model with a full set of unedited jpg photos, usually delivered via within a couple days of a shoot.  In most cases, I will edit up to 6-10 photos (per look/theme) of your choice at no cost.  Should you want another picture file format, that is open to discussion (e.g. "raw").  I'm flexible with all this. 

Models are always free to bring along a friend/escort to any shoot.
