I am a Professional Artist and I get payed for my Art. I do limited few (rarely do) TFP/CD
In the last few months I have been fighting Cancer.Acute Myeloid Leukemia. and have been doing very little art. But better now and I am ready to do create some Art
It's unique one of a kind. That is Art more than just photography.I am a professional with skills that are worth paying for.
Three things you must know about me
1 is I am a Artist! Photography is one of the areas that do.
2 is "The World is My Studio!"
3 is "I'm not the best but I'm Damn Good at what I Do!"
I like to see myself as a Artist that is a film photographer. but I'm use my digital more and more on model shoots. My primary cameras I use are 35mm film. I believe that there is a quality and feel in film,that can not reprodue by digital at this time.I do very little Post Production on the Film shots. I do 90% of "the Classic/Retro Look" in the camera settings. Good Film Cost money so if you want me to shoot with film be ready for the price.I'm Over looked by most people, But the ones who have me Photograph them are always happy with my work. I eazy to work with and my out look is art is a creative moment between the model and the photograher. The end product is what its all about.I don't do the pretty little shots. I do gritty,real,and some what classic visions of what llife is and isn't.
My Equipment a odd mix of newer and older cameras that I use. And shoot Black & White around 75% of the time.
Canon Rebel T3 Digital
Canon Rebel XT-Digital
Canon Rebel K2 35mm film
Canon AE-1 35mm film
Sears TLS (Ricoh Singlex TLS) 35mm film
AFGA Optima I 35mm film

"A fun and talented artist to work with! I would defintely shoot with Michael again - we spent a day shooting and wandering around and made some beautiful work. "
"Michael is cool. My husband did go with me for the shoot, but I felt totally comfortable around him, he was very respectful of my boundaries. All in all I didn't get any bad or weird 'vibes' from him, I felt totally comfortable working with him, I would work with him again, a...nd I wouldn't be uncomfortable around him if my husband were unable to accompany me. My husband just asked me to add in that he liked him as well." more less
I see the Models that I work with as People that I meet in life. I just try capture them as they are.
