About Me

“All of us need to be in touch with a mysterious, tantalizing source of inspiration that teases our sense of wonder and goads us on to life’s next adventure.” ― Rob Brezsny

Who am I?

I’m Michael – a beauty, editorial, and fashion photographer searching for a muse.

- I am here to network with industry professionals and work with talented and creative individuals.

- My work has been published and showcased and I am constantly working on new projects and concepts.

What is my approach?

I am a storyteller at heart. Imagery that evokes emotion, captivates the senses, and draws the viewer deeper into the backstory is what I seek to create.
- My focus is gradually moving from beauty and glamour to a more fashion and fashion editorial emphasis, although I still have a passion for the beauty genre. I am highly-invested in creating a diverse portfolio which showcases my unique aesthetic.

- I plan. I storyboard. I pre-visualize my concepts and always have an idea of where I want to take an image.  However, I thrive on collaboration and enjoy a sense of spontaneity on the day of the shoot.

- I always have chocolate on set.

Who do I love to work with?

I love working with models who are expressive, bring a high level of energy, and enjoy being part of the creative process.

- Good communication, teamwork, and professionalism are vital.

- Makeup artists, hair stylists, and wardrobe professionals are vital to my work and I enjoy working with those who can help me bring my concepts to life and thrill me with a fresh perspective.
