Since the beginning of Michael's photographic experience, he's had a passion to create interesting images combining old photographic techniques with new technology. His ten years of experience in post-production has led him to create a unique color palate and style within his work. He exerts a strong technical understanding in both people and product photography, and is an efficient worker who's very punctual. He is a very hands-on individual who works well in a team to provide the greatest products.
I love my job because it allows others to see the world as I do. Everyone has a unique perspective on life and what it means to them. Photography allows me to better understand the perspectives of people, places, and things. The relationships to these people, places, and things are quintessential. Photography is the tool I use to express my gratitude, passion, hopes, and inspirations derived from the beauty of people and places I've been blessed to encounter. It grants the exploration of life and opportunity. Jobs don't get much better.
If I had to choose I would say portraiture, fashion, and fine art. Portraiture is about understanding who the person is being able to express dynamic between the subject and photographer. Fashion is the immediate visual expression of who someone is while fine art is the purest expression of a photographer and how they see the world.
In college I won a free lifetime website with Show It through a portfolio contest. I've been featured on Paiste symbols website. I've also been featured in the Hollywood Reporter in Los Angeles.
A fun fact about myself is that if I could spend a life-time on multiple crafts I would. Photography prevailed as my number one but I also play bass, love culinary arts, and practice mixed martial arts.
