After many years of admiring beautiful photography I finally picked up a professional DSLR when my first born was due - just shy of 10 years ago! I found myself wanting to touch people with my work, in a fashion that captures an individuals essence, conveys a clear message and of course reflects my our collective vision and passion. Nature and our environment is the best canvas in my mind. I have always felt studio photography to be somewhat limiting so I’ve developed a portable, high powered lighting system to allow me the freedom to take my studio on the road. My specialities are portrait, fashion, boudoir, sports, commercial advertising, wedding and editorial photography. I am always pushing the envelope and anything is on the table really. I simply seek to bridge the gap between acceptable and exceptional art in the field. Creativity is my craft, my tool is the camera - my craft is judged on the impact my creativity brings to your bottom line.
About my work: It speaks passionately (and honestly) for itself. What more could I possibly add to that conversation?
“Michael is so easy to converse with and very open to discussing your ideas. Regardless of how many times you message back and forth, it’s all about evolving the idea to something you are really happy with! The most valuable thing about him as a photographer is he lets you be you as he understands this is where you will truly shine and this is how you capture the most honest and powerful photo! He is able to combine your vision with his professional knowledge to create the perfect piece, which I am sure you will be happy with! I am so grateful for all the photoshoots I have had with him and plan to do many more!
“Thank you so much Mike the photos are all great. I love how the photos looks very natural rather than posed, I am very impressed how you managed to capture the essence of my family! My children are very active I thought it would be difficult getting the quality of photos we really wanted however you did a wonderful job with my children! Mike has impeccable timing, vision and skill. He is able to distinguish a great shot from a od one, has a very inclusive way of shooting people that engages and disarms them and he provides an uncompromising standard of work. I cannot recommend Mike highly enough.
“Michael is more than just a guy with a camera. He is a coach, a designer and an editing marvel. I am extremely proud of the results that Michael has produced, not only in the work we have done together, but the constant standard that he puts into everything he does. Not only is his photography skills to the highest standard, he has a beautiful demeanour and is an absolute gem to have around. I highly recommend him for any vision your wanting to make a piece of art.
