Michael first developed an interest in photography when he traveled to Trinidad and Tobago back in 2002, taking with him a 2MP Olympus digital camera. He explored and was inspired by these beautiful islands to travel more and discover new images to capture in his own unique style.
On his return he invested in a digital SLR camera and combined his new toy with his first passion: music and quickly built a portfolio covering live events and producing band photography. He has since covered the largest Reggae festival in Europe, Summerjam in Germany. As well as covering Soul greats such as Maze, Leroy Hutson, Incognito and Maceo Parker, Michael has captured Rap groups such as The Roots, Wu Tang Clan, Blackstar, EPMD and often works with many UK artists including Rose Windross, Klashnekoff, Maverick Sabre, Aruba Red, Wancee, Natty and others.
His next aims were documentary photography and film making and with these Michael took himself to the Slums of Nairobi in 2010 and during his two months in beautiful Kenya, he realised that combining the discovery of oneself and the world with documentary photography provides a poignant insight into social issues, individuals lives and situations.
Traveling soon became Michael’s second biggest passion in life, having many opportunities to visit friends in other countries, Michael see’s the earth as every-bodies home and therefore has a fearless attitude when it comes to exploration and adventure. With this he has taken many images capturing the essence of life in that particular space and time, representing the culture and mother earth respectively.
Michael has a vast array of clients including many in the media sector and is available to hire for a variety of commissions including Unit/Film Stills, Live Event and Concert Coverage, Documentary, Photoshoots and other work, please get in touch with any enquiry you may have, thanks for stopping by.
