Hi there and thank you for coming to my website.
My name is Michael and I am a Brisbane-based photographer. This site is based around my more artistic and personal body of work. Photography is how I earn my living but more than that, it is also my passion. I am constantly looking for and thinking up new projects to undertake. I'm one of the lucky people who get to do what they love for work, and I like to work hard at it. All my images are available as prints, and I do commissions. If you are interested in getting a print or working with me get in touch via email.
Please select a category from the menu at the top of the page to begin browsing, or click one of the images below.
This set is from a portfolio shoot with a close friend of mine. We used a dilapidated house as our location, with its rich variety of textures and backgrounds including overgrown gardens and massive windows. The only thing, in my book, that beats running around some abandoned trove of lost memories and unexplored nooks is doing it with a beautiful model in tow.
I worked Dolly in February 2013 on an erotic glamour photoshoot. She had a vibrant, awesome energy and was super friendly. I really liked her 'suicide girls-esque' look and her ability to bring some real attitude to the shoot. My intention for the shoot was to produce vibrant, colourful, magazine-style images with a real alternative look. We shot in some old abandoned houses and warehouses that I knew about, and were even approached by the property owner in one of them. After explaining that we weren't vandalising anything and I hadn't asked permission because I didn't know whom to contact, they were happy to let us finish the shoot. The rugged locations really offset her petite features , and her numerous tattoos only added fuel to the fire. It was such a fun shoot and I got so many shots that I am happy with from it, as well as learning a lot after the shoot when reviewing the images.
This set is from a very old shoot, from way back in 2007. It was an art nude workshop, and I was just cutting my teeth on the whole genre. The model was introduced to us as Nina.
