What advice do I have for photographers just starting out? Photography is both an art and a science. You must study, practice and master the fundamentals of exposure, lighting, posing & composition to the point where they become second nature. Your equipment & skill sets need to become a mere extension of your vision. Only then will you be able to instinctively and consistently create art during those fleeting moments of great photographic opportunity that you are presented with.
After thirty years as a professional photographer, Michael has clearly defined a niche that sets his work apart from so many other artists. This is all about classic portraiture that bridges his passion for fine art and portrait/wedding photography. You need to follow Michael's work on his website and Facebook page.
