Michael is a prolific photographer who's cinematic style is beautiful in light and texture. For most of his career he was a one man show but when he moved to LA his agent recommended he start using assistants. I was fortunate to receive a call from Michael to be his assistant. Little did I know at that time how impactful this experience would be. His use of light was so "outside the box" that it opened my mind to possibilities I could only dream of. We built a close bond over the years. While he is still shooting he also pursued his love of acting. Every time we get together I make sure to have my camera with me.
