“I’d been taking photos for pleasure for years but that first time I did it for money was an unnerving experience. I remember it well. I had the responsibility of getting it right, one time! Sweat poured out of me all day as I shot over and over again making sure I didn’t miss a thing It’s all different now though. I know what to look for and expect. I also now know the tricks to make things happen in the people I photograph.“
Michael completed a Diploma Of Photography by the end of that year and was successfully contracted to teach photography at no less than three TAFE’s in the Brisbane area, a contract that was to last seventeen years!
He has had installments in art galleries and work published in newspapers / magazines around the world. Michael has been a guest speaker at numerous other classes and workshops around the state.
