|Driving a mile past the bend of the main Boulder Route, after the pavement ends, is the log cabin where Michel grew up. Milk, eggs and butter came from the O'Shenko ranch just down the valley, meat came from their own herd of Herefords, and vegetables came from the garden. Every month the family would pile into the Suburban and drive down to the ranch supply stores in Billings, Montana. What seemed like a journey across the world at the time was the beginning of a lifelong thirst for travel. From the end of that dirt road to his office in New York City, Michel has always enjoyed new places and made fast friends.|
The good fortune of his early career afforded the opportunity to travel the globe assisting magazines and companies with the common goal of photographing the people that define our time: from China’s leading industrialists in Shanghai to Nobel laureate economists in Paris to former President George W. Bush in Washington DC. Repeatedly, corporate clients including Nike, Intel, Pfizer, Lonza Biologics, Merck and Wal Mart have trusted Michel to connect their brands to customers through images with insight and humanity. His editorial work has appeared in The Huffington Post, The New York Times, People Magazine and The Times (UK).
Michel is the first to tell you, photography can be so much greater than just the sum of it's parts. "It's magic when everything comes together. However, the tangible results my clients demand are not the result of magic but sheer force of will. Through solid concepts and creative collaboration everything is possible. Through experience and adaptability, what is possible becomes repeatable and that's what my clients have come to expect. Repeatable results, on time, every time."
