Early in his beginnings as a photographer, Michael Church was not very interested in photographing people at all. Pursuing a Visual Arts degree in academia, surreal and abstract imagery was his focus of choice. It wasn’t until students from the Drama and Dance departments who kept asking for aid with audition photos that the opportunity to redirect his concentration arose. Educated formally in Fine Art black and white printing, everything else Michael knows about photography is self-taught. Two decades later, he has gravitated to specializing in beauty and editorial portrait photography.
Throughout his career, Michael has photographed jobs for numerous catalogs, magazine editorials and commercial websites. He creates images that seem minimal in appearance yet are dynamic and colorfully seductive. The work on this site is the fashionable facade of the Michael Church Photography brand.
