"To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
~ Henry Cartier-Bresson
Michael Angelo combines his background as a writer with his passion for photography to tell your stories through the timeless practice of photojournalistic photography: the Bressonian "art of the found". Employing a mixture of Renaissance-era lighting techniques with vintage film lenses, hand-painted backdrops, and a discerning eye for posing and expressions, Michael Angelo's portraits are timeless, artistic, and truly serve to capture the essence of the subject.
Having worked at several publications (including The Monitor, Pulse Magazine, World News & Report, The Pan-American, and The Panorama), Michael Angelo is well-accustomed to difficult shooting conditions and tight deadlines. Rain, shine, snow, or heat, his team is always ready to capture a fleeting moment.
The Photos by Michael Angelo team has covered weddings all over the United States, as well as a few in Mexico and one engagement in Germany, and hope to expand their growing portfolio of destination weddings in the coming years.
Michael Angelo was also a semi-finalist on Top Photographer with Nigel Barker, is currently the city of McAllen's chief photography instructor, and has his first gallery exhibition coming up in November 2021. He is also currently being considered for an artist-staffed mission to the moon in 2023.
That's Michael Angelo in a nutshell.
