Self portrait, 2017

I'VE BEEN TAKING PICTURES FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER.

AS A CHILD I ALWAYS HAD A CRAPPY LITTLE FILM CAMERA BY MY SIDE. I HAVE BOXES OF OLD PHOTOS THAT ARE TERRIBLE. ONCE DIGITAL CAMERAS WERE AVAILABLE I WAS THAT GUY WHO TOOK PICTURES OF EVERYONE AT THE PARTY AND POSTED THE PHOTOS THE DAY AFTER FOR YOU TO RELIVE YOUR MISTAKES.

IN 2006 THAT GOT ME INTO AN OLYMPIC SCANDAL.. IN TURKEY. FUNNY STORY.

A LOT OF MY EARLY WORK WAS CAPTURING EVENTS AND SPORTS. HOCKEY SPECIFICALLY. I GOT TO TRAVEL NORTH AMERICA, CAPTURE SOME OF MY CHILDHOOD HEROES AND PERFECTED PREDICTING THE PLAY TO CAPTURE THE PERFECT IMAGE.

IN 2015 I MOVED TO TORONTO, FELL IN LOVE WITH THE CITY AND BEGAN A NEW ADVENTURE STARTING @THRUMIKESLENS. IN 2016 NARCITY TORONTO CALLED ME ONE OF THE BEST 13 PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THE CITY.

NOW IN 2017 I AM FOCUSED ON COMMERCIAL PROJECTS, IN MY FREE TIME I AM FOCUSED ON WORK THAT EXPLORES MENTAL HEALTH, ADDICTION, VICES AND SUICIDE.

I AM DRAWN TO LEADING LINES, SYMMETRY & PATTERNS. I LOVE BURSTS OF BOLD COLOR.

I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW PEOPLE TO WORK WITH. I ALSO LOVE TAKING PICTURES OF PIGEONS.

LOVE ALWAYS,

MICHAEL
