Born in Casablanca, Morocco, Michel was raised in Spain and the South of France, and has since been living and working in Paris, New York and Los Angeles.
As a former assistant, Michel worked with several portrait, fashion and advertising photographers on many high-end productions. Among them Annie Leibovitz - as her first assistant, receiving credit on her book Women. This project served as a great source of human and cultural adventure, pushing Michel to excel in lighting; and dealing with challenging productions.
Michel has mastered lighting, production, post-production and retouching skills giving him a great understanding of his clients' needs and expectations from concept to the finished project. Michel is also incredibly personable and puts his subjects at ease in front of the camera.
“My passion is to find in anybody or anything I photograph, a part of beauty, an emotion, a special moment; but most important is the shared human experience that photography brings to my life."
Based in the South West of France and Paris, Michel splits his time between commercial assignments and personal projects.
