There is no one particular time. This business is always a process of being strategic and sharp.

Michael, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Sitting on a mountain under the stars. Looking up and realising how not in control I am. Photographing the milky way galaxy makes you feel small but inspires huge dreams.

All times I am creative with my work. My creative style is what identifies me and causes others to recognise my work
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?*
Be true to yourself. Learn your craft and explore how your craft allows you to communicate to the world. This is art, and there is no one way to do this.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I'm open to the idea and would have to decide when presented with the opportunity if it is one that is right for me. So short answer is "yes".
Now for the best part Michael! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
