About

About Michael Stephen

I was born and raised in Florida by a fantastic woman. All my good qualities come from her.

I am a creator, photographer, film maker, story teller, clothes designer, anything having to do with creating. I love the collaborative process of creative minds.

It's sometimes painful because we are passionate. It's sometimes messy because we are that small percentage who see things differently. I'm always pushing the creative process.

If you are up to it hire me, shoot with me, work with me. I guarantee it will be fabulous and won't be boring.

If you are one of those that must know what I've done in my past., what I can tell you about and not embarrass my mother is that I have been a youth director, a seller of big boats and fast cars, and stock broker during the Dot.com bubble.

I'm currently based out of South Beach.
