Bio Welcome to Michael Pool Photography! I'm Michael Pool. I bought my first "real" camera after returning from an extended tour in Desert Storm in 1991 as a young Marine. I've been taking pictures ever since, giving me over 25 years of photography experience. I have an eye for pretty things. Whether it's skin care, hair, fashion or portraiture, I've gotcha covered. With an astute attention to detail and masterful lighting techniques, I have traveled the globe shooting international advertising campaigns, editorials, education and everything in between. I love my images to emote an element of mystery and magic. However, I also pride myself in giving my clients the images THEY need. I find great artistry in being able to turn art directors' visions into reality. When I'm not taking pictures you can find me hanging with my awesome son all over the City of Angels and elsewhere. Besides spending time with my son, I love dogs, hiking, soccer, good friends and great food. Thanks for visiting my site, let's make some beautiful pictures.
