[this site has not contained new work from me in quite a while as I post at the links above, and find DA's interface to pokey at times. I have maintained this page for about 4 years as several of my friends and models have or have had pages on here)
My name is Mike Wood and I am a freelance photographer working in London in South Western Ontario, Canada. I have been doing photography seriously for a few years now and am looking to make it a full time profession as opposed to an occasional side line. I am always looking for aspiring models to work with on personal creative projects, and those who are interested in gaining some experience with a highly motivated photographer.
While I am quite versatile, I concentrate on doing some portrait work, and primarily fashion and artistic nudes.
If you are a model in the London or SW Ontario area and would like to do some TFP or TFCD work to build your portfolio, I do have some limited time for this and we could work something out. So get in touch.
Model photography is only one aspect of what I shoot, but it is one that I enjoy. Being able to portray those who pose for me in a 'real' way and have the photos stand for themselves is the outcome I like to have. As a result, while I shoot 100% digital, I started with film and tend to think that way. I also prefer natural light and working outdoors over the constraints of a studio. Black and white is my medium of choice - though this is always negotiable. I have minimalist gear, and no studio.
I am quite upbeat, positive, and I make everyone at ease in my shoots. Having said that, I will work as hard as possible to get the very best shots every time. My best photo shoots to date have been the ones where the model and myself collaborate, share ideas, and work as a team. I can easily direct new models in a shoot, but I am always open to suggestions and interpretations as well.
I am interested in networking with photographers, models, potential clients, and those who like my work or photography in general.
