Michael Muller is best known for being a celebrity and advertising photographer with an esteemed range of actors, musicians, artists, activists including Joaquin Phoenix, Robert Downey Jr., Shepard Fairey and Hugh Jackman to mention a few. Muller, like many other Portrait photography masters traveled around the world as a child.
” I don’t change my attitude because someone is famous. I respect their talent, but I treat them as a real person. We all breathe the same air and we all have the same sun, so let’s work together and make a great iconic picture together.” Had he been appeasing his clients the images would not have the dramatic impact. Certainly the clients surrender themselves to Michael Muller’s craft and let him lead.
Michael shares another quality usually found in a master portrait photographer, which is compassion towards humanity and Michael teached photography to children suffering from serious illness, and working for the United Nations and the Nothing but nets campaign to raise awareness and fund the fight against malaria. His portraits are high contrast punchy and modern, but yet subtle and authentic.
