Photos for Auckland's Top Theatre Companies

Michael has a rare gift with shooting live theatre. A mixture of technical skill, anticipation and intelligence combine to produce photographs that capture the emotion, action and staging of the play. Backing this is his sensitive use of Photoshop and several other proprietry programs that enable him to adjust the photo to appear as close to the human theatre perception as possible.
None of these photos are 'staged' they are all production shots taken on the fly at the final dress rehearsal.
