Michael Weschler is a versatile commercial photographer and director, equally adept capturing moments, both iconic and intimate. Whether shooting portraits or directing commercials and short films, his cinematic sensibility and eye for detail has lead to unforgettable imagery, specializing in lifestyle, capturing people in spaces, portraying famous people as regular folks and making real people more heroic.
Michael had a camera in his hands at age three and soon after started shooting portraits of his friends, eventually shooting for the New York Times for over a decade, building a foundation in photojournalism. After first studying Architecture, using photography as a tool to draw better, he moved on to Fine Art Photography at Cal State University. His work has since graced more than thirty magazine covers and has been exhibited in art galleries and museums around the world.
Michael is a mentor to young photographers at NYC Salt, also donating his time and services to several charity groups, including cancer survivors and victims of abuse. Based in New York City, but always on the move, he travels frequently for shoots across the country and around the world, while also completing nine triathlons in his spare time.
Michael and his crew have also undertaken professionally certified training to produce safe and CDC-compliant projects during these difficult times.
