Michael is one of those irritatingly-talented, triple-threat actors. He sings, he dances and is a gifted actor too. When I saw him through the lens he really had that classic ‘old Hollywood’ look. He was really after a happy and fun-loving look, which you can see that we got in other shots, but I convinced him to let me have a little extra time to craft that 1940’s-style black-and-white movie star portrait. Even if he never gets that chance to use them, they are some of my favorite photos I’ve taken.
