About Me

Michael Barone is an internationally acclaimed professional photographer for over 35 years. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from the University of Delaware he worked for Playboy Inc and which helped him develop his technique and relaxed style.  Barone approaches each photograph as an expression of artistic excellence.  He believes that the best images come from understanding the subject and the particular needs of each client. Barone uses his artistic training and the tools of modern photography to create work that meets his exacting artistic standards. Over his career Barone has photographed the human form in all its beauty and sensuality, showing a depth of emotion that brings the subject to life. His work has been shown internationally and has won numerous awards and has also published two books of his work. He is now a resident of the Lehigh Valley and besides fine art photography, Michael specializes in commercial portraits and product photography.
