About Me

American Expat from Los Angeles now in Sweden as of September 2021!

As an experienced fine art and erotic photographer for two decades, my current focus of work is on my dark/horror fine art series HUSK that utilizes custom masks that I sculpt by hand.

My past work has been collected into 7 solo art and photo books over the last 20 years as well Taschen's THE NEW EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY volumes 1 and 2.

While he is known for portraits and dark photography he is extremely versatile in his ability to capture different moods. We have shot many different looks together from pinup to horror. I highly recommend working with him!" Read less

His imagery takes you to another realm, as if you are traveling to unseen dimensions. Chad Michael was both professional and courteous, while being funny and a pleasure to work with." Read less
