About Michael Weintrob

from his ability to consistently produce intimate photographs under a variety of conditions. Whether it is a candid portrait, a live performance, or a cultural event, Michael aims to capture both spontaneity and clarity in his subjects.

"I like to bring out the travelity of the people in my photographs, " Michael explains. "For example when I shoot musicians in the studio I try to create a relaxed vibe and let people be who they are. I move really quickly and try to improvise with my camera."

The skill and ease of Michael's technique has resulted in a growing reputation both in and outside the music industry. Born in Birmingham, Alabama and currently residing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Michael's images have appeared in publications such as Rolling Stone, Newsweek People, Spin, Mojo, Billboard, Relix, Jazz Times and Downbeat. Michael has photographed album images for renowned artists including Bootsy Collins, Burning Spear, Taj Mahal, Gov't Mule, Charlie Hunter and many others.

Michael's work - which is well-known in musical circles - is now expanding into new avenues. Along with working for corporate clients (Sony, Blue Note, EMI, Carefusion, Loews Hotels), Michael has donated his time and effort to raising money for the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foumdation and his photography was auctioned off by Sothebys to help provide musical instruments to children affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Michael continues to work as the principal photographer for several music festivals (he is Staff Photographer for the 2011 Barcelona International Jazz Festival) and as a house photographer (Feinsteins at the Loews Regency Hotel).

Clients include:

Loews Hotels, Feinsteins, The Barcelona International Jazz Festival, Cloud 9 Adventures, Jamcruise, Exordium Group, Carefusion, Alligator Records, Universal Music Group, Sony Records, Raisin' Music, Downbeat Magazine, Jazztimes Magazine, People Magazine, Relix Magazine, Rollingstone Magazine, Guitar Player Magazine, Drummer Magazine UK, Rhythm Magazine UK, Imagicorps
