Aren’t chance meetings tremendous? We met Mikki at a Husky gig at the Standard at the end of 2011 when she took our photo – a quick chat and a business card swap and the alliance had been established.
Mikki started out as a street photographer, but now makes a crust taking photos of the most excellent gigs around town. Rather than just snapping away hoping for a good shot, she really thinks about the photos she’s taking.
“I’m intrigued by lights, and love crowd shots. I enjoy shooting bands who move around a lot or are quirky on stage. I need to walk away with the unconventional shot after every gig – not your regular close up of the singer in front of the mic with their mouth open and their eyes closed. I don’t want my photos to be repetitive. I need to be WOWed by my own photos.”
We were so WOWed by Mikki’s work that we asked for her help with our latest Vintage photo shoot which we released earlier in the week.
After taking a short sabbatical from photography, Mikki’s just started getting back into the swing of things and is looking to try out more fashion/product photography in the near future. Don’t just take our word for it though, check out her website.
