Michael Giragosian Bio
Michael Giragosian is a fashion and commercial photographer based out of Orlando, FL. Michael first taught himself to draw portraits copying the images in fashion magazines. After receiving a camera as a gift from his father, he realized that his true passion was photography. As a wedding photographer he learned to photograph and master any lighting situation on-the-spot and saw this as a great learning experience, which would later prove useful to his fashion photography practice. He contributes his fashion editorials regularly to Lapalme Magazineand Orlando Magazine, and has had the opportunity to work with Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Cartier, among many other luxury brands, to create compelling magazine covers and editorials.
This workshop is made possible thanks to the generous support of ART BRIDGES.
