Bio and Press

Fuji X-T1, Profoto and Michelle Turner

Upon hiring Michelle Turner, two rather delightful things are soon to happen:  You’ll certainly come away with an album full of emotionally acute images — but it’s going to be delivered in a style that’s also funky and fashionable.  For Michelle, those aren’t contradictory means to an end, it’s simply the essence of her technique.  Peek inside her studio, or follow her to the wedding destinations she shoots all over the world, and you’ll find her crafting colorful, even occasionally grungy portraiture that is uniquely Michelle’s.  But it’s how she manages to imbue both her shots and your experience with a fun, laidback vibe that will have you connecting with her in an entirely familiar, friendly way.

Michelle is both a coveted national speaker and author and has published two books about fashionable wedding photography.  She is an alumna of Georgetown University and worked on her Master’s at Dartmouth.  She currently resides in Santa Barbara (Los Olivos), CA and Bridgton, Maine and spends most of the winter photographing weddings in Mexico, Central America and Europe.

Would you like to learn from Michelle?  She currently teaches two workshops on lighting at Click & Company (where she is the Director of Click Photo School).  These workshops are online and are open to everyone (regardless of gender and parental status).  :) If you’d like to learn about On Camera Flash and Continuous Light, head here.   If you’d like to learn about Off Camera Flash, head here.  She speaks at several conferences throughout the year, including Click Away, Firefly, Inspire, and the WPPI trade show floor.
