BLM Photo Shoot

We are in the middle of the most important movement of our country - probably our lifetime. On this Independence Day, we need to ensure that all people are free from hate and oppression. Did a photo shoot for Black Lives Matter with model Candice Callins this weekend in Hollywood, California. I also attended my first Black Lives Matter protest yesterday in Tujunga, California. It was amazing to be there with everyone. Nobody's free until we're all freeFannie Lou Hamer

One of my goals for 2020 was to get better at my photography.  I have done 3 photo shoots so far this year and I already have several more in the works; so I thought it best to create a portfolio page for my photography [and subsequently each photo shoot as a sub page under photography - so please check those out.] Check out my portfolio here: Michael Coulombe Portfolio

Since I travel so much for pleasure and for work, I decided that for 2020 I wanted to invest in a camera. I am not looking to become a professional photographer - it is definitely just a hobby. My goal is just to take better pictures when I travel. To help gather feedback I created both an Instagram and Pinterest page. Please follow and help me become a better photographer!

My Vlog, My Journey, My Life

So I have been going through a funk for a bit as things in my life are changing. Vlogging seems to be a thing these days - and has for a while. I am not much of a vlogger. I barely blog as well since I talk a lot about my life on my podcast.  But just so I can share my experiences with following my dreams - both the successes and the failures - I have decided to create a vlog as a creative outlet for me. Please follow me on my journey! https://youtu.be/8h5FjDf_utQ

Thank you to my nephew Chris Minnick who surprised me today with a drawing. He is self taught and has been practicing - so he thought he would draw a picture of me as he saw me - a Hollywood producer. I love this picture and I will keep it up on my website. It inspires me to keep working for what I love and for what I believe in. Thank you Chris - your uncle is proud of you!

Wayfarers Chapel

Today, in celebration of Earth Day, the Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verdes had their second annual art show and poetry reading called 'Art by the Sea with Poetic Expression'. Yours truly was a feature poet invited to read. I haven't been an invited poet in over 15 years (if not more.) Attending today felt like coming out of retirement - and I am grateful for my friend Georgia Washington for asking me to be a part of the event. The weather today was a wonderful 72 degrees with a slight breeze as we saw Catalina Island hiding out in the distant haze. The waves crashed towards as we stood up over the high cliff. It was an amazing inspiring day and I was grateful to be a part of the festivities today! Also after the reading today I have decided to move forward and being writing my second book. I...

When Hate Reigns (Inaugural Day)

Inaugural day.The crowd gathers;people clamoras Hate steps up to the podium. He is calm, collect.The weather is cool, brisk.The people are excited and alive from the commemoration. Hate is poised over the calamity of noiseas onlookers stare up at Him in awe.Tall, almost elegant with His grand gestures.His voice thunders in everyone’s head. He speaks:“People! People! I am here today before youas a symbol of a new beginning that is about to take place.We are on the threshold of a new era,an era free from the destruction of obscenity;the infestation of affectivity.At the forefront of this populaceI shall begin the absolution to freedom." And Hate smiled.And the people cheeredfor they had a leader who was brave. But there was a dark cloud that loomed above - -fat and swollen wi...
