Black Lives Matter

On July 3, 2020 I attended by first protest for Black Lives Matter. I would not consider myself a photo journalist but my friend Candice Callins asked me to come and I wanted to be a part of something that was historical - as this issue is one of the biggest movements of 2020 - if not in my lifetime. There were some anti-protesters, naturally, who just drive by several times waving American flags and yelling derogatory slang at the crowd but overall it was amazing to see how the majority of people be supportive. It was amazing to see so many white and latino people among the crowd as well.

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

El Cortez Hotel and Casino

At the beginning of the year [2020] I took up photography as a hobby - since I travel so much for work. In January I took a trip to Vegas and took some pictures while I was there. Well the El Cortez Hotel and Casino used one of my pictures for their Instagram page to promote this 3-day weekend [President's Weekend.] What a nice and lovely surprise!

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!

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!
