Con Magazines

So right after I got published on the cover of Dappy Magazine I got word that one of my sponsored photos I took with Krysta Ortiz [aka Krystale Noir] and sponsored by Kilo Brava lingerie made it on the cover of Con Magazine - another fashion magazine. This is two magazines in ONE WEEK! Not too bad for someone who just took up photography a little over a year ago!

Joshua Tree, California
Travels with Michael

Joshua Tree, California

I went to Joshua Tree with my friend Krystale Noir to do a boudoir photoshoot out in the desert. But while out there for work, I HAD to take a day to myself to see the area. Even though I am from Southern California, I had never seen Joshua Tree or the surrounding area [including the National Park.]. Since I do photography, I love going to national parks and taking photos/videos. https://youtu.be/4IMC_j6jk2M The national park service provides an awesome year pass that you can buy for $80. It is good for any park for an entire year - and it isn't per person, it's for each car...so it works for the whole family. Each national park can range in price from $20 to $35 per car - so this pass is truly a great deal, especially if you plan on visiting more than one [1] park in a yea...

Voyage LA

Took up a new career during the pandemic - photography! And I am excited that Voyage LA did an interview on me to help promote my newest venture. I am humbled, to say the least, and I am so grateful to my manager Matt Chassin and my friend [and first model I shot with] Candice Callins for recommending me for this article. I would appreciate your support in reading this article - leave a comment and let me know what you think! http://voyagela.com/interview/conversations-michael-coulombe/

Valentine’s Day 2021

Being stuck in the middle of a pandemic as kept me creatively stifled. Realizing that Valentine's Day was coming up - and I wanted to do a fun photoshoot to make photos to post for the holiday. So....I went to Michael's and bought a few Valentine's Day crafts and decided to make a diorama for the holiday. I took photos and did a fun BTS video. Check out the photos: Here is the BTS video: https://youtu.be/f1Og0aNaf4g https://www.tiktok.com/@pics.by.michael/video/6928434435738144005?lang=en&is_copy_url=0&is_from_webapp=v1&sender_device=pc&sender_web_id=6896014234942408197 https://www.instagram.com/p/CLPYIvsAtKI/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
Zion National Park

Zion National Park

One of the best things about working in the film industry is that there are times when I get to travel for a project. Besides filming - and photography - traveling is one of my most favorite things to do! So much so that I created a whole new instagram account just for my travel photography! Travels with Michael C For this job I was taken to a small town at the Utah/Arizona border called Kanab, Utah. I did not know this at the time, but this town is known as the Little Hollywood of Utah because they have shot many, many films there, especially a lot of the western films from the early days of film! And I am not going to lie, the landscape out in that area is truly stunning. It is, after all, only 30 minutes away from Zion National Park. Actually, the awesome thing about Kanab is ...

I’m Not Perfect – BTS

Did an awesome photo shoot with my homegirl Candice Callins yesterday. This is our third photoshoot so far, starting with the one we did earlier this year when I first bought my camera. Candice was the FIRST person I photographed. I wanted to learn how to use my camera and she allowed me to do a photoshoot. I was so nervous - but was also excited. This was something new to me. And I think the photos turned out great. We did a fitness shoot....and even though I LOVE the photos, I look back on them now and see how much I have improved. Quarantining during the pandemic has kept us all mostly isolated. So to break the monotony I took photos. I could walk around my neighborhood and take photos - so it was a great way to practice and hone my skills! Check out the BTS video below as wel...

Yacht in Los Angeles Harbor

During these unprecedented times, it is definitely hard to stay focused and sane. The weather is getting warmer - much warmer! - and it's hard to stay indoors. Our natural reaction then would be to flock to such places as the beach...or a park...or a pool...BUT then we risk of contracting the Corona virus OR run the risk of infecting others. Also, many folks, like myself, are not working that much and our stimulus has run out. So it is no wonder that folks are restless, scared, or just numb now to everything. I know that I am. Recently I have felt more isolated and alone. I do visit people but not as often as I used to - and definitely very socially distanced. I miss working, especially when my bills are due! And I miss traveling! Like...a lot! So when my friend texted me the ot...

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 https://www.tiktok.com/@pics.by.michael/video/6882467996745452805?_d=secCgsIARCbDRgBIAIoARI%2BCjyKvrZ5pXmfNZK6hsn0XXIeDvbALuWF381PNvcLqGaGYnaVwQ7nB5HPlJ1RGQOFfrDlzDDDRQnebQnhlP8aAA%3D%3D&language=en&sec_uid=MS4wLjABAAAAbgMbMK5X3LJG8G7hLwz6Lq4fxf86YoMQ6x0G8PucoFe1TogQYM2qvuv9KFAD1ACA&sec_u...

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. Regardless of what people think - there is definitely a shift in the view of Black Americans in this country...and as we head into Independence day tomorrow here in the Unites States it will be gr...
