The One and Only Photographer Mike Magee

We got to do a special interview with our low-key Bostonian photographer, the great Mike Magee. The brand loves collaborating with Mike due to his ability to capture our brand's mission and bring it to life spectacularly with every picture. Mike is always available for bookings when in your area. His information will be right under the interview! 

 Q:
Can you describe that "moment" when you knew that photography was something you just had to do?
A:
I would have to say the first time I put a DSLR in my hands 5 years ago. It was a Canon 6D with this beautiful 50mm prime lens and when I looked through  the viewfinder I felt inside me that this was something that I love.
Q:
What does photography mean to you?
A:
Photography means absolutely everything to me. It is man's' immortality. Capturing moments is one of the greatest blessings to me we have received. Photos live on through time. I love to know that even after I am gone my photos could still be seen thousands of years from now and those people will know that that moment genuinely existed.
Q:
What is your favorite photograph that you have ever taken? 
A:
My favorite photograph I have taken would have to be a portrait of this girl Daisy. She just simply amazed me and still does. She is so natural in front of the lens and explorative with her posing. Something about her facial expression and the light motion in her hair makes this my favorite photo at this time.
Q:
What is your goal for your photography career?
A:
Honestly, my goal is to not just make money but see my work hanging somewhere. I want my photographs in people's' homes or on display at galleries. If I can make that happen I will be a happy man.
Q:
If you could take your art in any direction without fear of failure or rejection, where would it lead. What new thing would you try?
A:
I think it would lead me to more conceptual art. I would definitely have more non traditional angles and framing. As far as something new I would try? I honestly cant say! I feel that I do what is in my heart so wherever it takes me is where I will go.
Q:
What does Never Seek Approval mean to you?
A:
To me never seek approval means just that. If you have an idea or a dream do speak to people about it. Remove the possibility of others talking you out of what you want. There is a reason why we have gut instinct and to allow anyone or anything to conflict with that is going to get you nowhere. Be you because one day you won't be here.
