A strong sense of style and a passion to find what’s unique in every subject drive photographer Rebecca Michael.
Rebecca Michael is a Melbourne photographer with 17 years experience with the Herald Sun. In that time she’s photographed prominent chefs, politicians, actors and royalty. She’s used her lens to reveal the big stories behind ordinary people, capturing the elation, heartbreak and triumph of everyday life, in work that has seen her nominated for News Corp’s Photographer of the Year award.
Food photography is a specialty, and Rebecca is adept at capturing the texture, tones and sensual pleasure of food in all its variations. Her work has appeared regularly on covers of Taste and Weekend, and she has photographed chefs from Heston Blumenthal to Nobu Matsuhisa.
She’s covered major events such as the Melbourne Cup Carnival, AFL Grand Final, Grand Prix and Melbourne Fashion Week, and is an accredited photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers.
As a portrait photographer she has refined her skills covering news subjects ranging from Julia Gillard to Quentin Tarantino, while her private portrait business of eight years has seen her in high demand to capture professionals and families. “Being a mum myself, I appreciate how quickly children grow and how precious each moment is. I believe there is nothing more special than capturing the beautiful memories of the most important people in your life for generations to enjoy.”
