Michael Hurcomb, named in Canada’s Top 20 music photographers – (NXNE Festival), has forged his way into the industry by fusing his passion and first hand knowledge of the underbelly of rock ‘n roll with his life long love of the still photograph. Only this marriage of influences could teach the artistry of taking the multi-sensory experience of a stadium concert and capturing it’s very essence in only two dimensions.

Whether shooting concerts, portraits, fashion or commercial work Michael keeps his lens focused not only on framing moments but stealthily edging between these moments, flexing his impeccable sense of timing and his eye for a most unusual beauty.

Michael has successfully incorporated film into his portfolio, shooting, directing and producing segments for Blackberry, Gibson Guitars, Corbis Motion & Trent University, music videos for Martin Sexton, Before The Curtain, & Adam Gontier, a reality TV series about Bollywood dancers and three seasons of the web based music show “Bandwagon”.
