Hi All, So I decided to take a booth at the upstart art fair, Photo Independent, across from Paris Photo this weekend, April 25th through the 27th. I will be showing a body of personal work, The Urban Landscapes Project, which are panoramic images that chronicle my travels around the world while on assignment. The images are colorful and graphic and received rave reviews at Photo LA in January. Please come to the Raleigh Studio Hollywood, 5300 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90038, I will be in Stage #8, Booth #603

Michael Grecco’s night is full of light.

He is a moonwalker, a somnambulist whose conscious and unconscious are not blinded by the brights of oncoming traffic or swallowed into shadows. He is enthralled by the radiance within the blackness, the rapture of color. Grecco’s “Urban Landscapes” are vivid panoramic photographs shot in mostly unidentifiable locations around the world. These places seem alien and exotic, showered in vibrant, lucent, sometimes iridescent almost radioactive colors, revealed in raking rays, squiggles, planes, and circles.

Through long exposure, selective focus, shallow depth of field, blurring and wide framing, he finds his way in the dark and leads us as he dances ecstatically through the color spectrum. In the studio and on location, he is a virtuoso of lighting technique. That skill has obviously sharpened his eye and instincts in locating these chromatic landscapes as he travels the city after dark. Further all of what happens is “in camera”, in his panoramic Hasselblad.

Sixty years ago, the legendary photographer Ernst Haas made this journey. Haas was interested in “transforming an object from what it is to what you want it to be.” Grecco wants to “to contextualize man and his/her place in their environments they create, in the artifices they live in, to go out every day with the intention of breaking visual rules, to create an evocative, cinematic image that inspires – in its format, composition and color” This is the visual music of the night.

Patrick Dempsey, a.k.a. “McDreamy”

February 11th, 2014

I am blessed. Really. I have been able to do the thing I love – image making – my entire adult life. I am not only blessed because I have been able to do it, but because as I have grown, it has been with clients that appreciate my work – and these relationships have existed for a very long time. Celebrity portrait of Patrick Dempsey for the cover of Forbes Life Magazine by Michael GreccoTake Forbes magazine for instance: in the past few months I have had the honor to shoot two very prominent covers for them. The first was of Patrick Dempsey, a.k.a. “McDreamy.” We spent a Saturday morning with him on his Malibu Estate. I often get involved in all the aspects of a shoot – even wardrobe – so Patrick wore clothes from my favorite menswear designer in the world – John Varvatos.  According to all the ladies that I have conferred with, I did good. Enjoy!20130803_Dempsey_Patrick_MGP_006320130803_Dempsey_Patrick_MGP_0031Patrick "McDreamy" Dempsey for Forbes Life by lifestyle photographer Michael Grecco

The second cover shoot was of the boy wunderkinds Evan Spiegel, 23, and Bobby Murphy, 25 of SnapChat. If you haven’t heard, Facebook offered them 3 billion dollars for their company (yes, billion) and they turned them down. This was just pure fun because they did not want to be shot in a static way, given that SnapChat is all about the 9-second photo that then disappears. So I had to bring a sense of fun and immediacy to the images. I love that!SnapChat co-founder Evan Spiegel on Forbes magazine cover by business photographer Michael GreccoThese shoots for me represent the most fun one can have as a photographer (except maybe, possibly, if you are shooting the SI Swimsuit Issue). Please reach out to me or my agents for your next photography project.Snapchat co-founders, Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy in Forbes Magazine 30 under 30 by commercial photographer Michael GreccoSnapchat co-founders, Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy in Forbes Magazine 30 under 30 by commercial photographer Michael Grecco
