Michelle Hood has been creating powerful, intimate images for close to 20 years. Her signature style is reflected in both her eye for lighting and the emotion she draws from her subjects. "I am interested in authenticity. It is a universal connector - the more personal the subject, the more engaging the photograph."

She began her career in New York City working with mentor & Pulitzer-prize winning Eddie Adams and legendary music photographer Mick Rock, among others. Her own photographs exhibit a visual range and an attention to detail that has led to extensive work in advertising, editorial and commissioned portraiture across the U.S.

She has photographed David Byrne, Steve Buscemi, Barry Sonnenfeld, Kevin Connolly, Liev Schreiber, Geoffrey Zakarian, Fran Drescher, Angela Kinsey, Carrie Fisher, Bob Barker, Deepak Chopra, and more
