A event held on 11/18/2011 at LaVilla Sportsman Club in Jacksonville Florida.

I attended as the photographer for two of the tattoo artists - Buck and Pretti who held the first tattoo extravaganza in a night club - supposedly ever.

We had a lot of fun - I made the images a bit contrasty and saturated, softened female skins and not so much on the guys. They are basically posted in the order taken - Buck is towards the back of the gallery, Tiffany is through out - she is such a ham!

If you were there - thank you for the fun - I felt accepted and was treated as one of the crew even though I didn't have any ink - You folks are all great!

Anyway the images are up for all to see, but get them soon because i do not know how long I will leave them up past the new year - if you want a file or a print for sure order before then! You will download them in FB format - please tag me as the photographer if you post them -

Thanks again.

If you 'd like a private shoot for yourself or someone else please contact me - you can do it now - just look at the top of this web page for the contact tab.

If .... please read this .... if I shot you that night and you want to do a private session with me - as an individual or in a small group I will give you the session at 50% off of the usual price of $250. Images and prints would be additional - if a friend is recommended by you - I will give them 25% off.

I specialize in Fashion, Beauty, Glamour and Portrature work for individuals and couples. Talk to me about a holiday shoot - that special present, whatever. Take some time and browse around the site - have some fun with it!

If you have a crazy idea - let me know about it - call me to discuss - or email me - I'm on facebook too if you must. Michael Straley

I am looking for a couple of people with access to masks, costumes and other similar, stage-quality stuff - wardrobe and props - if so I will shoot at no charge - are you interested?

There is a bunch of info on this site about how to prepare for a shoot, what to bring with you and what to expect - check it out - it is good to know no matter who you work with.

Here is more about me, motivation, and what thrills me - thanks for visiting!
