A little bit about me...

Hi, my name is Michael!

I am an Australian photographer, filmmaker and musician currently based in the city of Dresden, Germany.

Dresden is a beautiful and historic city just two hours south of Berlin, but luckily it's much less noisy and completely surrounded by nature. It has marvellous buildings, Vineyards, Forests, Mountains and the river Elbe that runs all the way up through Germany to Hamburg.

Why is an Australian living in the middle of Eastern Germany, you ask?

It's a long story... maybe I'll tell you one day.

I have been working as a freelancer for the last two decades making music videos, documentaries, animation and taking photos and working mostly with independent artists including Mogli, Gotye, Passenger, Len Faki, William Barton, Felix Rösch, Clemens Christian Pötzsch, Sven Helbig, Megan Washington and Deepchild.

I have also played the piano and composed music since I was a boy, and even released some electronic tracks over the last decade. I'm now also building my profile as an independent musician, producing across multiple genres under the name Mortlock.
