Thank you for your interest in Michael Taylor’s project

A Story to Tell

About the Project

Back in early March, I was in the beginning stages of an Artist Project in which I was asking for your help.  Needless to say, the project has been on hold the last few months while we – and the rest of the world – stayed close to home.

Now, as we all start to come back to life, I’m ready once again to get started…and,
we’ve extended the deadline to June 10, 2020.

 

I’m looking for people who are interesting, colorful, unique, or simply just have a great story to tell that adds to the charm of our town. Artists, craftsmen, collectors, museum or gallery curators – anyone with a specific passion for what they do!

Do you know someone who might fit the bill? If so, I’d love to know about them.  All I need from you is their name, phone number, email address, and a few sentences about why you feel they’d be perfect for this project.  There is no limit to how many people you can nominate.

  


I can’t wait to share the finished project with you!

Deadline for submissions is June 10th

Only submissions submitted via the web app will be considered.

Meet the Artist

Michael Taylor, M.Photog., Hon.M.Photog. Cr., API, F-ASP,  owned a successful portrait studio in Pasadena for twenty years and has served as a past president of the Professional Photographers of America. He has been a resident of Williamsburg for 12 years. Here, he works as co-owner and photographer at Sigmon Taylor.
His distinguished portfolio includes portraiture of Gerald Ford, Marlo Thomas, Carol Channing, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis. Locally, he does extensive work for Riverside Health System, Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center, and many more.

“When I had a studio in Pasadena I created an exhibition called People of Passion funded by Eastman Kodak. It featured citizens of Pasadena who where colorful, unique and passionate about Pasadena. They added much flavor to the richness of the city.

In like manner, I want to create a similar exhibition for Williamsburg, VA. Southern Living just named Williamsburg “The South’s Best Small Town, 2020.”  THAT is exactly right. Fascinating people make up this town and that is who I want to feature in this project.

However, I need your help. I’m looking for people who are interesting, colorful, unique or simply have a story to tell. They might be an artist, craftsman, teacher, architect, college professor or some other person who has a passion for life in this area – even better if they have visually interesting surroundings in which I can create their portrait.

I really appreciate your help. I am so thankful for your support and knowledge of our beautiful town.”

We know, we know … 2020 … Dumpster fire of a year.⁠

BUT, we’re doing something REALLY EXCITING to flip the script so we can ALL be reminded of the silver linings this year has given us.⁠

Quarantine has enabled us to rediscover our families in new and meaningful ways. In fact, we believe that when we look back, this time spent together as a family will be among our most cherished memories.⁠

We want to hear the stories of how this year has helped YOUR family grow stronger, closer, and happier! We want to know what you are thankful for because of Quarantine.⁠

We believe that this year, more than ever, is the right time to celebrate your family with a gorgeous wall portrait hanging in your home ... to remind you of the year in which you rediscovered each other. ⁠

So…⁠

We’re going to celebrate THREE families and spoil them silly with a $900 Portrait Experience! Check out the link in our bio to get all the details!!⁠

*** BUT, DON’T WAIT because the deadline is THIS SUNDAY OCTOBER 4 AT MIDNIGHT! ***⁠

We can’t wait to read all of your lovely stories and be reminded of the good in the world!! Good Luck!! ⁠

❤️❤️❤️⁠

The end of summer is so bittersweet. Long shadows and golden light make portraits at this time of year so special. This family was new to our studio last year and one of our very favorites to work with. These little guys were SO CUTE and moms of boys are just the best. She killed it with the outfits and this portrait hangs in their bedroom as a gorgeous art piece. I just love the youngest one stretching to hold dad's hand...they outgrow that phase pretty quickly, but it lasts forever in a portrait.⁠

**Swipe to see the whole portrait!**⁠

The end of summer is so bittersweet. Long shadows and golden light make portraits at this time of year so special. You can feel hints of fall right around the corner, but the warmth of the sun tells us we still have a little time before it's here. We absolutely love shooting at this time of year!⁠

Summer's turning into fall already - so hard to believe. I feel like this year has rushed by and stood still all at the same time. Do you feel that way, too? We're booking location sessions now for the most beautiful time of year, and we want to make sure we get everyone taken care of early...just in case CoVid causes chaos again with flu season! Be sure to reach out and we can get you on our books!⁠
