Michael Poles Photography - West Hollywood, California - Call: 323-874-8973


As a commercial photographer my repertoire includes numerous categories and I constantly strive for excellence in all that I do.

Throughout the years, I have photographed numerous events in and for the City of West Hollywood and for Church Boutique, a unique store that features creations by artists and designers from all over the globe and which is frequented by well-known celebrities.

When working with models and actors I allow time for them to become comfortable in the studio or on location and in that way we create images that not only look great, but enable agents and casting directors to actually recognize them from their pictures when auditioning.

When shooting events, I enjoy fading into the background and capturing candid shots while stealing moments ... like a "thief." Posed and group photos are always a must as well.

I am very pleased to announce that my photos of Lucky Strike Lanes at L.A. Live are featured on the cover and inside the September 2010 issue of International Bowling Industry Magazine, which can be seen here:

I believe my body of work speaks well for itself and I hope you will enjoy my photographs and retain my services for your photography.


When your image really matters for success,  insist on quality photographs by Michael Poles!
