Born and raised in Virginia, John Michael Fulton discovered what side of the camera he should be on (and developed a love of photography) after modeling for a friend's class project at the Savannah College of Art and Design. From there, his teachers & mentors helped him to find his personal photographic style that continues to develop to this day shooting for countless publications and commercial clients.

John Michael lives in Los Angeles, California with his girlfriend, makeup artist Amy Strozzi (and their cats Charles and Oliver Muffin) where they have an ongoing project called The Beauty Manifesto.
