Photographer Michael Halsband

Michael Halsband is one of the truly great photographers and the man who took the Ned’s photo for this site. Michael has the capacity to put his subject at peace with the unnerving experience of sitting in front of his huge camera.

Over the years Michael has been the photographer touring many of the greatest rock’n’roll bands. He has works as a very high profile portrait photographer from his studio near Time Square. The walls of his studio are like a gallery of figures from popular culture. There is a calm serenity about his studio which is such a contrast from the bustle of New York outside. Here he explains how yoga has become part of his life – perhaps this is tied in with his yogic calm – if you have about 6 mins enjoy this film.
