Michael Lau has been a professional photographer since 1998 shooting predominately fashion and portraiture.
His work has featured in many publications including – British Vogue, GQ, Hello! Magazine, The Sun, Daily Mirror, Reveal, Metro. His client list is equally as prestigious and includes Diesel, Spoylt Lingerie, Boots, Thomas Cook, and many more.
Michael has always been first and foremost a professional photographer and the Academy came about as a challenge from some of his colleagues back in 2011 after they observed him working with schoolkids. “You should teach, Michael…”.
Within a year Michael had seen 500 photography students through his studio doors. His passion for photography is infectious as is his enthusiastic and very approachable style. Michael never does anything by halves so he also teaches an elective at Nottingham Trent University on the fashion degree course.
Since then the Academy continues to go from strength to strength.
