Michael Lawrence

Michael Lawrence is a director and photographer based in Los Angeles, working worldwide.
His work stems from a diversity of traveled interests, inspirations, and life experiences, yet always is motivated by a quest for truth and a deeper understanding of the human perspective. In both his previous life as a photojournalist in Indonesia, and in his current explorations with film, Michael’s innate desire is to seek out the light in darkness, and to give a voice to stories lesser known. He makes images that are remarkably expressive and engage emotionally with both their subjects and audience alike.
In advertising Lawrence has directed and photographed campaigns for some of the worlds biggest brands with some of the worlds best agencies.
Michael’s films have garnered acclaim with a film shortlist at Cannes, New Director of the Year nomination at Shots, and multiple awards at the Bessies. His images have been featured in The Atlantic, The NYTimes Magazine, Creativity, Communication Arts, Adweek, Fader, VICE, Pitchfork, and Indie Magazine.
