Michael Krauss thrives on creative challenge - as a cinematographer, broadcast designer and photographer, he finds inspiration from urban decay to scenic landscapes, from live action to motion graphics and typography. His style is comparable to none - exceeding a client's expectation and discovering new insight at all turns.
With a degree in graphic design, Michael headed off on his own to Vancouver where he owned and operated a corporate/industrial photography studio. After five years of enjoying much success, Michael returned to his home in Montréal to further his education, and put his design and photographic skills to use in the communications and entertainment industry. This lead to the next phase in his journey, a prestigious position as Broadcast Designer, Department Head for CTV News in Toronto.
As most creative beings discover, constant challenge is a necessity. Michael's talent and respected work ethic propelled him towards various opportunities with cutting edge companies where he landed positions such as, Art Director, Senior Designer, Producer and Creative Consultant.
Michael now works for himself, utilizing his diverse work experience, and has snagged a few Promax awards along the way. Combining design, photography and motion make for exceptionally creative and provocative work.
