Seven Pillars Photography - The Story of You

Seven Pillars Photography - The Story of You

If you are out there shooting, things will happen for you. If you're not out there, you'll only hear about it."- Jay Maisel

Michael Wright

I believe each of us has a God-given gift and it is our responsibility to share for the betterment of the world.  Photography is the gift given to me.  Though I am new to this world, my fascination, knowledge, and skill level improves with each photo.  The realm I have chosen to use this gift is the challenging environment of concert photography. I could not be in a better region of the world than Austin, Texas, the “Live Music Capital of the World.”

I am fascinated by the passion and dedication of these amazing people we call musicians. The service of their gift brings to us the ability to escape the trials and tribulations of the day. Their music heals, informs, and even guides us to a better day. This they do because they are called to do so. It is not an option.

But they are not alone. They are supported by a network of people who sometimes go unnoticed. Spouses, family, sound and lighting engineers, city officials, venue owners and the fans. All are important factors of a vibrant music environment. All have experiences of the life they live in connection to the music world. All have knowledge and wisdom. All are stories waiting to be told.

Seven Pillars Photography will be the instrument to tell their story via photographs and words. My books will preserve the environment. My magazine, SEVEN, will preserve the wisdom and knowledge of those who sustain this incredible environment by letting them tell their story in their words.

Whether in performance or in my studio, my lenses will capture the story within each of you. The story that is waiting to be told.

The Story of You

    It is a wonderful and beautiful thing, to see and feel the story your engaging photos tell. You help give us, the musicians, life and depth to our being. Even if one cannot hear the music your eye captures for posterity, the energy of the moment is clearly there.

    Vincent and Chrystal stopped my my gig last night and as I shared my feelings of gratitude to Vincent for being such a giant in our local community, always generous with his experience and skill, your name came up almost immediately as another larger than life asset to our growing community. I’m so proud to be a small part of your world Michael.
