BEHIND THE LENS

It’s not every day that a person finds their passion in high school, but that is just
what happened for 14-year-old Hudson Michaels. Raised mostly in Oakland
California but lived all over the Bay Area. Hudson found himself taking pictures
and editing for the yearbook at 14 and learned he was pretty good at it. But like
most people, he didn’t stick with it; after graduation, Hudson joined the Navy and
served active duty for ten years. After 24 years of traveling to 40plus different
countries and living in 3 foreign countries (the Czech Republic being the longest )
Hudson found himself back behind the camera in 2018 and has been pursuing
photography professionally ever since. In the five years, Hudson has been published
with Dreamy Magzine, Dezire Magazine, Pacific Northwest Modeling Magazine,
Cosplayzine and a few others. Hudson has also worked with The City of Seattle, Microsoft, Seattle Pride, Chance Fashion, Emerald City Comic Con, and Geek Girl Con. Being on the spectrum, it is essential for Hudson to find normalcy and peace, so before shoots, he likes to take time to himself and withdraw a little bit so he can make sure his social meter is up to par. To do this, he will spend less time on social media, only talk to his children or immediate family; he will also indulge in his other hobbies like twitch. His favorite pictures to take are editorial and portraits.
When Hudson isn’t behind the camera or preparing for a shoot, he will stream his editing, video games, artworks, and drawing. Hudson also enjoys spending time with his two boys, teaching them photography, playing with them, and taking naps in living room forts with them.
