Michael Clark is a 30-year-old freelance filmmaker and documentary photographer from Australia. Specialising as a documentary cinematographer and editor, Michael’s work focuses on human stories told through the art of film. He has a keen interest in the impact films can have on how we relate with one another, and the experience it gives to our ever-growing perspectives. Leaving a career in the structural engineering industry, Michael chose to go back and study film at Curtin University. He has now been working professionally as a filmmaker for over 10 years and has created marketing, promotional and educational content for large corporate companies, local government groups, higher education groups as well as local and overseas NFPs.
Amongst all of this, his first passion was always photography. As a child, he started taking photos with his dad's Olympus OM-20. Recently Michael has chosen to embark on documentary and photojournalistic projects, utilising his love for street photography as well as the knowledge and practices he has learnt from documentary filmmaking. His work has taken him to countries such as Indonesia, China, Hong Kong and India, although Michael still has a strong desire to capture and tell the stories and perspectives found in his home country, Australia.
