Photography as Science
RIFLE DOWN—CAMERA UP
Mychal Watts a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps that worked to become a Professional Entertainment Photographer after serving our great nation. I developed a keen talent for my photography working at a professional photo lab in New York City Box One as a professional photo technician and earning the distinction of a Master Black and White and Color Technician.
During a 9 year tenure at Box One I was introduced to Entertainment Photographer John Bellisimo (R.I.P.) who then introduced me to Entertainment Photographer Kevin Mazur who I eventually became his Technical advisor helping to build his brand, assistant and second shooter for Kevin Mazur Photography. One day Kevin decided to throw me in the water with the sharks and sent me to shoot a concert George Clinton and the Funkadelics at Central Park. The images published in RollingStone Magazine and I was now hooked! I was hooked on Entertainment photography! This exposure eventually landed me to gigs covering Sundance Film Festivals, Grammys, Oscars, Oscars after parties, A list actors, Music Concerts and Red Carpet events, as well as presser assignments for WireImage/Getty Images for media placement. To see the work that is done by not just a Photographer, But an excellent multi genres photographer with quality unsurpassed quality in every genre as show on this website.
Second accomplishment was becoming the Director of Photography Services for the Coalition to Salute Americas Heroes a charity organization that provides financial and emotional family support for wounded troops returning home from injuries received during combat tours in the middle east.
That allowed me the opportunity to produce an awe-inspiring photographic compilation of those who have paid the ultimate price.
Based in New York City, my current focus is Creative Portraiture, Fashion Editorials & Beauty, Actor Headshots. I remain a contributor and stringer photographer at WireImage/Getty.
