Michael Gomez - Owner of Westlight Studios, Franklin
Michael started his commercial photography business in Nashville at the age of 24 and is the owner of Westlight Studios in Franklin, Tennessee.
With some college behind him, Michael took a suggestion from a friend and thought it would be fun to try acting as a career. After a visit to photo studio in Nashville for some commercial head shots, he walked away forgetting about acting and fixed on a photography career instead. Since that day he has never looked back. Michael took some basic courses in photography but had no concern about a diploma. He started to work as an assistant for some great local photographers and other national photographers coming into Nashville from larger markets. While working as a photographer’s assistant, Michael started to gain clients by shooting for local and out of town modeling agencies. Word of mouth advertising worked well for Michael and soon he gained larger clients.
Michael has mostly worked within the music business shooting music promotional shots for artists, and record labels. Other clients include advertising companies, personal portraits, models, actors, celebrity and equine.
