About Me


Hello everyone! I am Michael Cottone, a non-binary (they/them) artist currently based in the Indianapolis, IN region. I am self taught in each of my artistic hobbies. In regards to photography, I started my senior year in high school just to try something new. Since then, taking photos has become an immense passion of mine because of its ability to tell stories, convey emotion and have a moving effect on people. I recently graduated from Ball State University with a degree in photojournalism & a minor in peace studies & conflict resolution.

However, I don't consider myself just a photographer. I am also an active painter, poet & dabble in making music. Being versatile is imperative as an artist in today's world and I've never been one to limit myself to one thing. It's beautiful to see how similar feelings/moments can be conveyed through different art forms. 

I am available for work in the Indianapolis area, but willing to travel for the right price! 

Contact me for an event/show, portrait session, fashion work, painting commissions, etc. 

My email for inquiries is michaelcottone22@gmail.com
