About Me


Hello everyone! I am Michael Cottone, an 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 purely as a hobby. 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.

Outside of taking photos, I am passionate about music, writing, painting & travel. My ultimate goal is to mesh each of these passions of mine, one way or another. Documenting what I see as I travel, whether it be from touring with a band/artist, exploring new territories or working on photo essays of unique people, places and events. 

Book me for a show, portrait session, fashion work, etc. 

My email for inquires is michaelcottone22@gmail.com
