Michael Woodward, a D.C. Metro area native, has taken pictures all his life, but only started taking photography seriously in 1998. He began what he called "The White Chair Project" where he would invite people to sit for portraits in an overstuffed white chair in his home studio.
Word-of-mouth spread about Michael's ability to capture the true personality of his subjects and in 2001, he started Michael Woodward Photography, specializing in artistic portrait and head shots.
About the same time, Michael was introduced to the D.C. alternative/gothic scene and began to frequent clubs, making a name for himself as a scene photographer. In 2004, he shifted focus from alternative and gothic to artistic portrait and fashion.
Being passionate about people, photography and the modeling industry, Michael began co-hosting networking events for D.C based photographers, models, makeup artists, hair and wardrobe
stylists in early 2007 and it was at one of these events that Michael met Luis and Kathy Aragon and soon after, joined in founding Studio 400.
Michael graduated from Mary Washington College in 1995 with a degree in Computer Science and has never taken a photography class.
