We had the pleasure to meet Michael Warshall and his mind blowing success story of becoming the world’s wealthiest photographer. Clientele? Royalty. One family portrait session: $10,000. He conducts a 3 month photography workshop for $10,000 in his studio located in a private island, if any of you are interested for a serious photography boot camp.
