Mike Banks is a widely published and experienced music industry photographer now offering photography to people and companies looking for a special and individual quality 'look'. Photography and video has been used by the BBC, the Grammy's, manufacturers, companies, various music industry publications and newspapers. More recently, picture and video production that includes artists promo work has been growing.
