MICHELLE OLAYA. Ecuador, 1983. 


Hi there! I am Freelance Music Photographer based in Bavaria – Germany, and who has been living in Europe since 2001.


It was in 2007 when I started to focus more in combining my passion for photography and music, that is how somehow XMDMXHCX PHOTOS was born.


I have been cooperating and working for several hardcore and punk bands, as well as international press and actually working as official photographers of THE SOUND OF REVOLUTION FESTIVAL in  Eindhoven - The Netherlands since its 1st edition in 2016. 


On Summer 2015 I published my first photo book called THE BLOOD AND THE SWEAT, which gathers hundred of photographs of shows and tattoos related with the hc and punk scene. Actually working in a couple of photographic printed projects.



If you would like to count with me for any photo work or any project just let me know, it would be a pleasure cooperate with you!
