"Mike Bailey-Gates...what a genius.
I honestly don't think I can say or do enough to match how talented Mike is. You inspire me ridiculous amounts and I just know you will go far. If you don't become super successful,it will be travesty I tell you!
Talent,creativity and uniqueness - you have it all,and i mean that completely. ♥"

"the first time i ever saw your stream
it was like fireworks in my eyes
like the things you captured had
awakened something inside me
you are one of the most amazing photographers
i have ever come across"
June 26th, 2010
Rachel Ramos. says:
"you're photos are pure magic"
November 3rd, 2010
"He just keeps getting better and better. I don't think Mike matures at the same rate as normal humans o.o"
November 14th, 2010
"When I look at his photos I think of the time when you're in between being asleep and awake and everything has a dreamy aspect, or I think of storytellings."
December 31st, 2010
Rebecca Williams. says:
"Despite the fact that fashion-esque photography has never appealed to me, I find myself in awe of Mike's photos. It seems (to me) that his style of photography has changed quite a bit over the last year or two but the two things that have maintained most consistent are the amount of effort shown in his photographs and his determination to create a unique and well composed image. For that, I truly admire him.
Anyone can tell you this, but I thought I'd say it myself- Mike, you're gonna go far."

Maxwell Runko says:
"mike bailey-gates, everytime i think i've seen it all from you you're able to push it further. you expand the mind and make it think and question the abilities. the surrealism captured in each photo has and will always leave me speechless. youre something else, a true artist."
April 24th, 2010
Anna Hollow says:
"so i just now figured i hadn't written mike a testimonial yet!
i'm going to start with the fact that mike is so clever, and so funny.
he takes wondrous photos of places i wish i could go and the thing is, he makes most of them. his sets are so innovative and meticulous. i never would have thought of vhs tapes as a backdrop, or placing a sailboat and fairy lights in one room. his editing is superb. and even though he is such a brilliant mind, he remains so astonishingly humble about it all. i think he's a genius.
and even if he wasn't, he'd still be just an all-around amazing person.
p.s. once somebody was being really mean to me and mike showed me this lovely video that made me feel a thousand times better, and i will always remember that and love him for it.

alexander ward says:
"Pretty damn surreal."

"your imagination is incredible."
February 28th, 2010
"I've never met Mike and I've never had a conversation with him, but I feel as if I've know him for ages which is, by most standards, strange.
But it shouldn't be, because anyone can see that Mike Bailey-Gates pours his everything into his photography. He makes me think and look at things the way I ever have before, and explores regions that our minds normally don't venture into.
He makes me so jealous."
February 19th, 2010
sarah nieman. says:
"mike makes me wonder about life.
mike makes me wonder how things get to be so lovely.
mike makes me wonder if magic is real.
mike makes me wonder if he knows hes incredible."

Eleanor Hardwick says:
"mike's pictures remind me of those winter days when the light shines through the window and makes shapes on the wall and everything is bright and cold and quiet. i love those days."

"Mike's mind is amazing. He is one of the most talented people here on flickr and a big inspiration. There's no doubt that he will be big someday. His photos are magic and have this Tim Walker feel to them.
One of the most unique and beautiful photostreams."

Savina Gost says:
"an incredible boy with a true talent, he leave me speechless every time I visit his stream, I can´t even describe my admiration for him, mike you amazed me!!!!"

caitlin isobel warren says:
"Where do I even start?
..Well, okay, the first time I ever saw Mike's stream I was completely blown away, and I still am everytime I look at it. He has some of the best ideas ever, the amount of creativity he has is just incredible. If I ever need inspiring all I have to do is look at Mike's photos.
I don't really know how to put all I admire and love about his photos into words, so I geuss I'll just leave it at this until I start to ramble xD
Keep up the amazing work, I think you have a very bright future ahead of you. :)"
October 19th, 2009

"Mike has the best imagination of them all. He is the epitome of a genius, and clearly conveys it in his photography.
You are definitely one of my biggest inspirations, and I swear, you're from another world; a fantastical, ethereal dreamworld that I cannot even begin to fathom."

stuff heroes are made of says:
"I hope Mike continues on this path and decides to study conceptual art in college. With his aesthetic coupled with though-provoking ideas, he could receive world admiration!"
September 23rd, 2009
"i would love to explore your mind. your photographs are so beautiful, so enchanting, so whimsical and genius. yes, genius is the right word to describe you, i believe."

Ola Wysocki says:
"wow, there are no words really to explain how much i LOVE his photos. i remember when i first joined flickr, i really didnt have any inspiration for my pictures and then i come to this AMAZING photostream.
each picture has the most unique ideas and honestly, if you looked all over flickr to find another photostream like this, you couldnt. its not possible. this is as original and unique and special as it gets.
not only is from a second story. a great photographer, but you can tell that he is a really nice person. i only talked to him once, but he was very polite. im glad i get to see this amazing person's talent :)"

cream tangerine says:
"I think I first saw Mike's photostream some time last year. When I look at his work from back then and his work from now, I realize that the magic was always there from the very beginning. He always has brilliant ideas and the most amazing lighting. It's unbelievable.
He's definitely one of my favorite teenage photographers on flickr."

You are the most creative person I know, and you give me hope."
June 7th, 2009
"from a second story's work is a HUGE inspiration to me as an artist. hopefully by looking through his photos often enough some creative magic can rub off on me..."
June 6th, 2009
"i don't even know what to put here. mike, you are just plain incredible. a look at your photographs is like looking in to another world, where everything is light and and all the adults are asleep. as well as an artist, you are an incredible person. you're creative and imaginative, and just..nice! please don't ever stop making art, ever ever."

April 23rd, 2009

I updated this, but I am leaving this part in so screw off:

to start of, his photos are incredibly unique and inspirational. Each time I come to his photostream I am blown away by his amazingness. Ha. but seriously I wish that I could take photos like Mike does. So from here on out I will try to take real photos, like he does.
Keep up the good work dude. You keep inspiring me to be better.
