Introduction: I'm new to Thumbtack, but not to photography. I've been doing photography on the side since 1978, including headshots, high school senior portfolios, family pictures and the occasional wedding. Need a headshot for business? Want a family portrait? Photoshop or Lightroom editing? I would be happy to take care of that for you at a reasonable price. I'm willing to travel to your location and currently have very flexible hours.

We connected right away... he picked up my photo at my house. Both of us have a planned trip during this time, so have not received the completed project. I was pleased with his professionalism and knowledge at first meeting.

I had to get some photos taken and was looking for something reasonable priced. Michael was responsive and so was able to schedule and appointment on the same day. He and his wife were really easy to work with and had suggestions for locations. I would recommend them.

Portrait Photography

I really enjoyed working with Michael - he was patient and accommodating, and got back to me very promptly with the final edits. The pictures looked superb post processing despite foggy and low light weather conditions. Also, he made the experience easy by helping out with blankets and sweatshirts despite the challenging weather conditions we faced.

Michael digitalized 4 albums filled with black and white pictures. These are my family treasures! He not only scanned the album pages, but after that cut out and edited every single picture residing on these pages. I got both, the scanned full pages with multiple pictures and the edited single pics. He was prompt and responsive to my requests. I am happy with the results and would use his services again.

He has not responded in weeks after I gave him the jot. I want to hear from him. Have him send me email to report on what he is doing.
