We hired Michael for a shoot for my family in May. We absolutely love Michael and his work. He was able to blend in with our family and take those candid and planned moments, which is exactly what we where looking for. The shots yielded photos and memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Michael and his assistant were easy to work with in both his set up the day of the shoot and the day he delivered the images on our very own website. Michael is also quick to respond to text and emails.Aug 23, 2019MSphotography's reply

Kwame, thank you, look forward to working with you again!
Michael has a great eye for getting amazing and unique shots. I've known Michael for years and he's a lot of fun to work with, open to suggestions, and has a great creative flare for capturing unscripted and candid moments, which are my favorite shots. I've worked with Michael on quite a few projects already including headshots and he was our go to guy for providing amazing photos of actors and guests during our film premiers as well as capturing moments on the runway at local fashion shows both large and small. There will definitely be many more to come. Would definitely recommend.Jun 24, 2019MSphotography's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing corresponds with the quality of photos that I give you. I spend on average about 2 hrs a shoot, I won't stop until I get the results you deserve. I leave no stone unturned in satisfying my Client's desires. Once the shot is done I take pride in editing your pictures. I am meticulous in editing and you will not be disappointed in the end product. I don't produce garbage and take pride in my work. It is all about the details, because you only get one shot at capturing the moment.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Communication with my Clients is key. I ask them what their vision is and ask for them to see some examples of other photos that they envision themselves doing. I go over what their wardrobe and give suggestions as well if they are unsure. I will look for examples of what they are looking for and discuss whether or not it is something they are comfortable with.I make sure I know what their expectations are and assure them that I am on the same page. I let them know who maybe my Assistant if I feel I need one, so there are no suprises when they show up. I confirm time, place, and payment method. I follow up with Client closer to shoot to ensure there is any changes to plan or their vision. When the shoot is finished, I let them know when and how they can expect to see the results. I will post to a webpage, which only they can see, to be able to view and download images so they can post, share, or print. I always follow up and get the customer's feedback, because I really care and take each shoot personally.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have taken college and non-credit courses in Photography. I have been practicing my craft for over 20 years. I am always striving to learn new techniques and looks.
