    I really enjoyed working with Mike. I had never done a shoot like this before so didn't even really know what I was looking for. His experience and knowledge about doing head shots was obvious and exactly what I needed. He explained he needed to get me to laugh spontaneously to get the shot he wanted and he was great at doing that. The biggest challenge was making a final choice as there were so many good shots to choose from.

About this pro

In my work..people are engaged. I focus 90% of the session on expression, and making people comfortable in front of the camera. The lighting is crisp and modern. You will instantly stand out from everyone else in your field who went to the mall for their headshot. I love getting to meet a multitude of different people. I love being able to change people's self image. More times than I can count, people have told me that they didn't think they could ever take that good of a picture.

    Q & A

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am personally trained by one of the best headshot photographers in the world, Peter Hurley. I am currently one of his Associate Photographers here in Chicago.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I started out as an actor. Photography was a hobby of mine. One of my theatre friends needed headshots for upcoming auditions, and she asked if I would take them for her. I had no idea what I was doing, but I did it. Then I had another friend ask me..and another..and another. Well I decided if I was going to keep doing this..I should know what I am doing. I came across the work of NY headshot photographer Peter Hurley. Through his personal teaching..I now am where I am today.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      Headshots for actors and performers. Social media headshots for lawyers, realtors, and corporate professionals. Personal branding images for people who use themselves to advertise their business.
