How does your service stand out?

I want to provide my clients with the best images I can possibly give them. I offer a wide variety of services. Traditional portraits, Corporate and Acting Headshots, Boudoir, Weddings and Events, Real Estate, Aerial and even Photo Booths.

What sets me apart from others is that not only do I offer so many services but I'm also very good at each service I offer. With more than 15 years in the trade I've done a lot. LOL

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Simply put, I love everything about my job. As a creative minded person, having the ability to create something on a daily basis is a dream come true. Working with clients challenges my creativity and helps keep me on my toes so I don't get bored.

  • 5/5 stars Headshot Photography (Custom) Verified Review

    I had some headshots taken by Mike. I'm happy with them and he was fast in sending them. Completely recommend Mike

  • 5/5 stars

    It's always a pleasure getting our pictures taken by Mike. Mike's done a handful of photo shoots for our family. Our last photo session was in October. I wanted to get full family pictures done using the natural fall foliage background. They came out amazing. Only I know that my little guy is holding a donut (it was the only way I could get him to sit still). Mike was very patient with us and even got a bunch of great candid shots in between family poses. The shoot before that was in a park. Mike never hesitated to get lie on the ground or run around to get that perfect shot. I love that I get my pictures back quickly and I’ve yet to be disappointed. I look forward to having maternity pictures done soon. And we will definitely be having Mike take newborn shots in the summer. From what I've seen it's not just his profession, photography is Mike's passion.

Question and answer

Q. What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

A. Depending on what kind of service they need, I like to meet with each client in person if possible. I find it hard to get to know a person's personality via emails and texts. Meeting in person let both parties get familiar with each other and work out details that might get overlooked without that personal interaction.

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. Besides working for myself I also work for other studios where I'm exposed to new techniques and styles all the time. I've also completed numerous online classes and am a member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA).

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I'd done photography as a hobby for years. When the building industry crashed in the late 90's, I turned my hobby into a career.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I've worked with all kinds of customers of all ages. One of the studios I work with specializes in School Portraits. There's so much diversity in schools. Different ages, ethnicities, languages, handicaps, etc. I love working with so many different types of people.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. First and foremost, look at examples of their work. Lots of people can take "PICTURES" but you need the right tools and "know how" to take "PORTRAITS". Lighting is crucial, and a professional photographer knows how to light their subjects in ways that flatter them.

My next bit of advice is to make sure you're comfortable with the photographer. If they can't make you feel at ease, it will show in your portraits. If you're not comfortable with them, don't work with them. There may be nothing wrong with the person but, if you're not comfortable it will show in the portraits.

Lastly, you get what you pay for! LOL

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. I wish people understood how much thought really goes into portraiture. It's so much more then just snaping a picture. A photographer has just a few minutes to get to know a person. In that short time they need to relate to them and understand what kind of personality they have. They need to be able to know the difference between a person's real smile or a fake one and they need to be able to figure out what kind of photo that person will be happiest with. While knowing how to take a great picture is important there is so much more to it. A person may know how to take a great portrait but if they don't know how to interact with the client and make them feel at ease, they'll never get a really great portrait.
