Introduction: For 13 years I have delivered high end client focused imagery on purely referral basis. By listening intently to needs, filtering those through broad experience, I'm able to guide clients to unique and effective visuals. Prior to focusing full time on photography, I spent 12 years in communications, marketing and executive visibility. This allows me to work fluidly from the board room to the recording studio, with global leaders to local entrepreneurs with ease. Fully equipped with industry leading Canon and Sony equipment, a full suite of Profoto lighting and modifiers, and the ability to work in studio or on location, I enjoy tackling a diverse set of client challenges, and always over service. I rely fully on client's word of mouth recommendations, and work accordingly. I look forward to working with you in the near future.

I highly recommend Mike; we had a great experience! The quality of his work was excellent and his follow through was impeccable and timely! I hired him to do a modeling photo shoot for my 16 year old son. It was his (son) first time doing anything like this and he was very nervous. At the start of the session, Mike said all the right things to assuage his anxiety and they were off and running. I would hire Mike again in a second!

It was a blast and I truly appreciate the kind words. He did great, and I bet it won’t be his last opportunity in from of a camera.

What an experience! Professional, intuitive, talented, and personable. Mike is apparently well-known as a local, special events photographer, so our expectation was already elevated when we hired him to shoot pre-performance and live photos of a live vocal performance. This, knowing that most events have poor lighting, difficulty with crowded spaces, and acoustics to drive anyone to distraction. Still, Berklee College of Music’s events coordination team said, “Mike is a pro. Hopefully he’s available.” And they, who shall remain generally referred to, aren’t really supposed to make recommendations. Best decision we could have made for an important first performance because Mike was not only the professional we expected, he was also very in tune with the artist’s energy and even nervousness; intuitively working to help build her comfort level and adjusting the scene and positioning to keep her engaged and fully present. Something, I believe, that helped her as she was also mentally preparing to hit the stage. That was an unanticipated benefit to hiring Mike Spencer. The lighting, crowds, deluge of music, and conversations all around us - fell away. The photos, by the way, are incredible.

I hired Mike to do some professional headshots. And yes, I know, cell phones can do a lot these days, and Portrait Mode is pretty amazing . . . but there's also the human element in getting a good picture. Mike worked with me to get the best version of me in my headshots - we discussed the need, the context, and the setting. From there, he talked me through the shoot, got me to relax, and coached me to be the best representation of myself. I am really happy with the way they turned out, and would very highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to present the best version of themself to the world.
