    Mike Herod is a great person to work with. He is very good at what he does, he is accepting of your ideas, willing to try new things, and on top of it all he is respectful. I would highly recommend hiring him.

    I worked with Michael on a wedding shoot for Ready or Knot. It was a great experience. Michael was very friendly and helped to ensure I felt comfortable. He helped ensure that the photos looked very deliquite and sophisticated while I felt relaxed and comfortable. Working with Michael was a wonderful experience.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Mike a my best friends wedding. The company original hired fell through and mile came to save the day. After speaking with Mike I could truly tell his was very interested and knowledgeable about what he loved to do. I really think it was meant to be when Mike filled in to shoot the wedding photos. And I know the couple would say the same. Mike is a honest hard working person and I couldn't be more happier to see what he's capable of doing when he has his camera. Thanks

    I was very lucky to find such a great photographer. Mike was true to his quote on prices to. He was just so professional, and helpful with all of our questions. He listened carefully to our needs, also when I wanted to shadow my son into some of our pictures. I totally would give him a 5 star recommendation. Mike and Linda Sherrett Plattsmouth, NE

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I regularly enroll in education courses and have masters I work under that mentor me. Photography is a skilled trade similar to carpentry and the more experience you can surround yourself with the better you become, the gear while important is actually the smallest part of the equation, it's no different than a stove not making us better chefs.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've worked with a wide variety of clients but the clients that work best my with approach to wedding photojournalism are couples that truly understand what their day is about and know that while the details and planning can make it nice it doesn't make the day. They just want to be together and surrounded by friends and family.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Figure out what style you prefer and understand what to expect with each style. Do you want a wedding photographer that does a lot of nice posed shots but at the cost of turning your day into a photo shoot. Do you want a more photojournalistic approach that is predominately hands off and specializes in capturing intimate moments.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Talk to friends and family, a lot of people heavily base their decision on budget expectations that aren't realistic for the level of skill they are hoping for and become extremely disappointed. You will have friends and family that will give you first hand accounts of this.
