We needed acting headshots and in a hurry! Not only did he book us in last minute, but was very patient (some photographers rush through) and captured my daughters beautiful personality and features perfectly! He also helped us in selecting the headshots. There were so many we liked! Definitely worth it!Sep 16, 2020Mike Schalk Photography's reply

Mike was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend to anyone who needs a photographer for their corporate event. He captured the shots that were needed and delivered photos in a very timely manner. Mike jumped in and shot 2 different events in 2 days for us. From beginning to end my experience with Mike was top notch.Aug 2, 2019VerifiedMike Schalk Photography's reply
I loved this event! Facebook provided a lot of great info to the community and these events are tremendously helpful to business owners and people wanting to utilize Facebooks tools. Thanks so much Michael.
I contacted Mike about taking professional headshots for a colleague of mine in our Cincinnati office. Being hundreds of miles away in Texas, I greatly appreciated Mike's responsiveness and professionalism. The photos came out great and were done in a matter of days. Thanks Mike!Apr 14, 2020Mike Schalk Photography's reply

Mike did a fantastic job getting great family photos in a tight space with limited time. I am soooo pleased!Dec 1, 2019VerifiedMike Schalk Photography's reply
So great to work with you and your family Shanda!
I have followed Mike on social media for a while and I liked the way he photographs and does head shots. He works with your schedule and makes you feel very comfortable. He really goes along with anything and helps you pick out your outfits/accessories/decor. He also has a lot of pointers to help you get the perfect shots. He has a studio, but also shoots anywhere you want. He knows the perfect angles and will direct you for the shots if you don't know what you are doing.:) Mike is very patient and when he was taking pictures of our son was using his special tricks to make him smile. I am very happy with my portraits and my husband will be able to use his head shots for his business page. You can also hire Mike to shoot an event, such as a birthday party. Mike was a pleasure to work with!Aug 30, 2018Mike Schalk Photography's reply
