About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Creativity and unsurpassed quality that comes from experience, dedication and a commitment to communication and creative collaboration in every assignment.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Loving photography as much as I do, it is sheer joy to bring that passion to every assignment, no matter how large or small the budget. Together, we can create images that capture your character, passion and beauty in a way that will capture the imagination and attention of the viewer. The assignment might be to photograph headshots for a model portfolio, create memories from a special occasion like a wedding or graduation, or memories to gift to a special person, or the assignment might be strictly commercial for a business. While these are very different assignments, they share one common trait: they all need an experienced photographer you can trust, who will make you happy, and who will deliver on time, on budget and on the mark to meet your needs. That is what I do. Every photo shoot presents an opportunity to engage with someone and do more than we imagined.

    I needed a professional headshot photo to publish online and for other job search purposes. ProPhotoNorthwest offered, by far, the best package at the best price and I’m confident that I received far more - both in terms of the tangible product as well as the overall experience (time spent, professionalism, etc.) - than I would have from another business. His portfolio illustrates his breadth and depth of experience, and it reflects how much he likes to push his skill and tools to capture moments of beauty that can be shared with others Mike Decesare came to my location and, without complaint, hauled all of his equipment inside (despite the rain and mud) He was equipped for anything and was able to accommodate both small spaces and large. He made great use of his setup time by asking me questions about my situation and what I needed/wanted from the session, as well as sharing about himself and his experience. I was impressed by how carefully Mike considered every aspect of every shot -- lighting, his position, my position, the backdrop, etc.. He went above and beyond several times, extending our session in order to get shots in a different environment (again, hauling his equipment through the rain). He is transparent and open about his business philosophy, and has an easy way of adapting to situations that invites others to be comfortable when he’s behind the lens; he was professional and amiable throughout the entire session. As for the final product, I couldn't be more satisfied and look forward to working with him again in the future.
