Thank you. I appreciate your comments. Enjoyed working with you.
Our office used Michael to take professional color headshots. Michael was very easy to work with, extremely accommodating and overall made the process very painless. Everyone is pleased with their new photos. I look forward to working with Michael again!Apr 9, 2014Verified
- What types of customers have you worked with?I shoot a lot of people for personal and professional use. Often a CEO or staff. I am equipped with a studio to shoot products as well as people. I shoot on location as well. I do quite a bit of facilities photography including aerials. I am very good with mixed lighting situations. I am also a professional instructor/mentor of Photography as well as Photoshop.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?The best thing a client can do for the photographer is to give an accurate assessment of the project they need photographed. Similar samples can be helpful. Look for a photographer that has experience if quality is important. When viewing the photographer's work, look for something that is similar to what your needs are. Not every photographer can shoot any project. Mixed lighting situations can be challenging. A realistic shot list that can be shared with the photographer prior to the shoot will also aid in the flow and preparation of your project. When looking for a quote, it is to your advantage as well as the photographer's to quote "on the project" vs. the outdated "day rate" When you have your photography scheduled- make sure all involved on your end is prepared and ready for the shoot. I have had so many occasions where I came in and the place or products were not ready- simply because the employees were not informed.
