31 Years of experience

I am a commercial photographer and have been doing this for over 25 years. I love my craft and I have tons of experience in editorial, advertising, product and catalog or eCommerce photography. Photographing people is where my reverence is...but most of all...I become a long term relationship with all of my clients. I am considered humble, witty, charismatic, and genuinely caring. Look forward to working with you and your team.

Awards, honors and recognition

Hunh? My ego was left at the door. Awards are for ego and it's just silly. Next...!

A fun fact about me

I was an alter boy and I went to a seminary. I was making backyard movies with my best friend who also went to the seminary, as a kid (aged 13) and I am still in the visual medium to this day. I also love to make furniture with my bare hands.

    When I asked Michael about what I wanted in the way of photos, he really listened to me. When it came time for my photo shoot I was a little nervous, but Michael put me at ease right away and the pictures came out awesome.The pictures took my breath away.

    Michael was wonderful to work with and delivered exactly what he promised. He started with a phone call to make sure we were on the same page regarding expectations and followed through with wonderful photography in the timeframe we discussed. Excellent photography and service!

    Michael is absolutely amazing! As a photographer he is brilliant with capturing the right scene, in the perfect lighting. As a person he is kind, understanding and compassionate... but is still able to get the job done by the deadline.

    Michael is very professional and knowledgeable about everything and all that is photography. In my photo session, he was able to coach and direct me in a very professional manner without getting frustrated at the amateur I am, when it comes being photographed. His work was well done and well received. I would like to thank him for the opportunity I had to work such a talented artist.

    It was definitely a pleasure working with Michael. He came to our warehouse fully prepared with his studio equipment. After a half day of taking professional product photos for us, Michael is still continuing to fining and tuning the photos per our special request. He cares about his customers and his work!
