Headshots That Deliver!

Remarkable Images for Those who Deserve to be Noticed

Michael did my daughters new headshots and he was beyond amazing to work with. He was completely professional and patient with us and took the time to really talk to my daughter and myself about what we were looking for in this shoot. His work speaks for itself and this won’t be the last time we work with him. His studio is fantastic, his recommendation for a makeup artist was perfect, and the final shots were incredible.

Someone suggests you need a headshot - could be a boss, an agent, you start a business, or join a new firm.

You’re an Actor, a Model, a Real Estate Agent, a CEO, a Dancer, a Musician, or maybe an Entrepreneur promoting a business on LinkedIn. Whatever the reason, you suddenly need to perform, look your best AND create an image that looks Awesome! No pressure right?

The fact is, most people I know, regardless of whether they are seasoned professionals in front of a camera or complete first timers, freeze in front of a camera when it comes to their headshot.

My approach to working with people sets them at ease, whether they are full of confidence or have NEVER seen a photo of themselves they like! I have a method which quickly breaks down some of the fears because I don’t try to “do it right” and “get the perfect image”. I want you to be yourself - I will guide you through a simple process while I focus on the eyes, the expression, the feeling of the moment. I work to get the best possible shot which defines your personality in the persona you are trying to portray. Overall, in the short time we have together, my one goal is to empower you and make you proud of your headshot!

Michael is one of my favorite photographers in the Ohio , Nky areas to shoot with . He has a great attention to detail & mastering the lighting for every shoot . He’s very thorough and professional when it comes to shooting with any talent . I would feel comfortable referring him to anyone in the industry. He has a great eye for headshots.
