Hi, I'm Mike! I am a Cincinnati based photographer that specializes in Event and Headshot Photography. Check out reviews of my work on my website, Thumbtack, Facebook or Google. I have over eight years of photography experience. I have shot everything from festivals, weddings, mitzvahs, corporate parties, family portraits, pets, and everything in between. I am best at shooting people. I'm very friendly and love that my job gives me the opportunity to meet new people! I have a ton of photography tricks that I've learned over the years to get great shots while maintaining a discreet presence. I also do retouching so your photos will be color corrected and white balanced. This comes at no extra cost with every booking.

For events, I typically use a full frame Canon 5d Mark ii and a Canon T4i as a backup camera that's also great for video. I always have my Canon ex ii speedlight for additional lighting. My workflow tends to be using a wide angle lens to shoot the room or event first, then using a portrait 50mm 1.4 lens for getting specific items from the event like food, gifts, things that are unique to the event. Shooting this stuff first allows people to get used to the idea of seeing me with a camera before jumping in and photographing them. Next I use a zoom lens for any speakers, guest of honor and action shots. I'll stick with the zoom lens for most of the duration unless I need to change to my 50mm to grab just one or two people. For group shots, I'll go back to my wide angle lens. I use Lightroom to make most of my edits.
