Michael Graham is photographer with over 15 years of professional experience. As a native Iowan, his calm demeanor is not an act, he genuinely wants to please others. His clients not only love his quality of work, but also rave about how easy he is to work with. “His work and visual aesthetics are reflected in his attention to detail, beautiful lighting abilities and a precise understanding of the desired outcome.” - Jamie Bolak, Sandler Training
While I do find satisfaction in capturing moments and producing results, at the end of the day I get the most enjoyment when my clients love the work.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
When I do headshots at a company I like to get there early and get a tour so I have a chance to meet the people who will be stepping in front of my camera. The extra time helps the subjects feel more comfortable with me and this can be seen in the results.
