This has been a really amazing experience. Your images are gorgeous. You have an amazing sense of composition, color, tone, and subject. I am so thrilled with these images and feel you got right to the heart of what TIMBR is all about. I feel these images speak to the elevated, emotional nature of what I do. I had an idea in mind of what I wanted, but you took it way beyond into an artistic form which is exactly what I could only have dreamed about. What made this so great was your ability to lead the art direction, be a listener and explore your creativity.

Shooting with Mike was a blast! Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable on how to pose his subjects, he has an eye for things not many people see. If you get the chance to collaborate, be a subject, or just watch him do his craft, take him up on it! You won’t be disappointed.

Mike is one of my favorite photographers to work with because he's one of the few who focuses on a vision and doesn't just shoot 1,000 images. He knows what he wants, and he executes it perfectly.

Posing for a photoshoot was completely out of both of our comfort zones, but Mike made it so fun! He helped us relax and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. It was very cool to see how Mike was able to work with the sunset and all of the aspects of downtown Duluth to incorporate into the photos. We are so happy with how the photos turned out and how unique they are. We had such a blast, and it was a great experience!

Mike is great to work or collaborate with and has a lot of creativity in his shooting style. He has a keen eye for detail, and I highly recommend him for portraits!

Spent a lovely afternoon in January with Mike. He created a wonderful experience along with some lovely photos. Modeling felt very natural, and it was great getting to know another artist in the community.
