April 2010, “Simply put, Mike is a superb photographer dedicated to his craft and focused on his assignments. He takes direction well, but is not shy about offering insightful input when appropriate. He has a very creative eye and fusses about the details until a shot is just right. A story-teller by nature, he is a master at illustrating a point using photography. I heartily recommend him to anyone who appreciates the value of a talented and hard working professional photographer.” April 22, 2010 Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity Ed Coumou , CPF Marketing hired Mike as a Photographer in 1998, and hired Mike more than once.

January 2010, “One in a Million! Mike's work is not only highly creative but he is able to keep in mind the 'eye candy' the ' artistic lure' but the practical application and, most importantly, the budget. Whenever I've hired Mike he gives me far more than I paid for. He goes the distance and does not moan along the way. I highly recommend Mike's work. Petrushka / htt;//factandfable.com” January 7, 2010 Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative Petrushka Pavlovich  hired Mike as a Photographer in 2009, and hired Mike more than once

December 2009 These look great Mike. Scott Hamann COVENANT BUILDERS, Inc. 170 Mt. Quay Dr. NW - Issaquah, WA 98027 (425) 369-0635 fax (425) 427-9219

February, 2009 “Besides the obvious talent Mike has as a photographer, he is a person of vision. He is hard-working and loyal to those who are loyal to him. His desire is to do well, and so he does, period! He brings a certain calmness to the process of the work he is doing without compromising his focus. I was fortunate to have witnessed him at work with college publications during our SU days.” February 21, 2009 Bev Minor, Student, Seattle University, Studied with Mike at Seattle University 1972.
