“Thank you Michael for a fun relaxing shoot. I was a ball of nerves and you set me at ease. Also thank you for confirming what I already knew…..My kids are gorgeous outside and in! I had never had professional photographs taken of our family unless you count the couple I had taken at one of those department store studios. I was never quite satisfied with those, they looked stiff and definitely posed. Since my kids are on the brink of starting their own adventures in life, I wanted to capture the essence of our family. After reading a couple of your blogs and browsing your galleries I decided to give this type of professional photo shoot a try. Would I actually get pictures that show us or just more prettily posed shots? Boy was I blown away when I opened the album of the shots you took! You did it! There looking at me from my computer screen was my family! Beautiful pictures yes, but also pictures that are full of life! You have given me a precious gift, my family preserved for all time!”

“Please add me to the Michael Albany fan club. Michael did my first picture (at the Free Business Shots) and we have stayed in touch. After reading his eBook “My Personal Portrait” I realized it was time for an updated shot. Michael really puts a lot of time, energy, and effort into his work and it shows. The shoots are a lot of fun and the conversation is wide ranging and lively; e.g., from cats to his IT work to photography to Star Trek. What is most interesting is his charity and volunteer work. I highly recommend Michael and his work.”

“Michael did a great job of talking and making me feel at ease from the start of our portrait session. He caught several shots which were not ‘posed’. I suspect that is the method of his madness!

Michael’s follow-through was great. He committed to a short turn-around, and then delivered the finished product even sooner! He showed the same speed in follow-up communications and inquiries too…a great character trait in today’s world.

Thanks for a great experience.”

“I met Michael Albany in August 2009, when he kindly volunteered to take portraits of unemployed business people who might need a classy photo to aid their job search. Michael’s photos were well done and he made myself and the others I met that day feel very at ease. Michael later helped me size the photos he took for various websites. His generosity and positive spirit is matched by his skill as a photographer. I would certainly recommend Michael for photo assignments.”

“Michael has the creativity and drive to make expert photographs, be entrepreneurial and make the world a bit better place. In August 2009, in one fell swoop, Michael aided dozens of job seekers by helping them put their best face forward while simultaneously networking with many future customers. This is the true marriage of art and commerce.”

“I recently had a business photograph taken by Michael. I wanted to have a picture available for LINKED-IN and a professional bio. The experience was a positive one. The actual shoot was professionally and expertly handled with quality customer service. The photos was quickly received with assistance provided to crop the photo for LINKED-IN. I recommend Michael if you are looking for a pleasant and easy experience with a quality product. You won’t be disappointed.”

“Michael Albany is one of those rare photographers that work with the client, not against them. I have hired Michael many times for my meetings and events, and he always brings the “A” game. I also direct a coffee house in the Willow Grove area and Michael has been invited by the board to have a showing on July 24, 2009. I highly recommend you consider Michael for your personal event needs as well as for your corporate and association events.”

“Michael was very kind to give me advice about starting out my photography business on my post on the Linkedin Photography Industry Professionals group. Michael’s recommendation had given me a clear direction on what to focus on with my photography training and career. I was very impressed with the amount of technical knowledge Michael had for photography. I would highly recommend Michael for any professional photography services.”

“Michael took the photo for my profile. Not only did it turn out well, but he was patient and good-humored in ensuring that he had the best “blink free” shot. He was a pleasure to work with!”
