Testimonials and Trust

Lots of people say they do video work.
Michael actually knows how to do it.
— Brent Jones, SEDP
In this age where everyone has a camera on their phone, one may be tempted to think that anyone can shoot a photograph. Not true. An investment with Michael will yield a beautiful, creative, thought-provoking (if need be) image that will enhance. Michael also works well with us before, during, and after a shoot to be sure that we get the right shot, and then have it processed and packaged for proper use.
— Tom Cook, The Cook Family Foundation
Michael Jordan is a great photographer and more. I truly enjoy working with Michael on every project. He combines a creative soul with business acumen to achieve great results every time.
Whenever I am stumped for the right approach to a project, Michael is there and ready with ideas or just to share his knowledge.
— Andrew Ward, Senior Art Director



We take it seriously when we say we promise to use leading-edge technology, encourage cost effective solutions and deliver materials that are easy to use across modern marketing platforms.



About that photographer

MY NAME IS Michael

I’ve worked as a commercial photographer and visual communications expert for over 30 years. 

Covering the gambit of commercial photography, video, and 2d/3d animation - from coffee to cars. After receiving formal education in photography, I traveled lots of miles over the roads of Michigan learning the diversity of the craft, from the studios of Detroit to the industrial fields of Dow Chemical.
