“Hi Michael, Hope you are well. It has been along time since I was in contact with you. My colleague Cherie Cincilla will be getting in contact with you for some future assignments in Ireland, I have passed on your contact information to her. I hope that works out, I’d love to have you shooting for us again. Thanks for your help, and hope we can work together again soon. Best, Alden

Michael has been instrumental in producing top quality photography for our higher end properties, many of which have been used by national and international newspapers as a result. I would highly recommend him and he is also a decent fella to deal with.
Andrew Crowley, Principal at Sherry Fitzgerald Crowley
I have worked with Michael on several commercial projects. I've found him very approachable and easy to get on with - especially when clients are present on photoshoots. Nowadays anyone can take a photo, but with Micheal he can get you that 'memorable shot', the one that will make the front page or the shot that will make your products standalone from your competitors. Michael is a first class photographer.
Neil Close, Marketing Professional in B2B and B2C
Michael is a photographer who brings a wealth of creativity and expertise to any project. As a press photographer his work is impeccable and his unique approach to any assignment is guaranteed to enhance the quality of the finished report. An award winner in many categories, Michael's commitment to getting the best results possible is testament to his own high standards which reflect our continued business contacts with him.
Declan McGuire, Operations Manager at The Connacht Tribune
We have worked with photographers from the UK and Ireland over last decade but Michael's work has been the best in all honesty. We received wonderful feedback from parents for stunning performance and dress rehearsal images for Teenage Stage International Summer School with Into The Woods in 2016 and Sweeney Todd School Edition in 2017. Michael has a highly skilled instinct on the right show image at the right time and captures "exciting actors in the moment" that we were literally spoiled for choice for our 2018 brochures.
