    Michael was awesome! From the moment we met, he put us at ease and we knew we hired the right guy. He was great at getting people to be where they needed to be and keeping things moving during the family photos. Then during the reception he was somehow everywhere all the time capturing so many amazing moments. On top of being super professional and taking tons of photos, he was friendly and funny. Michael was always willing to take any photos that we or our guests asked for. We are so glad we found Michael Mason Studios and would recommend him to anyone looking for a great photographer for your event.

    Michael was a DREAM to work with! I wish I could leave more than 5 stars! He made our special day so simple! Michael took candid photos for the wedding as well as THE most beautiful Engagement Photos! Michael was flexible with dates and location and his pricing was extremely reasonable. So thankful to have him their to capture our special day!

    Down to earth, but an absolute professional as far talent for scenes, poses and capturing the right atmosphere. I was extremely comfortable with Michael and he was able to direct me into poses that I felt natural in. He was able to capture my true personality without having me compromise for the sake of "art". I am an upcoming author and will have many other opportunities in which I will need photographs taken. I will be calling on Michael Mason Studios in the future.

    I've hired Michael for over a dozen large events, both solo and with his team. Michael is a supremely talented photographer with a great eye, and on top of it, he's a sheer pleasure to work with. Funny, smart, direct, and knows how to take charge of a group in a very friend way. Great traffic director, gets shots done quickly, everyone loves hims, and he delivers beautiful results. Could not recommend him highly enough. Feel free to contact me at 917-817-1534 if you have any questions.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Every client is unique so it always starts with a conversation. Realizing their vision takes time and an open ear to listen to not only what they’re saying but what they’re not saying. Creating a unique photo and capturing a memory takes energy and an eye to ensure you are always in the right place at the right time. Once the gig is photographed then I work to ensure photos are turned over in an efficient and effective manner. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Many years of on the job training dealing with every type of situation and finding solutions every time. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Every client is a unique pricing for their project. 


How did you get started in this business?

I’ve always been in love with creating art. I started as a professional actor and turned my eye to the visual world while on many tours. I began my work by just photographing everything I was doing and then I just started to study every day. I love people and I have always been fun to be around and I make others feel incredibly calm and fun in front of my lens. I am in the constant pursuit of love and joy and how I can show that through my work. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

All. 

Everyone from a large corporation to a private in home boudoir to little newborns to large weddings. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I loved working as an event photographer for John Jay College. I was able to capture the moment when multiple ex-cons received their college diplomas. So many inspiring stories and speeches. I left with a true sense of joy and drive to really work hard towards any goal no matter the obstacles. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Ask every question you can think of. Then email more you think about afterwards. You aren’t just hiring the quality you’re hiring the person as well. You have to be comfortable and at ease with your photographer. It’s the most important aspect you should look for after quality. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

When, where, who, what is it your trying to capture? Every event has its unique components. It’s really on the photographer to ask about those.
