“I live in the Midwest and needed a photographer on the west coast. I found Michael on Houzz and hired him to shoot a hotel and a residence, not having ever seen either location in person. That made me a bit nervous because I couldn’t send an art director to the shoot and only had some scouting photos to go by. We provided him with as much art direction as we could on the pre-pro call and Michael assured us that he would shoot way more than we probably needed to provide us with as many images as possible. I was impressed with his confidence and professionalism, and, as promised, we had more than enough images to choose from that highlight our product beautifully. I have since hired him again to shoot our design gallery in Manhattan Beach. This location has extreme midday natural light that provided a challenge. Again, with no art director on set, he delivered beautiful work.”

I've worked with Michael Sage photography for the last 2 years and I've been extremely happy with the outcome of his work He has exceeded all expectations and is prompt with giving me the photos with all the touch-ups if needed. He has always been very professional and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him to any of my fellow designers as he understands the needs of an interior designer.

I've known Michael for many years and he has photographed both my family and my work.  As an architect, I expect great photos of my projects, and as a father, I expect great photos of my family. Michael has consistently provided both for me and made the process fun for everyone involved.  He is a consummate professional and always treats my clients and family with kindness and respect.  He works quickly and effectively and always finds a way to bring out that "little something special" that makes for great photos.  I would not hesitate to recommend Michael for any photo assignment, he'll capture those great moments for you too!

Michael Sage took the photo for the cover of my book. The session was very comfortable, quick, easy and fun!! My picture came out so beautiful and that is because of Michael's professional work. I will definitely hire Michael for my next book cover! I highly recommend you give him a call.  

Thank you so much, Michael!
