"Michael Rawlings Photography was just what we needed to showcase our sponsor at a recent association event. Michael’s willingness to accommodate an unexpected change in our plans demonstrates his love of photography and his customer service. He quickly gave me several options and was quite willing to work with us to overcome this obstacle. He was a joy to work with, and if we ever need a photographer for an event in the Vail area again, I would not hesitate to call Michael." -- Gail Smith, Society of Petroleum Engineers
With more than 30 years of experience as a professional photographer, including 13 years as a full-time photojournalist, I can document any special event, from a 200-person group photo to four days of activities, parties, conferences and award ceremonies. I also offer photography workshops for beginners to advanced amateurs.
I have a complete line of photo and lighting equipment, including top-of-the-line digital cameras. I can provide prints from the images, put them on a disk, send them via e-mail, or post them on a private website. I have an excellent working relationship with a local photo lab, so in addition to a prompt turnaround for processing, I can obtain special services such as an overnight turnaround, should it be requested.
If contracted for a job, I will arrive on time and dressed appropriately for the event and will never send a substitute. However, I am able to subcontract other professional photographers if more than one is needed.
I’m very happy to photograph each event with the style required, whether it’s more of an unobtrusive, “fly-on-the-wall” approach, or a orchestrating and posing photographs or a combination of the two. Communication is the key – discussing beforehand what sort of images we would like to produce from each event.
Once the customized pricing for your event is approved, I will provide a contract so you will know exactly what will be received, how much it will cost and when delivery of the product can be expected.
