About Us

Michael’s Portrait Design is one of the most sought-after portrait studios in west-central Wisconsin. In 1994, Michael earned his degree in photography, and has since received numerous state and national awards, he is also recognized by the Professional Photographers of America as a Certified Professional Photographer, one of approximately 2,000 photographers nationwide.

Always looking to add fresh ideas to the studio, we seek out the national trends in photography and implement them into our already unique style. We provide true professional portraiture to clients from the entire Chippewa Valley and beyond.

Whether you're a high school senior or a soon to be bride you know that having a fun photographer translates directly into having a memorable experience. That what set us apart from other studios, our perfect blend of professionalism and fun. Tricia and I have a wonderful life outside of photography that filters into our studio. It’s what keeps us constantly changing and current also with whats happening in photography today. We're energetic but with a laid-back attitude, you won't find a photographer that works harder to provide quality and service. One without the other just won't cut it.

It’s not just about the technical aspects of photography... more importantly it’s the comfort level that a customer has during the session with their photographer . Michael firmly believes that a clients expression is the most important part of the session. “Really unique backgrounds, composition and poses are a must with todays clients... but it really comes down to one thing... a great smile or expression that fits that person's personality” I sincerely try to achieve this with every session that I do.
