For almost ten years, Michael Ford has been providing headshots to actors, kids and business people. Amidst industry ups and downs, changing economic times, changes in technology, the need for a headshot that gets results remains. In fact, with the growth in social media, having a professional headshot is more important than ever. It's this need that Michael Ford Photography consistently meets.
Surrounded by a family of actors, Michael Ford chose to break the mold and go behind the camera. As a photographer and entrepreneur, Michael has, in the last ten years, become a skilled and sought-after photographer able to meet the needs of actors and performers. His experience in the corporate world, prior to becoming a photographer, has given him a unique understanding of the visual communication needs of the business community.
More than anything else, Michael's headshot clients walk out of the shoot saying how much fun they had, which is consistently reflected in the images.
"I have a pretty good idea what agents and casting directors are looking for in a headshot and will do whatever it takes to produce that for my clients," he says from his Vancouver studio. "I also know how important it is to businesspeople that their headshot project a contemporary, yet professional image that reflects their personality and that of their business."
Putting it another way, Michael understands the value of a headshot that gets results.
A native of Vancouver, Michael has a degree in Communications from Simon Fraser University and is a self-taught photographer. Besides photography, his other passions are music, his wife Sarah, and his two kids, Griffin and Grace.
