What Clients are Saying About MGV Photography

“I have worked with Mike and his team on engineering and construction photoshoots for two separate clients in both Oregon and Washington. The shot lists were complicated and included a mix of environmental portraiture, editorial, architecture and aerials. Moreover, we were working in locations requiring special authorization and equipment. Throughout, Mike communicated effectively with our team, anticipated potential issues and worked hard to capture the best possible footage—whether that meant being on location at 4:00am, re-scheduling due to unfavorable light conditions, or hanging out of a helicopter to get just the right angle. He's a true professional and about as easy a person to work with as you'll find. If he's not on your short list, he should be.”

- Ryan, Principal Partner, Branding Agency

"I've had the opportunity to partner with Mike on several projects over the last few years. We've worked on both photography and videography projects for my company and our clients. Each project has exceeded expectations. Our company has had mixed results partnering with other photographers over the years. Mike's well-rounded skillset, in addition to his talent behind the camera, sets him apart from others in the industry. He makes an effort to fully understand each project and has the experience to understand any potential pitfalls before starting. His on set demeanor is fantastic and it's fun to watch him put people at ease, direct, or change things up on the fly. I look forward to our next project together and would recommend him in an instant to others with photography or videography needs!"

-Sean, Creative Lead, Marketing Firm

“I have had the pleasure of working with Mike on a number of local photo shoots as well as a few we've had to travel for. His professionalism and attention to detail are first rate, and the final product is always impressive. Whether it’s taking photos on active construction sites, 25 stories above the ground, or adhering to the strict photography guidelines of a military base, Mike has an easy-going personality and handles intense situations with finesse. I enjoy working with Mike and his team and always look forward to our next adventure!”

- Devri, Marketing Director, Construction Industry

“I have worked with Mike Vraneza on a wide range of photography and video projects over the past four years. Whether the project was a product troubleshooting video, a product photo session or an on location video shoot, Mike's creativity and professionalism can always be counted on. Mike and his team take an active interest in the products and people they shoot - they are genuinely curious about learning and their love for what they do is apparent. I highly recommend working with Mike for your next photo or video project.”

- Margaret, Vice President - Marketing, In-House Corporate Marketing Dept.

“I worked with Mike to produce several videos for Nike. Mike is the utmost professional - he's timely, organized, personable, thorough, and on top of all that, one heck of a photographer! Mike's also quite diverse in his experience, helping me to produce action-rich video pieces as well as the static single-shot interview video pieces. I highly recommend working with Mike for all your photo and video needs.”

- Dan, Project Manager, Advertising Agency

“I am based in San Francisco, but needed photography of a building in Portland, a city I've never even visited, so I needed someone knowledgeable and professional that I could trust, and that's what I got! He completed the job (ground shots, interiors and aerials) quickly, but took great care to get all the shots I needed, and the photos turned out awesome!”

- Courtney, Marketing Coordinator, Commercial Real Estate Firm

“Mike is a great photographer to work with. He brings great technical and design knowledge to his shoots. A very personable photographer to work with. He made every one from models, to producers and creative team feel comfortable and confident throughout a week of shooting. I would work with him again and recommend him for your next project.”

- Brian, Creative Director, Advertising Agency

"Mike Vraneza photographed several of our west coast architectural projects. Setting up the shoots with him was effortless; he was responsive and communicative. I couldn't have been more pleased with the photographs. Even with subject matter as utilitarian as an aircraft hangar in one case, Mike managed to come up with some stunning shots. I highly recommend Mike Vraneza.”

- Clelia, Senior Marketing Coordinator, Engineering & Architecture Firm

“Mike is an amazing photographer! He did an excellent job capturing a portfolio of photographs for us. We used his images extensively in our re-branding and they really help give some pop to our website. If you're looking for some corporate, industrial, personnel photos - I highly recommend you give Mike a call.”

-Terry, Business Development Manager, Engineering Firm

“I had the pleasure of working with Mike on a labor intensive photo shoot over the course of two days in a variety of locations. Mike's talent, professionalism and dedication were important factors contributing to the success of that project. I look forward to our next project together.”

- David, Producer/Director, Advertising Agency

“Mike and his team have worked on a multitude of projects for us as we expanded our company’s online tools from training videos, installation tutorials as well as photographs. Mike is a professional with the ability to listen to your ideas and requirements and mold everything into a top-notch end product. He's easy to work with and makes it fun!”

- Erik, Vice President - Marketing, Health Care Industry

“I've been working with Mike on photo shoots (still and video) for the past 3 years, and I love both his eye for detail as well as his creative direction and ideas. Mike does excellent work in both controlled situations as well as catching great action video footage and stills. And maybe just as important he is an all around nice guy - makes the work fun!”

- Karen, Marketing Manager, In-House Corporate Marketing Dept

“Mike is a really solid photographer that knows how to help clients achieve the visual aesthetic they are looking for. Additionally, he is a top notch person and a trustworthy business partner. I highly recommend Mike as a photography resource.”

- Brett, COO & CMO, Consumer Goods Manufacturing 

“While working on a wellness campaign for Multnomah County, a colleague referred me to Mike and his team to create, edit and produce a series of short videos about medical consumerism and empowerment. The topic of the videos was meant to personalize, make interesting and simplify complex issues that everyone must face when interacting with insurance, doctors and health care. In all we needed 7 videos (3 long format case studies and 4 short format public service announcements). Oh yeah and we needed them shot, directed, edited and ready to roll out in under two months. Working with Mike and MGV Photography was a truly painless process. They took the hassle and worry out of what could have been a chaotic morass of detail. Better yet they produced beautiful, high-quality video that helped make a dry subject interesting and visually appealing. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants reliable, high-quality video production with fast turnaround.”

- Tanya, CEO, Wellness Management Company

“I worked with Mike on a week-long product shoot and I can't say enough good things about him. Creatively, he brings a great eye and plenty of valuable ideas to the table. His technical skills are dead on and the results were fantastic.”
