I began my serious study of photography at the University of Kansas and graduated in 1971 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Journalism from the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications at KU.  I also hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from KU.

    I have a passion for photography that began early in my life. I combine respect for photographic fundamentals with a strong work ethic and an embrace of the latest technology. 

     I use my 30+ years of experience to make images that create emotion and motivate people to take action.  I specialize in stylish and sophisticated interior and exterior photography for the hospitality industry, architectural and real estate industries, interior designers, stagers/stylists, commercial spaces and builders.  Commercial photography is my only business.

 

     When not on commercial assignments I donate my time and talent to creating professional portraits of the adoptable animals at the Summit County Animal Shelter.

     What do my clients think of my work?  I'll let them tell you in their own words:

 

     "I'm a decorator, so before and after photos of my work are very important for my portfolio.  I use Michael Yearout Photogrtaphy to photograph all of my work.  Michael is great to work with, always timely, and always a professional.  Michael makes my work look great!  I highly recommend him."

  "Dear Michael:

     "The photos you provided Multiteria have made it possible to add the special material product, installed at the Breckenridge ski Resort foodservice facility, to our marketing materials. We were successful using these photos to develop two (2) new project opportunities at our recent industry show in Orlando, FL."

"The quality of the photos and the unique angles and perspectives of the shots made counters look great."

"The food shield manufacturer used on our counters has used your photos in a national foodservice magazine."

"Please feel free to use me as a reference if I can be of service."

     "In fact, not long ago one of my buyers told me the reason they bought was because of the photos they saw online of my listing. Who took those photos? Michael, of course."

     If you want your listings to get noticed and sell quickly, I would highly recommend you use Michael as your photographer."
