I am an award winning commercial, architectural and real estate photographer based in Breckenridge, Colorado. I began my study of photography at the University of Kansas and graduated in 1971 with a B.S. in Journalism from the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications at KU.

I have a passion for photography that began early in my life. I have a natural ability to compose images that create the emotion needed to drive your customers to take action. As Zig Ziglar said a long time ago, "Logic makes people think. Emotion makes people act." It still holds true today.

I use my 30+ years of experience to create images that motivate people.

Here are a few comments from some of my clients:


"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."


Steve Cox, Affordable Decors LLC




"Michael Yearout Photography has done photo shoots of our model homes and in clients homes for our funiture store.  He provides a totally professional experience in his work and customer service, and is dedicated to producing a product that satisfies our needs."


Heidi Jarski, Mountain Comfort Furniture and Design




"Michael Yearout Photography provides a great service for our business.  His eye and ability to focus on the details are top notch."


David Preasus, Creative Cabinetry Corp.



"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."

David Hancock
VP - Sales


"I have Michael shoot every one of my listings, no matter how small or large. He provides me with stunning images and quick turn-around time. He is easy to work with and a top professional in his field."

"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."

"Michael Yearout is a consummate professional. His photographs capture the best aspects of every property and his commitment to service is unparalleled. He has photographed all of our luxury homes and condos, as well as the properties of our real estate customers. In every case we have been thrilled with the product."

"Bernie and I highly recommend Michael for all of your photographic needs."

Dee and Bernie


"Michael Yearout is an incredible real estate photographer. Michael's work shows the property in its best light whether he is shooting a video or still photographs. He is able to shoot a room beautifully while also showing the view from the windows. Both my clients and I are very happy with Michael's results. His photographs make for a dramatic brochure."

I utilize Michael's services for all my listings from one bedroom condos to multi-acre estates."
