     Stunning images for extraordinary spaces.  That is what I create.  I am specialize in commercial photography - images for VRBO and AirBnb owners, rental management companies, the hospitality industry and real estate. I have a natural ability to compose images - layering the affects of perspective, distance and light to create rich compositions.  Great photography always has had more to do with the photographers talent than the tools he uses.

     I custom design each photo shoot to fit each individuals needs. I believe in strong communication, action, attention to detail and commitment to providing you with the highest quality work to use to augment your marketing materials, secure new clients, win awards and boost your professional image. 

     I invite you to browse my website to see how my photography can help your business.

     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 VRBO and AirBnb owners, rental management companies, 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:


     "Michael does so much more than just take pictures.  He notices the details.  He moves things around and adds props to make each photo an image – a composition that attracts viewers and makes them want to see more.  He has a style that makes his images stand out.  He is a stager – he knows when to move things and where to move them.  He controls the light, not only knowing the best time of day to schedule a photo shoot, but when to supplement the available light with his big toolbox of flashes and modifiers.

     He is my photographer of choice, the only photographer I use.  What more can I say, except that he is a talented, experienced professional in his field.  If he is not too busy shooting my listings, I would recommend you contact him.  You won’t be disappointed.  I know I have never been."

  "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."

Hi Michael,

     "Thank you so much for your hard work, detail, quick turn around time, creative eye and for just being such a pleasure to work with!

I know I can count on you to continue to provide me with totally stunning images and videos no matter how difficult the property is to shoot.  No matter the size or price of the property it’s absolutely worth every penny to me to have you on my side.  And, I will without question recommend you to anyone in need of a truly amazing photographer.

     But remember, he is MY photographer, so you'll have to wait till he finishes shooting my properties!"

     "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."
