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 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 use my 30+ years of experience to make images that create emotion and motivate people to take action.  I specialize in stylish, sophisticated magazine quality 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.  And I love to do it.  It makes me feel so good I am helping a homeless animal find their forever home.

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

 

      "I cannot recommend Michael Yearout Photography highly enough. He is the complete package- talented, experienced, and professional. In a a world where it is difficult to get people to return phone calls and complete work on time, Michael Yearout is head and shoulders above the rest of the pack. He actually answered the phone when I called and was able to instantly provide me with an accurate quote based on my description of the job. We scheduled two work days- he was on time for both and worked quickly and efficiently. After the initial photography was complete, he delivered BEAUTIFULLY edited images with lightning-fast turnaround. I will definitely be working with Michael again."

      "Micheal did a great job taking photos of my AirBnb. He really captured how light and bright it is, and that was really important to me. We worked together remotely and everything was smooth and easy. I'd highly recommend him!"

                                                         -Erin Nelson

                                                           Airbnb Client

 

        "Mr. Yearout provided us with excellent photos of our home in Breckenridge for posting on a short term rental site. The photographs displayed our home beautifully, and captured the beautiful scenery as well. In fact, the photographs are so good that we have already discussed a second set of photographs for the Summer season. Since the new photographs have been posted, the number of inquiries and the interest in the house has noticeably increased. We highly recommend Michael Yearout for photography not only because of the quality of the work but also because it was a pleasure to work with Michael."

      "Michael has done several photo shoots for my vacation rental business. He is a true professional from initial communications to providing the final images. Michael is reliable and responsive during the scheduling process and he provides fabulous images! I have many older, dated (challenging) properties, and Michael does wonders with lighting and staging to make them look as good as possible. I'm sure the older, less fancy properties are not a photographer's dream job, but Michael handles these with the same care and detail. He also does exterior shots of the buildings and surroundings, including gorgeous mountain view shots. He works independently with little direction, and provides very quick turnaround! I've been extremely happy with every project Michael has done for me and feel that his pricing is quite reasonable. I would highly recommend Michael Yearout Photography to anyone needing professional photography services."

      "Michael Yearout was really wonderful to work with taking my interior design website professional pictures. He has a long list of amazing experience within Summit County all around and knows how to capture the interior of a home just beautifully. I would highly recommend him for your photographing needs and he will make the difference in how many will view your business for future jobs."

 

                                                                             -Interiors Ruhl

 

      "We recently used Michael Yearout to photograph one of the homes that we had just finished building. He was extremely professional and easy to work with. He did an excellent job getting great shots in spaces that were very small with bad lighting. I highly recommend using him for your photography needs."

     "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."
