Family was the genesis for the start of Mike's photography business - kids have a way of changing lives. Created as an option to daycare, the business allowed Mike to be home with his two children and work at a craft that he loves.
An award-winning photographer, Mike has been hooked on photography since his grandpa gave him his first camera. A high school photo-nerd, he went on to graduate from Ball State University. Although trained as a photojournalist, Mike was led to portraiture and received training under fire by working for a national studio photographing babies in department stores.
After freelancing and photo lab work, big business came knocking and he accepted a liaison position with an Indiana Fortune 500 company where he worked extensively with Kodak concerning quality issues. After more freelance work and a stint with a national studio taking portraits in central Indiana schools, Mike went into business concentrating on portraiture.
What began as an Indianapolis boutique-style portrait business for families and high school seniors has expanded to offer photo restoration and commercial services such as corporate headshots, product photography and aerial photography. Mike considers himself fortunate that his career allows ample family time, is enjoyable and keeps the creative juices flowing.

Commercial. Corporate. Consumer.
Whether you are an individul, small business or corporation, you will receive personalized attention and quality service. All services are offered to everyone and can be customized to meet your needs.
Our commercial offerings help you promote and sell your products, services and enhance your brand. Some examples include product photography, real estate / property photography, aerial photography, and food and drink photography.
Corporate photography helps you establish your identity. Primary examples are business portraits (headshots), images for use in print and web publications and event photography.
Our primary consumer services are high school senior portraits, family life portraits and photo restoration. Of course these categories often overlap. Many companies have used our photo restoration services (to decorate restaurant walls for example) and dentist (along with other professionals) have gifted their clients with our portrait services.
Clients Are Our Focus
Our philosophy is simple - offer great products and superior service. By keeping our focus on our clients, we strive to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
We strive to provide extreme service. It's what we do. We keep our workload manageable so that we can always offer you personalized service and quick turnaround.
Reliability is a very important part of our service. In addition to working with well maintained equipment, Mike shows up on time - which usually means at least 15 minutes early.
Depending on the service, we may offer pickup and delivery. We're normally willing and able to come to you and will meet you in the middle for meetings. Our goal is to make working with us easy, not work. We try to be extremely flexible and will work around your schedule. While walk-ins are not available, appointments can normally be scheduled 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We specialize in on-site photography at your location or anywhere else, but also offer studio sessions in Carmel, Indiana. After nearly 20 years in north Indy I've relocated to Cicero, Indiana. Still, I visit Indianapolis nearly every day. WetDogPhoto and IndyHeadshots serve Indianapolis, Marion County, Cicero, Noblesville, Carmel, Westfield, Hamilton County, central Indiana and beyond.
Quality is our goal. Superior quality is what we strive for. To achieve quality, we use professional gear and equipment and partner with the best professional suppliers and labs available.
Mike is also active with continuing education through Professional Photographers of America and other organizations to stay up to date on the latest technology and trends.
In addition to quality, Mike offers some very important attributes - photographic skill, creativity and artistic ability. These attributes help provide you with images that are both technically sound and visually stimulating.
If you are not completely happy and satisfied with any product or service, let Mike know and we'll make it right. Guaranteed.
Great photography doesn't have to cost too much. Our price points tend to be in the middle - not the cheapest, not the most expensive. We offer value and affordable products and service.
We are budget friendly. Let Mike know if you have a specific budget and we'll work with you. Most pricing, service levels and product offerings can be customized to meet your needs.
WetDogPhoto and IndyHeadshots stay competetive and affordable by keeping our cost and overhead low. Mike has purposely kept the business small, service oriented and home based in order to controll the cost of doing business.
I value family. Family is why I have this business. Cara and Sam have grown up with the business and have been extremely helpfull and supportive by holding reflectors, modeling for meter readings and even assisting on jobs. Cara went with me to business meetings as a baby and the kids used their wagons to help me pass out flyers around the neighborhood.
These days, both kids are busy with school - Cara attends ASU and Sam is at North Central High School. They help when they can and are always a source of inspiration. Both are also really good photographers and enjoy the hobby. I'm a very proud dad
The most recent addition to my family, Sharon, has it in her genes to be helpful and suppportive of a family business. Her parents were local florist so she was raised serving others and providing a helping hand. Sharon helps me in every way, even going through images with me when I have to cut 200 images down to 12. Her opinions are always valued and appreciated. I am a lucky guy.
