Michael Drewitz's eyes are in high demand. Since opening his studio in 1980, the award-winning photographer has been booked to inspire other expert shutterbugs, speaking at engagements for the Northwest Georgia Professional Photographers Association and the Tennessee Professional Photographers Association. His flair with a lens has also nabbed him a job from former Georgia Governor Roy Barnes—Michael snapped stills of the politician's daughter inside the governor's mansion. His reputation for sophisticated shots stems in part from his time at the University of Memphis, where he studied art. Today, this training enables him to both plan and retouch images with creative cleverness.
Michael's wedding shoots combine formal and more casual poses, and his corporate portraits frame subjects against dignified backgrounds, such as bookcases or a conference room where even the table is wearing a tie. He also preserves images of family groups and children, from infancy to high-school graduation. With a variety of portrait finishes, he can imbue his creations with the look of a renaissance oil painting, adding an ethereal or classic ambiance through practiced brushstrokes.
