What You'll Get
A photographic memory is a blessing and a curse: you can remember everything, but none of it is open to interpretation. Share the burden every camera must carry with today's deal: for $49, you get a 30-minute in-studio photography session, one 11x14 print, and two 5x7 prints (a $335 total value) with Michael’s Photography at his Marietta studio.
Photographer Michael Drewitz opened his studio in 1980, bringing with him a wealth of artistic knowledge amassed during his studies at the University of Memphis. He is a regular photojournalist for the East Cobber and actively involved with several professional photography associations. With today’s Groupon, let Michael put his talents and magical soul-stealing apparatus to use. For 30 minutes, pose, preen, and take direction in front of a camera ($50); model solo, bring the whole family, or make it all about the new baby. Enjoy the fruits of this backbreaking labor in the form of one 11x14 portrait ($175), gallery finished by hand for smoothness, and two retouched 5x7 prints ($55 apiece), glowing slightly with professional panache. The 11x14 and both 5x7 prints must all be the same image. If there are any additional prints you wish to order, you’ll receive an additional 20% off.
While Michael didn't invent the camera, that doesn't mean he won't invent it someday in a parallel universe wherein cameras have yet to be invented. Put his nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having him coax natural smiles out of your newborn, soon-to-be mom, high-school senior, pets, or family. You can also use your session to commemorate the joys of marital engagement or the promise of potential in a post-graduation smile. Besides capturing your soul into an easily portable format, photographic portraiture is a terrific way to reveal your best side in a controlled scenario and ensure that you'll have at least one Facebook photo of yourself in which you're not hoisting a red plastic cup.

About Michael's Photography
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.
