Family Photo on Thanksgiving day? Sure, why not?! I participated with the Uber promotion “Uber Family Photo” on Thanksgiving day. It was a great time to photograph families at home for the holiday. It can be a hard task to gather several family members to have a photo taken. What better time to do so when you have a captive food gathered audience. So Uber contacted local Detroit area photographers to a ride along with drivers to deliver a photographer to take a family photo on Thanksgiving day. On the phone app “PHOTO” was an added slider option to choose. Once selected a driver and photographer would arrive within minutes to capture a great portrait.

My gracious Uber driver, Scott Zimmerman, arrived on time with a great welcoming smile. Scott made the time pass by with great Uber travel stories. Scott also helped carry my gear to and from each of the houses. He kept me on my 15 minute a house schedule by starting a timer on his phone. After the timer would sound he would return to the house asking how everything went while picking up the gear I had packed up. This coordinated operation made the time go flawlessly.

Everyone was extremely kind and welcoming to the service. It was actually a surprise to most of the families that someone ordered a photographer from Uber for a photo on Thanksgiving day. Yet everyone was happy to participate in capturing the holiday spirit. So much so that I was offered to stay and wait for a meal. And there was a beverage offer as well. Yet I did have a scheduled to keep. And with that I snapped a picture with a family members cell photo to post on Instagram with the hash tag “UberFamilyPhoto”.

I would like to send a special thanks to all the families that participated with not only me but as well four other local Detroit photographers and Uber drivers. We were lucky to capture some wonderful memories that will be treasured for a lifetime. And thanks Uber for asking me to participate! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving time with family and friends.

Detroit area models who need a Metro Detroit Photographer

So the SEO say’s UPDATE!!!

It does occur to me that in order to get the word out that I am a photographer available for work in the Metro Detroit area and that I really need to keep an update of the work I have created as well as the personal work and projects that keep my mind busy and creative. With that content is definitely king on the web. With that in mind I plan on grabbing a few pieces of the past and of recent to show a mix of work. I want you as the audience to have your eyes glued to the monitor (for some great SEO time) yet, also to keep in mind that in the near future you will need my ability to not only be your solution but also your recommendation to others.
