Welcome to Michael Norris Photography. I am a staff-photojournalist with the Amarillo Globe-News. I am also a freelance and contract photographer specializing in sports, event, wedding, journalism, and portrait photography. I have been published in multiple newspapers, Sports Illustrated, Country Woman Magazine, Army Times, and many online agencies around the world.
**2011 UPDATE - I've gotta get paid. TF shoots are okay from time to time but i've done too many and they cut into the paying work that is essential for me to further my business. I am cutting back to one TF shoot a month and it is booked on a first come first serve bases (and usually booked several months out). The bottom line is i'm a good photographer and if you want the type of shots I can add to your portfolio I'm going to have to charge you. I am kind in my pricing for all of the broke MM'ers out there but I put a lot of time and effort into the shots that you receive so I do have to charge for them.
All shoot fees INCLUDE 4-6 edited, hi-quality web images that you get to use for your portfolio!!! I am a published photographer with over ten years of experience.
Due to high demand for my services, my current turn around time from shoot to final edited images is approximately 2-3 weeks. I take a high level of pride in my work and want to provide all my clients with a quality product we can both be proud of. For this reason I will not rush the editing stage. Please understand it takes time to edit images to the quality you should want for your portfolio. I hate to turn potential clients away that want to book me, so this is the result thanks for your understanding and appreciation!
This isn't a dating site, if you want to shoot with me just ask. I'm not here for games and unprofessional behavior, we are all adults I hope. Don't be afraid to call and discuss shoot ideas with me either, sometimes that's a lot easier than emailing back and forth a hundred times.
CONFIRMATION POLICY FOR PHOTO SHOOTS: I will not show up to a shoot unless I have communicated with you by phone (voice/text) the day before AND the morning of the shoot. Please make yourself available to accommodate and I will be happy to return the respect and diligence so the collaborative process runs smoothly!
