My name is Mike Pfeffer and I am a photographer from the southwest side of Chicago. Photography has always been a passion of mine and I started as many others shooting landscapes and wild life. I slowly evolved into shooting people after I attended a few workshops presented by Art Ketchum (when he was still in Chicago).I started here in 2008 and been slowly growing into the fashion/glamour world. Along my Journey I have met some wonderful people here and all the sessions I have had to date were both fun and laid back.
My wife and I always work as a team for each shoot as I value her help in working with the models as well as her creative insight. Another contributing force behind some of my work is the wonderful collaboration with Insatiable Creations and Vaughn the Chameleon. Each session we strive each to reach that next plateau. I enjoy working with people and look forward to making new acquaintances here.
Feel free to contact me if you would like to collaborate on a project together.
Now, there are a few simple rules that I have and do follow thru on.
1) Once contact with me has been made thru messaging, I always reply and leave two phone numbers that I may be contacted by. I will not engage in a multiple email conversersation with you. That is a waste of my time as well as yours, and since I may or may not know you, my time is too valuable to be wasted....period. If you leave me a number, I will get back to you.
2) I do not accept text messaging as a means of communication. Another waste of time. I have so many thoughts on which I can write a book, suffice to say that if I do not allow my daughter to text me, then the same goes to you.
I only communicate via a phone call....that's it.
3) After we agree upon place and time for a shoot, if by chance some unfortunate problem occurs ( 50% chance that it does) and you are unable to make the session, I would appreciate a phone call at least 4 hours before the session is to begin. Do not send me an email the day of....or try and text me. Phone call only. I treat everyone with professional courtesy and I do expect the same. Should you not show and there were no previous attempts by phone to cancel, then there is no need to further communicate with me. I will not out you in public, but if some other party asks in reference to you, I will be honest.
The people that I have worked with thru here have been wonderful. I hope to have the same experience with future professionals.
I try to continuously learn new things, and I try to help others who are just starting out as well. That's why we are all here....right?
From me to you, have a wonderful day and God Bless.
