Why I click

Hello! Yes – I’m a photographer too!

I really enjoy working with people and organizations to capture the beauty and spirit of a moment, a person or an idea. I’m humbled to so often be entrusted to record and witness the proclamations of a prime minister or the visions of a CEO or the graduation of a student from their first degree; the performance of a classical music superstars or a violinist’s first concerto; the event an organization has worked on for the past 6 months, or that headshot someone needed to help win their dream job; the first days of a newborn, the joining of two families in marriage, or the last record of a life well lived; the gathering of thousands or the gathering of just that one. I get to be there for all of it, and it certainly is a buzz when they say: “that’s it! that’s the one!” or “this is me!”

So how can I help you?

The special moments are usually special because they don’t happen twice. I’m here so that those who have seen cannot forget, and those who haven’t can know.
My work focuses chiefly on event and concert photography, headshots and portraits, and helping artists develop images for their portfolio. If you have been looking through this site already, most of the artwork is my own, though to give you an idea of my work I have created an online portfolio which can be found below.

WHAT THE CLIENTS SAY

 “Michael Grebla was very professional and I love how my portraits turned out, I used them for all my professional work as well as for profile photos on social media! The photos reflect the warmth and professionalism I want to portray in my work and in my applications for competitive programs. Working with him it is very clear that he has a lot of experience and a great artistic eye.”

“Through his photography Michael contributed enormously to the College. The combination of his aesthetic awareness, technical precision, and perseverance made for images that were meaningful and nuanced. They were an important aspect of our College promotion through magazines, our website and promotional materials.”

“I required a photographer to create content for my website who was sympathetic to the understanding of how a piano technician interacts with the instrument and who could capture the synergy between art and craft. Where most photographs capturing piano tuners/technicians were often mechanical and uninspired, Michael Grebla caught my attention with his beautiful images and his unique eye for capturing people in a creative yet honest way. While Michael’s photographs on my website are now several years old, I don’t see them ever dating. His care and detail to the subject that he is photographing and his patient and thorough editing is the reason why I would, without hesitation, recommend his photography services.”
