"Mike is by far one of the most talented and professional photographers I have ever worked with. I had so much fun shooting with him and his studio is definitely amazing! He's so easy to talk to, and will try any idea you might have. He has also helped me with many other aspects of modeling and brought out my best in every picture. I highly recommend Mike and KNOW that you will find the shoot equally impressive!

"Mike is one of the most professional and exceptional photographers I have ever worked with.
He is extremely creative and strives for perfection with every concept. He's always willing to try something new and take on the model's ideas as well as his own.
Even after shooting, Mike has helped me through other aspects of my modeling career. I can always call or e-mail him with any questions I have concerning agencies or work opportunities or any concepts that I think up.
I highly recommend shooting with Mike Trobee!

"I had only been modeling for maybe 2 months when I met Mike Trobee. He had emailed me and asked if I wanted to do a shoot. Of course I said yes, but I told him I wanted to bring someone along to make me feel more comfortable. He encourages this idea for the simple fact he wants you as a model to be as comfortable as possible- you can read emotion in a picture. He made me feel so comfortable and at ease when taking pictures and just being around him. He did our family pictures for Christmas and made them come out wonderful and my family was so happy. He's just an amazing photographer, and I would recommend him before anyone else."

"Going to my very first photo shoot, I did not know what to expect. Nervousness, anxious, excited, all this was going through my mind on the way to Memphis, to my very first shoot. As I got out of the car when I arrived to 554 Green Tree Cove, I was greeted by Mike Trobee himself. The very first words out of his mouth were, "Hi, I'm Mike Trobee, let me help you with your bags". At that moment, all the jitter bugs, all the questions left me. I knew that this was going to be the craziest, most exciting day of my life. After eight hours, I had experienced so much. My favorite was the Hot Lights. I loved doing those pictures. Posing, but then getting as still as you possibly could; the fan blowing your hair and outfit, wherever the wind touched, that spot would be blurry. I thought that was so cool. When I got my pictures back, my hair is strawberry blonde, so it looked like I had an odd color of fire coming from the back of my head. There were so many outfit changes, I can't even remember them all. Mike made everything perfect, from the background changes, whether it was black, gray, white, or Italy, the list goes on, we also went to a pond. Mike also was very picky with the lights. I guess that is a given when you are an excellent photographer. If there was a shadow, he would fix it. If there was light on my face that wasn't supposed to be there, he would fix it. Whether he was taking head shoots or full body shoots, it was obvious to me that Mike knew exactly what he was doing. Mike is not bossy and lets you do what you want to do. He is very serious about his work but has fun while he does it. Driving three and a half hours was defiantly worth it for me.

"Mike is a wonderful photographer to work with for so many different reasons! To start, he is very nice so I was comfortable with him immediately! He is also extremely professional. He also took the time to explain lighting to me so that as a model I could make our shoot even better! I had mentioned some features of mine that I was particularly happy about and he showed me different ways to work the camera to get what I wanted. Not only did I get what I wanted from the shoot, but my expectations were far exceeded. I would reccomend Mike as a photographer to anyone!

"Heather shot with Mike in November of 2005. We drove the 4 hours up to
Mike's studio located on the outskirts of Memphis. It was certainly worth
the drive. Mike has a wonderful place to shoot studio shots and is very
close to a cute downtown area. He made us feel so welcomed because he is
just a nice guy. He loves what he does and shows in his work. Something
that is very important to us is that he listens to what the model needs for
her book. We wish you the best Mike in all you do!"
