Your portrait is the most important element of your about me page or social media profile.

Are you also postponing to have your photo taken? Not knowing who to go to? Or not really seeing the point of it? I did and I never liked it. Feeling awkward, nervous sometimes and it was hardly ever a whole lot of fun. And I never thought it was that important. It's about what I do and not how I look, I figured.

Until, about a decade ago, I had my photo taken by a few experienced photographers. With empathy.  They made me feel relaxed, respected me, listened to what I had to say. They cared. Because I felt comfortable, and knowing it would be allright, the images turned out great. Above all, I could immediately use the portraits that helped me propel my own business.

I decided to stop with all other types of photography and put my mind and heart to portraiture. Until that moment of epiphany I did just about everything; from weddings to products, from architecture to sports. I was 'kind of' good, never excellent. Because I never focussed.

That immense feeling of joy and relief was the tipping point. Both the experience and the resulting portrait were beyond my sceptic expectation.

Let me help you make your mark by helping you build your brand.  To help you tell your story. What you have to say matters.

I work with companies like yours and I'm trusted by brands like these..

When I look at this portrait, I see me - really me.

"When I look at this photo, I see me - really me, the way I am". What's the difference with most portraits? Michel managed to create an environment within minutes in which I could be completely myself. I felt comfortably relaxed and I could be vulnerable and show more of my character. And that causes you to look a little bit longer because you suspect there is more behind that face, behind that posture. Of course, it's always like that, but the photographer has to be able to extract it. And that's the hand of Michel Porro. Masterly" Founder  Rockstart

Michel has been preferred supplier for over ten years now. Trust and quality define our relationship. When we ask Michel to take portraits I know beforehand it's going to be more than okay.

Colleagues experience each session as pleasant, probably the reason why the results are always to our satisfaction. They trust him. Strongly recommended  Director Corporate Communications KPN

I cooperate with Michel on a regular basis. He photographs our Arcadis colleagues for intranet, professional social media and important external relations purposes like tenders and magazine publications.

His portraits uit our needs as they are natural, personal and 'playful' corporate. Employees are the gold of the company. They deserve a well lit and executed portrait. Michel has proven he's very good at this. Senior Marketing & Communicatie adviseur Arcadis
