Architecture and Commercial Photography


I'm an Edmonton based photographer specializing in Architecture, Interior, and Commercial photography. I provide select clients with website development and search engine optimization services. I'm also obsessed with all things comedy.

Growing up between Edmonton and Calgary Alberta, I studied Commerce at the University of Alberta before founding Plaid Interactive as a web development company. In 2014 while building a website for a local architect, I took the opportunity to photograph a few commercial buildings to improve the website’s aesthetic. I was instantly hooked and shifted the primary focus of Plaid to architecture and interior photography. Since then, I have completed hundreds of successful photography and marketing contracts.

A balance of technical skill and creativity is required to create each picture. Natural and artificial lighting, composition, technical settings, time of day, and countless other factors are constantly being tested and improved. Ideal clients are looking to create and maintain a visual representation of their brand. My background allows me to offer not only photography but also SEO, website, and marketing services.

Douglas Sollows Architect Inc.

My company is based in Toronto with digital billboard locations across Canada in major markets, having to find a reputable photographer remotely can sometimes be a challenge. From the first contact, Michael was prompt, professional and excited about the work, something that I valued incredibly. Having previously owned a photographer representation agency, I have very high expectations and a specific eye as to what I am looking for in a photograph. Michael’s work was impeccable and he delivered exactly what I was looking for and more! I would highly recommend his services.
