Hello All, I am Mike!

The true image is captured when people are being themselves while allowing the ability to share the memorable story through our captured work of art of Photography and Videography.

I've been shooting headshots, portraits and events professionally for over 14yrs and recently ventured into the Real-Estate and videography/drone realm to expand my portfolio. I used to shoot weddings in my past but decided being the best "second shooter" is my sweet spot but have ventured into wedding videography.

As part of my volunteering by giving back, I am the floor production manager for Zion Hill Baptist Church media ministry, backup videographer for the media ministry, video content creator for the youth and children ministry and church wide services, and a member of the photography ministry. I've also mentored kids who made photography their project assignment in high school and kids with autism who see photography as a favorite.

As a photographer, I've worked as the Corporate Partner Marketing photographer for 7yrs with the Atlanta Falcons, currently going on 12yrs for the Black College Football Hall of Fame, 3rd year with TechBridge Non-Profit Organization and venturing in collaboration with the American Cancer Society. I've worked as second shooter for well known photographers such as Mike Moreland with Moreland Photography, Lou Freeman Photography, Tracey Brown Photography, and I've shot for one of the largest High School Marching Bands "Pebblebrook Mighty Marching Machine -M3"

As a passionate photographer and videographer, I'd love the opportunity to help you capture those memorable moments that will be shared generation after generation.


“Michael has always been my first choice as a second photographer shooting with me for weddings and events for many years. I have no worries when he is shooting with me because I know he will capture the images and moments needed at high quality. I also have full confidence in him shooting any part of an event or in full without me being there. He is great at shooting available light, with flash, off camera lighting or studio lighting.”

“Mike Newman did an amazing job at my baby gender reveal back in October of 2019. He showed up early to take pictures of intricate details that I didn’t even think of and didn’t leave until all the shots that I personally wanted were taken. He took the time to make sure every photo had a small bit of meaning and love in each one. He is so personable, kind, and just an all around great guy to work with. All of my photos turned out perfect and I will have photo memories for a lifetime! Thank you so much Mike”

“When I think about Photography, I think of Mike Newman of Shane Michael Photography. Mike has been our go to guy for shooting numerous important events for many years - Birthdays, Weddings, Paparazzi shoots, and my father's Memorial Bridge Dedication Ceremony. Mike delivers high quality shots and videos for all occasions with NO complaints, whatsoever. If you have an important event, and you want the BEST Photographer to capture those precious moments, call on Shane Michael Photography”

“We’d never done a video project like the one we did with Michael "This Land is your Land". There were so many things we didn’t have (and needed), but Michael made the entire video project work with the limited resources we had. He was patient, extremely knowledgeable, and worked with us to get the shots we needed to make our project great. Fast turn around times on all edits and extremely communicative.”

“Mike is an excellent photographer. He has done work for me and my family throughout the years and he never disappoints. Always early to assignments, well prepared, patient and professional. Great ideas and a master of his craft, taking beautiful family portraits and capturing memorable moments at celebratory events.
Mike, Thank you so much for delivering excellent service time and time again. We appreciate you and look forward to working with you on future events.”

“It was my 40th Birthday celebration and although I knew he was there, I barely remember seeing him that night! After seeing the photos, it was as if he was everywhere at the same time, but not at all intrusive. The photos were so great, that it has been almost two months and I am still trying to narrow down my favorites to print.”
