Why Waterhouse Photography?

How often do you hear that all that is required to take good photographs is a good camera?  That is like all you need to make a good meal is an expensive oven!  Technology will do the rest.  There is though a lot more to what it takes to create timeless works of art and great memories that in essence stop time.  It requires a detailed knowledge of the photographic profession and a keen artistic eye and presence. At Waterhouse Photography, we have invested time, money and hard work in learning these skills and setting up a reputable business line. We are so committed to our work that we have our own photo studio in downtown Auburn Hills Michigan. In creating your art, we invest considerable time in assessing light, assessing the dynamics of the moment and assessing the environment and you. Our technical know-how of camera and equipment required substantial investment in time, professional education and money.  Our dedication to our art and desire to excel requires us to understand the fundamentals of posing and light, the rules, when to break the rules and the boldness and confidence to create something timeless and unique. Our chosen settings, environment, lighting and moods all create the interpretation of our vision and your ultimate work of art.

Even more important to us is connecting with you. It is our motivation to take a photo that counts. You are the most important element in any photo shoot. If you are willing to give, we are able to take exceptional photographs.  Important to us is connecting with and involving you in the whole process. It is not only about a photograph – but also about an exceptional photographic experience with you at the center

Choosing us is a luxury experience compared to cookie cutter chain experiences. It is the luxury of great service, better creative choices, and superb heirloom end products.  It requires budgeting and an allotment of time.  It requires a level of commitment, investment in time and money and planning by you and even more so for us the photographers.  We invest a great deal of time in creating high-end personalized sessions and art for you.

The strength of our personalized service lies in the choices and the luxury of options we offer. We want our time together to be amazing. Your final images are the result of us caring. With us quality and commitment are not lost in this corporate age of mass produced and mass marketed. After all – our name stands behind our business


Ten Days to Photograph a Group of 15!

No not really – It did not take ten days. But we bet your were thinking “I cannot believe it”.  And you were absolutely correct. Let’s explain. You all know what it is like photographing your family or friends in a group of 4. Someone is always looking the wrong way. Someone always does not like themselves on the final image. Try as you may. Try photographing a group of 15 of all ages! Ah! This is where the illustrative ten days come into effect.  We create the best image with a composite shot of the group. So how does that work? Lights, positioning of yourselves and camera are all set up and  measured, photographed and documented. This allows us to set the equipment up in exactly the same place every time. Important so that the perspectives and lighting are always the same. We then photograph  smaller groups. Each group can immediately look at a series of photographs of themselves and identify the image “they just love”. We do the same with the other groups as well. All of these best images are then assembled into that one fabulous group shot – where everyone loves themselves – their smiles, their pose, their looks. Someone not there on that day – yes we know what it is like scheduling a large group – no problem. They come in later, get their images taken and “voila” appear on the group photo. This is designed to capture the best images of yourselves and take the stress out of scheduling. So – no excuses any more. Book your own session and get that group shot.

2011 Tree Lighting in Downtown Auburn Hills Michigan with Waterhouse Photography

December 2nd, 2011 and another perfect photo night for Waterhouse Photography in downtown Auburn Hills Michigan – the home of Waterhouse Photography’s full service studio! Clear skies, holiday lights, magnificent tree,  Mr. and Mrs. Claus and hundreds of Auburnites  – all wrapped in a wonder festive atmosphere warmed by an open fire. Once again, a well-organized annual event thanks to the city. Mr. and Mrs. Claus  arrived  on time  thanks to the Auburn Hills fire brigade. Our 6th term mayor James McDonald  opened the event, culminating with a round of  applause as he announced the timing of the ground breaking ceremony for the newly planned downtown multi-storey building. Songs were sung, hands were warmed and cheeks were flushed. It was a fabulous event for Waterhouse Photography to capture – dragged shutter, fish eye lens and flash photography. Followed by complementary photographs with Santa by Waterhouse Photography in a warmly decorated historical building. The Waterhouse Photography photo session was a resounding success. 100 photos were planned but 250 were handed out!
