Partners tell the story:

"Mike has been a great, longtime partner to Microsoft Stores, photographing over 70 events, including 54 store openings.  He is the ultimate professional – photographing real moments of customers engaging with our products and our staff.  He’s everywhere when he’s onsite at our events – he doesn’t miss a moment! His photos truly capture the energy and engagement that occurs in our stores.”
Kelly, General Manager, Worldwide Marketing - Microsoft Retail and Online Stores

"I want to send along a special thanks for your excellent work at the Climate Leadership Conference.
The quality of the images was superior, and your efficiency in posting them and communicating that they were available was extremely helpful to all of us. We were able to post high-quality photos of our speakers and other conference participants in a timely manner, and all the photos we posted received positive engagement on Twitter. In short, your fine work and cooperation made an excellent conference even better for everyone, from organizers, to participants, to people following on social media. Again, please accept our most sincere thanks for an excellent job, and we will look forward to working with you again..."

Marty, Center for Climate and Energy Solutions

"We have hired Mike on multiple occasions to work for the Obama for  America  campaign. Mike is extremely reliable and always produces top  quality  photography no matter the circumstances. He's been extremely  professional in high security situations and regarding confidentiality. I enthusiastically recommend his work!"
Autumn, Fundraising and Strategic Relationship Specialist

"Mike Nakamura is a top notch event photographer, both talented and professional.  His years of experience allow him to know exactly the shots your need with very little direction, especially for fundraising events. Mike is an expert in his field, the photos are excellent – he’s a true pro in the industry.  If you can get him – book him!.”​
Meredith, Tolo Events

"Thank you for the beautiful photos. I keep looking through them and thinking, "Wow" or "Oooooh" or "That's a great shot of Mr. ..." Your images are wonderfully creative. I am amazed at what you were able to do with this kind of event.”
Barb, Stanford University
