Welcome to Michael Paige Photography! You will find I offer a variety of Lifestyle Portrait and Brand Marketing Services. I've honed my artistic outlook towards small business owners and entrepreneurs who are trying to elevate their personal brand through photographic marketing.

You could say each session is truly one of a kind!
I began my photography endeavor years ago shooting primarily landscapes with a Canon AE-1 film camera. Upon moving to Portland, portraiture was added to my repertoire and have worked with a variety of clients such as authors, radio hosts, realtors and financial advisors. My portrait services also extend for families, seniors and elopements too. I believe the power of photography has the strength to change the world, one photograph at a time.

Hi, I'm Paige!
Some may consider me a Midwest native but I knew as a young boy the Pacific Northwest was home. I ventured to Portland in 2013 and soon realized how photography was an essential part of my life and how it gave such a positive impact on those around me. Personally, I view this industry as an investment of art, relationships and nostalgia, and is my purpose to frame each organic moment as its presented. Photography evokes an emotion otherwise forgotten without the evidence of art we create through story-telling imagery. If for some reason I'm not behind the lens, you can usually find me at local eateries, hiking around the Cascades or chasing waterfalls through the Columbia River Gorge. I also like llama's. So theres that...
I have a simple motto I live by - (Create. Capture. Collect.) and heres what it means; As I progress through life, I strive to put myself in a position to create moments, capture memories and collect experiences as I know second chances are never guaranteed. We have to live for the moment.
