Mike is a machine, he's got his nose to the grindstone and it really shows. He's pushing great work out one shot after another along with running a business like a champ. That's why I'm glad to have him as a confidant of mine and a leader in the Headshot Crew community.

About Michael Schacht 

Chicago Headshot Photographer
As a young boy my family nurtured my creative interests. While most of my friends were out playing sports and running around the neighborhood, I was working with watercolor and scribbling with intent in my sketchbooks. Being that I was a young student I was exposed to all forms of art and no matter what the medium, I was always drawn to portraiture. Looking back on it now. Becoming a portrait photographer was almost inevitable. It's the best job in the world and I positively love what I do. I shoot headshots because I enjoy interacting with people on a one on one basis. I care about the success of every single person that walks through the door of my studio, and I feel privileged and honored that they've chosen to work with me. My job is to forge a partnership with my clients and coach them into an expression that will be the backbone of their personal brand identity.  My photography studio is located in Chicago, Illinois and you can find me there just about everyday. When I'm not in the studio, I can be found running around Chicago with my fabulous wife enjoying long walks on the beach and Michelin star winning restaurants.
