"Michael Khachadoorian is one of the most focused, detail-oriented photographers I've worked with. I had the pleasure of working with Khach for almost 3 years at Converse and have/will continue to hire and work with him. Khach was instrumental in developing the Converse photo studio and the aesthetic that now defines all of our product photography. He was also a huge part of the success of capturing our brand and lifestyle photography. Beyond his undeniable ability , he is one of the finest human beings that I have had the pleasure meeting. Michael will capture magical images and you will enjoy working with him."

"Michael's ability as a photographer doesn't just start and stop at the fact he takes beautiful pictures. It's much more than that. Michael's dedication to a shoot is apparent the minute he gets involved. He believes in collaborating with everyone involved in the shooting process. He is also one of the most knowledgable photographers in this business when it comes to lighting and equipment. And beyond being creatively and technically well-versed, Michael is such a pleasure as a person. His personality wins everyone over, from the talent, to the crew, to the creative. And the best part is, he's genuine. You can't beat that in this business."
