If you're looking for your next photographer for some professional quality images for your business or modeling portfolio - look no further than Red Archie Studios! The lead photographer - Mr. Kuwan Payne - really helps to make you feel relaxed and comfortable during the experience so that you can get the best quality shots to represent your brand! Did I mention the 6/5 star customer service with super fast communication? Because that's rare in this industry and Red Archie delivers in such a spectacular way!

Working with Kuwan was fantastic. Called for a session and he was at my house the next day (and during the Christmas holiday no less) Spent time getting several great pics for my daughter's acting headshot. Several poses, backdrops, outfits. Had samples to pick from the next day. Prints were fast and the entire job was so much more affordable than anyone else we looked at. Having the shoot at my house was such a convenience. Kuwan was very professional and very quick with communication and a great photographer. The pictures are beautiful. Great experience all around. Will definitely be calling Red Archie for the next batch of headshots and my son's upcoming senior pictures.

Working with Kuwan from Red Archie was amazing. His follow-up throughout the entire process was fantastic and his photos were BEAUTIFUL. He was also very fun and creative (he photographed six teenagers and our dog). We definitely recommend him and will be using him again in the future!

The lead photographer was excellent to work with. He was incredibly flexible, quick to respond, patient with my 1 year old, and took quality photos of our family. Our son is a non-stop mover and I have hardly ever been able to get a picture of him that wasn't blurry, especially with a smile. I cannot believe how awesome our pictures turned out. :)

What an amazing company to work with! Not only was the Red Archie staff very professional and respectful they also very informative and knowledgeable while I was shopping the industry for photographers. This is the best local company I have encountered in quite some time. I highly recommend Red Archie to capture your corporate needs through the lens of the camera.

Kuwan was extremely responsive and great to work with! We had corporate head shots at our office and he came a few weeks before to scout out a good location in the office, came with an assistant the day of and stuck to all the appointment times and finished on time. He even came back for someone that couldn't make it the day of the shoot. He spent individual time with each person to ensure they felt comfortable which translated to their pictures. To top it all off, he finished editing our photos within days! I highly recommend Red Archie Photography for your next event!

I scheduled senior photos at the end of the summer with Red Archie and it was a great experience! They worked with me on scheduling, and were able to split it up over two days, and one shoot was even the day after I called! The pictures were amazing! Red Archie was very timely throughout the whole process and I had access to the photos very soon after.

I would definitely recommend!

Red Archie was a life saver. I needed headshots for my acting agency pronto and they had them shot and edited and sent to me by that night. Their turnaround is insanely quick, I was quite impressed. Even my agent said that the shots were amazing. If you're looking for good work and quickly, Red Archie are your people.

I could not have asked for a better experience than the one I had with Red Archie photography.

I was already impressed with Red Archie from the first phone conversation to set up the appointment to get my son’s senior pictures done, there was an emphasis put on working with my schedule and trying to make this as painless as possible for my family. On the day of our photo shoot Kuwan showed up well prepared and on time (Probably the first company I have had in years to show up on time). Kuwan from Red Archie photography was a very pleasant person who paid attention to what we were trying to accomplish and seemed to have an eye for the details of each photo. The photos turned out amazing and I cannot say enough about Red Archie photography! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to have professional photos done from a truly talented professional!

Kuwan at Red Archie was very professional, punctual, and took pride in his work. I am pretty busy during the week and needed the shoot done over the weekend. This was not an issue for Kuwan, as he was flexible and willing to work with me. The photos turned out great, so I give my full recommendation if you're looking for professional headshot photos.

Mr. Kuwan Payne from Red Archie studios is truly a breath of fresh air within a rather stale industry. I was extremely pleased with the quality of my shots as a model - but even more infatuated with the unparalleled responsiveness that Mr. Kuwan Payne gives to his clients. If you're looking for your next photographer for any event - look no further than Red Archie studios! Thank you for the wonderful services and I cannot wait to work with you again in the future!

I highly recommend Red Archie Photography and Kuwan! I used them for my baby shower this past weekend and it was such an easy process! From the booking to the day of, everything went perfectly! Kuwan is super friendly, professional and quick, he was able to get my photos back to me within 3 days! Thanks again for such a great service!

In one word: excellent!
I Didn’t have to worry about location.
Kuwan recommended a great spot that complemented the looks I needed for my acting head shots. Great customer service! I felt encouraged to be my best/real self in front of the lens. Kuwan made sure that all my needs and concerns were met throughout, before, and after the session. Again, excellent.

Red Archie Q&A

Red Archie Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

We base photography off of 4 key elements.
1. Lighting - Every great photographer must know how to manipulate lighting to their advantage. Great lighting is the single most important thing in photography. This is the separation from professionals and amateurs.
2. Posing & Gestures - This comes up #2 on the list. A shot with a bad background and great pose, is much better than good background and bad pose.
3. Composition - Composition is the difference between a good shot and a dynamic shot! Composition, is certainly key to photography.
4. Background/ Location - You can always get away with location last. If you follow the first 3 rules to you make any location look like a million dollar shot!

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

1. What is the process that the photographer plans to follow. If your photographer cannot give you a detail outline as to steps for their
plan you should look further.
2. Do you have a studio or is everything on location? Having the options and flexibility is key. Many amateur photographers only shoot outdoors.
So it is a best practice to always ask.
3. What is the editing process like? This can vary from photographer to photographer. Ask them what is it that is included with their editing. Ex. retouching... But what exactly in retouching is included.

What do you love most about your job?

We love capturing images, and being able to display them in an art form. Photography is such a great form of art, and we love
every aspect, and detail of the creative process.

Why should our clients choose you?

We have been recognized a Michigan premiere photography company. Servicing thousands of customers, and providing exceptional
world class service.
