Scott took chaos (family photo with dog and 2 kids under 6) and turned it into some of the best family portraits we have ever received. He is also very quick in getting the photos back to you for viewing. More...

This photographer finds intriguing ways to add visual interest to his photography. Definitely not 'just another picture'. Very creative and innovative . I like his style and will continue to follow his work! More...

Creative and innovative. Excellent on the technical side, too. He saved a shot someone took of my daughter and me. We looked great but there were about 100 things wrong with the rest of the photo. Scott took the shot and revamped it into the best shot ever. I know enough about photography to know how tough that is. In addition - he probably took the best photo of me this decade!! More...

Excellent work! We have not had a family picture done in 13 years, so were clueless. He worked with us and got great shots of not only us, but even our son's dog! He did some traditional shots and some very cool shots! Great work and we will be using him for Senior Pictures! More...

Scott and I worked together at the same company for more than three years, and I worked with him recently to update my professional photos. Scott made the entire process simple. He scouted the location for the photo shoot, arrived at the location early to scout the perfect areas to capture the photos, and then put me at ease for the duration of the photo shoot. I was highly pleased with my photos. Scott is the consummate professional and based on my personal experience, I highly recommend his services. More...

I recently had Scott Ritchie of The Machine Photography photograph my 2017 Corvette Grand sport. Not only is Scott a great photographer but he is also an avid auto enthusiast. Having these attributes resulted in some incredible photos of my car. I’m very pleased with the results and strongly recommend him for professional photography. More...

I worked with Scott for more than four years and highly recommend him. Scott's friendly, calm demeanor puts everyone at ease. Having worked with many professional phtogrpahers over the years in publishing, Scott is among the very best. He can shoot it all, doesn't limit himself to one particular type of photography -- and he does it all well. He's a genuine person who is genuinely passionate about photography. More...

We recently hired Scott to take photos of an old
building and the new windows installed in the building. Not a terribly dynamic or compelling assignment. What we received were dynamic and compelling photos. Scott's photos definitely brought to life our story about this historic building and its windows. More...

Q&As

Planning. Pure and simple. Working with my client to fully understand their needs and ensuring they know exactly how I will meet them.

1) What do you need to be photographed? 2) When do you need to have the shots taken? 3) Where do they need to be shot? 4) How many different shots are needed? 5) Is retouching necessary? 6) How soon are the final images needed after the shoot? 7) How will the images be used?

Looking through the final images after a shoot is complete to see how I've exceeded my client's expectations.

I worked as an art director and brand manager for a Fortune 125 company for over 20 years. During my tenure in those roles, I was responsible for commissioning many types of photography. I worked with many great photographers and was able to learn the trade under their expert guidance. A couple of years ago, I purchased my own equipment, retired from my corporate job and started The Machine Photography. I can now select the projects I want to work on and focus on delivering the best possible images for my clients.

Throughout my career, various mentors and clients have referred to me as, "the machine," as a reflection of my work ethic. From planning to execution to delivery, I focus on every aspect of a shoot to ensure my clients know exactly what they can expect at every step. I strive to not only provide top quality images but ensure that my customers have a great experience throughout the project.
