In life, we experience everything once, and when that will happen, we can’t turn back time. Your first birthday, your debut, first award, graduation (from kindergarten, grade school, high school, and college), your engagement and wedding, your first kiss as husband and wife, and so on.

However, there will come a time when we’ll find ourselves trying to remember everything. Of course, we can’t completely remember it by just recalling that specific day; we don’t have a time machine to go back in time to see that day unfold again. But, who said we can’t see that moment again? With a single click of a camera, the photographer can make that single moment last for all eternity. This is why photographers are popular nowadays. Some have even made it their business, their passion, and their calling in life to help people document precious moments.

In a sea of professional photographers, it’s hard to choose who you would put all your trust in to capture the special moments of your life. Mike Sia, one of Cagayan de Oro’s premier professional photographers, sets himself apart by giving his client three reasons to choose him:

  1. Mike knows and understands photography. He understands that having a camera and knowing how to point and click is not the true definition of a photographer.
  2. Mike always finds time to know his clients. He talks to them. He knows the value of a good client-photographer relationship. For Mike, making his clients feel comfortable is important. He wants his clients to trust him.
  3. Mike knows what he is doing. Although he did not have formal photography training, he spent years upon years of learning and training on photography. Constant practice is also a major factor. And he never stops learning and improving his skills. Best of all, he loves what he is doing. Because of these, he can confidently say that he is good at what he does.

Mike sets high standards for himself and follows the “One Shot, One Kill” principle. No matter what the occasion or event may be, he gives his all and tries to take the best shot right the first time. Through practice and by constantly improving his skills, he has perfected this. Thus, his first shots always come out as his best photos.


Passion. This is one of the biggest contributors to Mike’s success. He does not only continuously try to improve his craft; he also takes time to study his subjects He patiently studies angles and makes sure he familiarizes them. He is always prepared. If some people have plans A and B, Mike has plans A to Z. And, if that’s not enough, he can come up with plans A1 to Z10! That is how passionate and prepared he is!

These are the main reasons why people know they have made the right decision when they choose Mike Sia Photography. They know that with someone like Mike, their precious moments captured on camera will endure in their hearts forever.

“My goal is to always come up with such great pictures so that even when it’s already a hundred years from now, the photo will still look beautiful and glamorous, classically elegant and timeless; beautiful photos that last a lifetime. That is what Mike Sia Photography is all about.” ( quoted from http://www.mikesia.com/biography/)
