Maria Michael, Owner & photographer
Maria Michael is a qualified, award-winning professional photographer. She is also a member of The Society Of Photographers. One of the largest photographic societies in the world.
Maria is not only a businesswoman but a mother and a wife. She also shares her life with her dog Wilson, and She knows all too well how powerful photography can be.
“Photography enables us to preserve snippets of time, memories and important details. Whether it is the colour of someone’s eyes or the way they smile. Photography can preserve those details, ensuring we can treasure them long into the future”.
Maria had a passion for both photography and animals since she was a young child. The gift of her first film SLR camera only served to fuel this further. Yet it was not until long after Maria had established her family and successful social work career, that the hand of fate would guide her into Professional Photography.
This was the beginning of something quite unique and the creation of Detheo Photography.
“I wanted my company to maintain the same values that I held for every part of my life – honesty, reliability, individuality and a sense of self. I have never aspired to fit any mould in life and I did not want my business to either. Rather than try to replicate what had already been done, I decided to create a service that was truly unique. To create not only stunning photography but images that held a special, deeper meaning for our clients. Images they had an emotional connection to”.
