Welcome to Detroit's People Image Creator Santa Fabio's
This is my belief:
"Beautifully composed and lit photographs are magnificent.
They do more than just record the passage of time, of emotion, of place. They tell the story."
Quality Never Goes Out of Style!
If you are looking for a creative who is fun to work with, and cares about the final image. You have chosen wisely. My clients trust and believe in my abilities to make a great shot.
There are a lot of so called "photographers" out there with cell phones, and cheap plastic DSLR's taking photographs. But, unlike most of them, I am a true professional and not a weekend warrior. I offer my clients dependability, with the state of the art equipment to capture the best images possible.
