About Michael T Photography

There are a few pillars that Michael T Photography & Design Inc. is built on – ethical business practices, exceptional customer service, extreme professionalism and transparent and open communications.  These are the very same reasons why we opened this company in the first place.  After working for studios and companies that did little in the way of customer service, had questionable business practices and considered professionalism optional, we knew that the only way to find a company that represented our business beliefs was to start one ourselves.  So we did!  After over 10 years of being in business and countless overjoyed clients who return to us time and time again, we know we got something right.

Viewing our site, you’ll notice that we specialize in a few areas of photography.  The two main sections are commerical photography and what we call “private” photography, or photography that we do for the general public.  On the commercial side of things, our client list includes Toronto Hydro Corporation, University of Toronto, Gay Lea Foods, WYCA, TD Canada Trust and Rogers Communications to name a few. On the private side, we’ve photographed well over 500 weddings, special functions, family, child and baby portraits and a whole basketful of other things, people and places.

Michael T Photography & Design Inc. is a company we’re proud of and we know you’ll see that pride in everything we do.

About the Photographer

Michael Tenaglia is the co-owner of Michael T Photography & Design Inc. and the principle photographer.  He has been in his field  for over 15 years starting when his passion for painting and artful expression  stemmed into the world of photography.  Long before digital photography became the norm, Michael worked with some of Toronto’s best photographers in all the major studios.  Using medium and large format cameras, Michael’s knowledge of photography is truly based in the very fundamentals and science of capturing a photograph.

A world traveller, Michael’s way of capturing unsuspecting people’s naked emotions is a talent that has been fine-tuned after years of observing different cultures.  His calming presence and quiet confidence comes from knowing that every photo he captures will be beautiful no matter what the circumstance or the conditions may be.  His passion for his work comes from the endless pursuit of the most amazing photograph he can capture.  His dedication to his craft comes from the soul of a true artist.

When asked which area of photography he enjoys the most – product, food, fashion, golf, real estate, jewelry, corporate events or weddings – Michael is always left stumped and compares picking one area over the others to picking his favorite camera…a nearly impossible task!  Every area has its challenges, and in them, their successes.

When in need of down time, Michael returns to painting.  The process of taking oil paint and making a memory appear on canvas is his original passion and the fire that lights every aspect of his life.
