“Experience pays off. Steve brings a creative eye and communicates well with everyone on a project. He knows how to make you look good with clients while remaining firm on quality issues. His book shows it. It pays to pay for experience.”

 

“Steve is the consummate professional, with little instruction I feel confident that Steve will deliver every time. I have worked along side Steve and have also hired him to do location and studio work for my clients he has delivered each occasion and impressed our clients which reflects positively back on TDI Print Graphics, Terry Dunham”

 

“I have worked with Steve for close to 15 years on many projects and he has always exceeded expectations. He is the consumate professional who listens to the needs of his clients (even when they aren't sure what they want) and works it out until you get a phenominal product. He has always been a fantastic person to work with, always driving toward what the client wants but not afraid to make a professional recommendation when he believes it is warranted. Steve has a wonderful ability to quickly grasp what you want a shot to convey and an uncanny talent to deliver it. I would unconditionally recommend working with Steve and McHugh, Ltd.”

 

“Steve is an extremely talented and hard working photographer. I have worked with him for over 15 years on dozens of projects with multiple clients. He is a master with lighting techniques whether it is lighting something as big as a semi-truck or as small as a cornflake. As an Art Director, I always know my project is in good hands with McHugh.”

 

“It's hard to choose only three attributes that reflect Steve and his work. The Minnesota Opera has been extremely pleased with the images that Steve has shot for us. His work is extremely high-value and constantly elicits positive responses for us. His images play an important part in representing our brand and our productions. And, on a personal level, we all love working with Steve! (The hot chocolate chip cookies don't hurt...) I am thrilled to recommend Steve.”

 

“Beyond the obvious ability to be able to create with the camera, added to the ability to manage a large national campaign is Steve's ability to solve creative problems and to extract the most out of any situation. The results are way beyond stunning...they are magic. Sensing how to sell a product, Steve is a Creative Director's eyes, ears nose and throat. I have shot with Steve on location and in the studio. Both experiences have contributed to my "fame & fortune" in many ways. I love to work with Steve on location because he has the ability to think on his feet, be flexible and above all listen while looking for the next shot. This is not something you learn. You either have it or you don't. Steve's creative approach is a part of his inner being. He has it. On top of all of this (and I could go on and on and on) Steve is really FUN to work with. What more could you ask for. I personally recommend Steve for your next photography project. Take a "Steve Pill" and call him in the morning......it will relieve your stress instantly!!!”

 

“Steve has been the photographer for several Minnesota Opera projects where I have been the designer/art director. He is a true delight to work with. His easy-going style puts clients and models at ease. He prepares before the shoot to make sure every detail is right, draws together a great team for the day of the shoot, and creates beautiful images. On budget. On time. And an enjoyable collaborator. I highly recommend Steve.”

 

“Steve was the photographer for two of our company magazines. We used him for both location photography across the country, as well as studio and in-house portraits. His many years of experience allow him to provide expert advice for capturing the quality photograph we needed. Steve has a knack for putting customers at ease and can capture a good sense of their personality. Many shots were "by the cuff" during meetings and activities and Steve found ways to find interesting details of individuals and groups that complemented the story well. I have received many positive comments on the quality of his photography throughout the magazine from both internal staff and our customers. Steve was an easy travel companion, with a high work ethic and sense of integrity. Vigilant to my limited budget, Steve provided outstanding photography at a reasonable cost. I highly recommend Steve and would definitely hire him again.”

 

“Steve McHugh is a skilled, experienced photographer with a strong team of related professionals. He can provide turnkey photography services, from scheduling shoots to making sure everyone's hair and makeup is just right. His photos were impressive and helped my organization distinguish itself visually in a crowded marketplace. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone.”

 

“I have had the pleasure of working with Steve for 16 years. His work speaks for it self, as to the pro that he is on every job his calm precise demeanor lens not only confidence to his abilities but a reassurance that you as the client are not only in good hands but your expectations will be surpassed with the end product. I look forward to many years of collaborating together.”

 

“Whether your looking for the perfect cover photo or a full portfolio, McHugh Images may be the best option. I had the pleasure of being photographed by Steve McHugh, and based on that experience, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for commercial photography. He has vast experience, he is extremely creative and made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely be calling him again!”

 

“The consistent quality of Steve's work is indicative of his ability to connect with both the people he is working with and for. In my experience he is particularly skilled at drawing out the best in non-models. These skills extend to dealing with all the layers of staff involved in every project.”

 

“"I had the unique experience of representing Steve's photography work for many years during the 1990's. He has an eye for capturing people and places that few others can achieve. Definitely a pro. Art directors liked working with him and he was always on the lookout for new and unique shooting experiences. While I worked with many other photographers at that time, his is the work that I best liked to sell. He was easy to work with and the studio always had a fun atmosphere. I have a lot of great stories and memories from those years and we are still very good friends. If you are looking for a photographer that can think outside the box -- look no further than McHugh to do your job and give you MORE than you even thought you were looking for!"
