Upstate Creative Photography

Event, Portrait, and Custom Photography in the greater Upstate of South Carolina

Hello, I am Michael Scholz, photographer and owner at Upstate Creative  Photography (UCP).  
I have been involved with photography since the early 1980's, starting out with a Voigtländer Vito Automatic hand-me-down from my dad.  Needless to say, things have come a long way since then...

I love to capture natural and organic scenes and situations rather than trying to set up an artificial pose.  
A look at my Portfolio will provide you an overview of my well rounded style and abilities.  

If you like what you see please make sure to connect with me and UCP through Social Media.


Our mission is to create your individual, professionally captured and processed photographic memories - with you in it - that will last for a lifetime. 

When looking through pictures you have taken the past years, sometimes decades, what do you notice?

Everybody is "in the picture", except for YOU !

We would like to change this and make sure to put YOU in the picture!  
May it be your child's birthday party, graduation or ball game, your parents wedding anniversary or neighborhood party, the high school  or family reunion.  We will photograph the event for you.  Portraits, group photos, your family picture for the Christmas card, social events, and team pictures.  The next time you are having a track day with your sports car or motorcycle we can be there and take exceptional pictures of you to capture the action.  You may want some professional images of valuables for insurance purposes or cataloging the inherited collection of coins.  A corporate gathering or photos for your business brochure or web site?

Imagine not having to worry about a thing but
Enjoy yourself and leave the picture taking to us!

UCP will come to your home, place of business or any other agreed upon location, capture your event or situation and provide you with stunning pictures.  We upload all images, as shot or post-processed to a secure site from where you can decide what do do next.  Share your pictures online with family and friends or take advantage of many other options available.  From simply purchasing prints of all sizes and qualities, to ordering merchandise, creating a photo album and more.  Even downloading the original images is possible.

But best of all, you are never obligated to purchase a single picture.

Please Contact Us for information on pricing.  Our rates are very reasonable and flexible to adjust to your particular need.
