A little about me..


My name is Mike Provencher

You say it like Pro-Von-Shay with the accent on the second syllable.

Our family has recently relocated to the Tyler, Texas area…from Middle TN where we spent eleven years.  Middle TN is a great place and we will miss it, but are enjoying our time in East Texas.

We moved to Middle TN from a little town called Elko, Nevada where my two sons Jacob and Nicholas were born.  We left TN with our third child, our dear sweet Sarah.

I have created Improv Photo to provide an outlet for my creative side. Why Improv?? Well, I was a music major at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where I studied classical and America’s music, JAZZ.

With jazz, you have a theme that is the basis of the song, normally the melody or some chord changes and you can improvise your own melodies over this structure.

Photography is much the same in my opinion. You have a known structure, namely kids, families and individuals, but we’re all a little different and behave a little differently. When I’m photographing two toddlers, or a family with a young baby and a dog, there is a lot of IMPROV going on to capture those special moments, of course within the structure of sound photographic technique.

Bottom line, I love to create images that will be a cherished part of your family for many years to come. I hope that you will contact me so that we may work together to do just that, create some beautiful images.
