    Kc Jacoby Photography LLC says:

    "Spike's photography is a very true portrait of what he is as a person. A friendly, caring, and passionate soul. He's able to capture a moment in time that might trigger back a thought or a sensation that you might have experienced if you were right there. His photos give us a glimpse into what makes him one of the most unique people I know. I honestly can't say enough about how great of a person he is... keep the photos rocking!"

    "Spikes real passion always seems to shine through despite his ever busy life, but he manages to put his all into his photography and ends up producing some remarkable images. Sprinkled with a shot of humor, his photostream quickly becomes a fun and inspirational place to visit. His travels afford him the opportunity to photograph scenes that I never will, making me envious to no ends. Plus, his generosity to others makes him a true saint. Many times I've had to ask for advice on something and he was always willing to help out a hack like me. His selfless promotion of individuals and organizations have motivated many others to give back to their communities. All with a unique flair and style that says 'Spike!'. This plus the fact that he's the biggest goofball I know makes him a riot to hangout with.
    Which makes it really hard to imagine that he's a radio guy...."

    "O.k. ... my turn.
    What to say first about this amazing man. Met him through the Exposure.Detroit group and was blown away by his warmth and friendliness for a person of his celebrity status.
    Check out the variety of AMAZING pictures in his photostream. Anywhere from a beautiful flower, to an abandoned building, to a sweet smiling little girl ... they are all fabulous.


    The one thing that impressed me most about this man is his love of family. His girls are obviously the loves of his life. It is apparent in the photos he lakes of them in just their everyday lives. From dance class to coloring easter eggs, I love to see what they are up to now.

    Keep taking those fantastic photos Spike. But most of all ... just keep being the wonderful Daddy that you are !"

    "I was drawn to Spike's photos long before I learned about his "real" job. Having had the chance to meet him and shoot photos with him on several occasions has been a great experience; he's funny, respectful and a good buddy. His portfolio varies from art shots to simple documentary-type photos of Detroit, life and his daughters.

    As a person, one would expect a local media celebrity like him to be arrogant (enter your preferred adjective here about show biz people) but he is, surprisingly, a truly nice and simple guy.

    The only bone I have to pick with Spike is that he doesn't invite me when he does certain photo sessions... ;)"

    "I recently had the pleasure of meeting Spike on an Exposure.Detroit safari, after following his work for some time on Flickr. First and foremost, t's clear just how his energy and passion show through in his portfolio of work, which spans from sports to artistic shots to beautiful moments in the lives of his children. In addition to Spike's own strong body of work, he continuously contributes feedback to others including myself, which helps us grow and improve as well. When I look through his portfolio, I admire how he approaches his subjects, and he is a photographer whose work I continue to learn from."

    "Spike's photography inspires me... plain and simple. It is his photos of the ordinary- the chair by the water, rain drops or even his daughters being silly that remind me that the most ordinary thing can be ten times more beautiful than the extraordinary.

    And that is all that needs to be said."

    "Spikes photostream is a journey though life, emotion and color. He has the amazing ability to capture energy in the simplest aspects of life - from the smile of a child to the desolation of an abandon building.

    I am honored to have Spike as a flickr contact. Seeing his work makes me strive to become a better photographer."

    "I recently had the opportunity to meet Spike during a social gathering in downtown Detroit that involved a photography project. It was obvious to me that he had as great of a passion for photography as myself...and that says a lot! Through his radio work, I've known of him for quite some time and am now glad to say that I know HIM, the individual. I had come across his work through the internet and was impressed with what I saw. Great photographers are hard to find, and when I saw that he was a local, it was definitely thrilling. As we got in contact with one another, I noticed his enthusiasm for photography and really appreciated the way he shared his love for it. I can certainly say from our brief encounter that he is a blast to be around with. And, I look forward to working with him again in the future.

    - Joe Alisa"

    "Artistic, skillful and creative are what come to my mind everytime I look at Skike's work. His lighting technique is superb no matter if it's used in portraiture, modeling or still life. Words just can't describe the beauty of Spike's photos. You have to see them and experience how his magical lighting techniques make his photographic subjects become alive."

    "I've only met Spike once. His photos were on the wall, and the place was filled with his adoring fans. Having already followed his work on Flickr, however, I wasn't too surprised: a guy with his eye for the image is going to draw attention--in the good sense. You go, Spike!"

    His photographs take you on a journey through the city and people of Detroit, showing the beauty and reality of the urban life."

    "I had the pleasure to meet Spike in 2006 and found a daily inspired photographer that truly loves what he is doing.

    He knows what makes a historic photograph and at the same time isn't afraid to show a subject in a light that's new to all eyes.

    Spike is an inspiration to me, and another reason to get out and capture life as it is, and I'd like to thank him now! Thanks Spike!

    "Ok, here goes... About spike, although I have never met him in person, he is the reason I started on flickr. I heard that he was having a show downtown that i was unable to attend, but a friend sent me the link to his flickr page. Ok I knew that spike was a creative person because he kills me with laughter every morning on the radio, but "WOW" he definatly has the eye for photography, his images are beautiful and very artistic, I love his black & whites. So to Spike, Thanks for the inspiration, and for leading me to flickr. I look forward to veiwing more of your images in the future... Sincerly, Toni a.k.a. photoqueen1234"

    "Lesson 1: Spike is not who you think he is.
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Oh sure, he loves the fun. He loves the booze. He loves his celebrity status. YOU WOULD, TOO.
    Spike is, however, a wonderful husband and, by far, one of the best Daddies I've ever known. Look at the way he frames his children. Take a closer look at the looks ***they give him***. There's a lotta love in that room. I've had the great pleasure of being around his family quite extensively, and there aren't too many people I'm prouder to call 'friends' than Spike and his family. They are compassionate and generous beyond words.

    Lesson 2: He's just scratching the surface.
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Mrs. Spike must've been drunk on the couch.

    Spikey got himself a new body. He got new glass. These facts, of course, don't mean anything, really. However, you will get to see the rebirth of a REAL photographic eye. I've seen the man's film work (of which he is slowly sharing with you now). I know how intensely creative this man is. Just wait until you see what he does with this new camera. I can't wait to do some weekend photo excursions with him.

    Ok, kids: school's out. You now have the background with which to fully enjoy Spike's work (and please don't throw your caps -- you'll put an eye out!)"
