In Grand Rapids, the DeVos Family Foundations are some of the largest philanthropic catalysts in the area. They support a wide range of causes from local after school programs to the nationally recognized ArtPrize festival. Documenting and promoting these programs are a large part of what the foundations do on a regular basis. We were contacted by the foundation during the time where new websites and branding were being done across several of the foundations. They were in need of photographs of several of the programs they support. During the discussion, the four programs that were selected for photography were ArtPrize, The Potter's House, West Michigan Aviation Academy and Harrison Park Elementary.
What was scheduled was a full day of photography where we spent a couple of hours at each location and worked with teachers, coaches and students to capture the feeling of their program and how these specific programs continue to impact both individuals and the community.
This type of business photography in Grand Rapids is what we love working on. We were contacted by the foundations who had an idea of what they wanted, but were willing to work with us as we walked them through what we felt we could produce for their image needs.
Know someone in the Grand Rapids business community who needs updated photographs to tell the story of what they do or what they support? Have them contact us today to create a new body of work that will take their visual message to the next level.
Interested in seeing the final use of the images? Visit the Dick & Betsy DeVos Foundation site or the Doug & Maria DeVos Foundation site to look through the images we created for their respective programs.
