When we were contacted by ACG Western Michigan to photograph business portraits for two Grand Rapids based businesses being honor at the 2016 Outstanding Growth Awards, we were very excited for the opportunity. OST, an IT solutions company based in Grand Rapids, was named the 2016 winner for the ACG Outstanding Growth Award. Comfort Research, a furniture design and manufacturing company based in Grand Rapids was a finalist for the 2016 award as well. Knowing the event would have a program, ACG wanted to include photos of both companies with their business profiles. ACG worked with a local writer to create the profiles and then directed us on the type of photos that would work best for the program. The profiles were to highlight the teams of both companies and the people responsible for making their growth happen.
We first coordinated schedules with the CEOs of both companies. We planned on 1 hour of photography on site for each company. 30 minutes to scout locations and setup for portraits and 30 minutes with the subjects we were to photograph.
By scheduling the photo sessions with each company independently, we provided freedom for ACG Western Michigan.
We enjoy capturing the people who are dedicated to their work and who sacrifice so much in order to make their companies a success. We love hearing success stories of so many in the Grand Rapids business community. Our goal is to create images that convey a powerful message and we feel we achieved that for both of these companies.
If you have a business need for professional photographs or just want to capture an important moment in the company's history, we can take care of those needs. Our goal is to help you make the decision to hire us for your photo needs. Following that decision you will have peace of mind knowing we will deliver strong images that convey the message you want to deliver.
We provide freedom for our clients. ACG Western Michigan took advantage of that freedom by having us create strong images for both OST and Comfort Research.
2016 Outstanding Growth Award Winner OST
OST President and CEO Meredith Bronk with her executive team have helped grow OST to $160 million in revenue and 235 employees since it's founding in 1997.
OST is a company built on a strong culture of innovation and collaboration. It was a goal of ACG to share that feeling with viewers.
2016 Outstanding Growth Award Finalist Comfort Research
Matt Jung and Chip George began Comfort Research in their college dorm room in the late 90s after having bruised their tailbones one too many times on less than stellar bean bag chairs.
A dedicated team not only helps them innovate, but deliver comfort in all their products.
