community focused photography


Community focused photography works best when there is consensus among a group to make a shared vision become a reality. 

Photography is an invaluable tool that can assist in visualizing a community’s past, present, and future. It bridges reality and policy to provide a better understanding on how we can make our communities great places to live, work, and play. 

Photography can showcase places of pride in a community and places of opportunity.

The jewel of a community whether it is a memorial, new library, or an urban farm should be shared beyond the perimeters of their spaces. Bringing publicity to positive features in a community allows members of the community to easily identify places that they are proud of. Bringing publicity to places of opportunity in a community can galvanize action to improve the place or re-imagine the place altogether. 

First impressions matter. Make it a positive one.

Many groups do not focus on photography to get their message out to the masses but in today's society, high-quality photographs and media are more important than ever. People develop impressions on an organization or group by the quality of its websites, brochures, and social media postings. High-quality photographs can elevate your organization's message and encourage viewers to further explore your work. Additionally, showing the community utilizing and celebrating investments in their communities can assist communities and organizations to build upon its successes and attract new businesses, community amenities, gathering spaces, etc.
