Let’s Show Detroit in a Better Light
Even though it’s America’s great comeback city, Detroit doesn’t always get shown in the best light — and we’d like to do something about that. As contributors to major image libraries sourced by international newsrooms, blogs, and advertisers, we have some influence in how Detroit might be portrayed by the media.
This summer we want to celebrate the positive growth happening in Detroit by spotlighting young entrepreneurs and creatives. Freelancers and startups are flocking to the Motor City to grow their businesses in record numbers, and we’re eager to help these men and women shape the media’s perception of what it looks like to be a modern-day success story in Detroit.

What We’re Looking For
Are you a freelancer, entrepreneur, or artist working in Detroit, Michigan? Do you have access to a great co-working space or creative studio in the Motor City? We want to work with you.
What You’ll Get
We’ll schedule a day to come photograph you and your team at work in Detroit. Your images will be edited and delivered to you as high-res JPGs via DropBox within 2-3 weeks. You’re free to use them to promote yourself, your work, and your workspace. Check out a recent entrepreneur shoot we produced in Cape Town.
What It Costs
Nothing. Zip. Nada. We work on a trade basis that makes everyone happy: You get awesome free photos for your website and social media, we get cool commercial images to license to our clients. Those licensing fees pay for the cost of the shoot. It’s win-win.
What We Require
Anyone who appears in our photos must sign an industry-standard model release and property release to allow us to license the images to advertisers. Your images could be used in product and service advertising, blogs, or news stories anywhere in the world. Here are some examples of our work in action.
Book Your Shoot
Drop us a line to get in touch with a local producer to schedule your shoot. We’ll be shooting in Detroit through the end of September 2017.
