First Responders Project

we cov­er Durham’s finest for the Durham Cham­ber of Com­merce

If you appreciate what our first responders do for Durham, you’ll enjoy our project documenting them for the Durham Chamber.

It was a ter­rif­ic week, meet­ing all of the men and women on the front lines keep­ing us safe. We pho­tographed every­thing from our Emer­gency Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Cen­ter (911), the Sheriff’s Depart­ment and EMS.

The Cham­ber par­tic­u­lar­ly want­ed to give respect to depart­ments of all sizes, so we were out in Lebanon and Bahama with their fire depart­ments, and had the joy to pho­to­graph the Duke Police team in front of Duke Chapel.

We were par­tic­u­lar­ly sur­prised how loose every­one was with us… goof­ing around, tak­ing self­ies, etc. When that bell rings, they are all busi­ness, but it was great see­ing the reg­u­lar day to day side of these folks as well.

Anoth­er great aspect of the project is that we then shared all the images with the depart­ments, so they have access to some unique, pro­fes­sion­al shots to show off what they do each day.
