Image Library

for Your Organization


The YMCA needs a fresh, yearly image library to use for their marketing, development, social media and web uses. The most efficient way to get do this is in short visits over the summer to each camp throughout the Triangle area and the NC Coast.


We help the Y create a plan of attack, having over 20 years of Y photograph project experience. 
Knowing how to put all the pieces together, ways to get unique compelling images, and to capture the most in the shortest time is critical. 
Our final projects generally include two full days doing camps, using our underwater rig for unique swim shots, and our drone for compelling aerial still and video clips! While several photographers are able to cover many activities happening at once.
