Hi, guys!
I need a photographer in Detroit to make a picture in Grosse Pointe Park. I need this picture for the magazine (in good quality, RAW) so we will pay for it.
Can anyone help me? Or can you recommend somebody?
Thanks in advance!

Jumpstart... [22 Jul 2009|03:12pm]

Well I see that people are posting sparingly in here but thought I might maybe jump start with some photos I took with my cell at Comerica Park on Saturday for the Kid Rock concert. Excuse that they are not the best, couldn't sneak my Nikon in there obviously.

Photographers are needed a.s.a.p. for Wayne State's student-run newspaper, The South End. [04 Nov 2008|07:24pm]

faithful_chasm
Here's how it works: I send out a group email to all of the hired photographers of weekly assignments. The assignments are usually Wednesday-Saturday events in downtown Detroit that range form WSU sports events to art hangings at the MOCAD, and sometimes documenting politicians.

The assignments are first come - first serve, so you have to check your email daily, if not twice daily to stay in the running. I will not discriminate based on image quality, because if you shoot a lot, you will get better on your own. I just want to know who really WANTS the assignments, who has a hunger for photography.

I encourage creativity, experimentation, and breaking the rules.

The job does not pay, but provides clippings for future jobs, and plenty of useful journalism experience. I will provide every photographer with a copy of the issue they shot for upon request.

You do not have to be a Wayne State student to apply. This is a perfect job for anyone of any age who wants to update their portfolio, or mingle about in Detroit.

Please contact Amanda Faye Cain with availability, image samples, or questions.

Hi there. Just popping in to share a picture I took Friday at the Detroit Zoo. It's not anywhere near as good as most of these, but it's cute and cool . . .

Cross posted, Budd Wheel. [29 Apr 2008|09:36pm]

fruit2o
I grew up two blocks from Budd Wheel (now ThyssenKrupp Budd) My great grandfather built the place, my grandfather worked on the assembly line. When Budd shut the gates, the company I worked for bought the contents and I cleaned Budd for auction and took apart the presses. When I was cleaning Budd out, I took a lot of stuff, I found a stack of pictures someone took and left. So here they are:

Enjoy.

picture help [06 Apr 2008|02:59pm]

unappropriate
i'm hoping someone in this community could help me. in 1968 or 69, my parents bought this house in palmer woods:

Photobucket

they sold it and moved to birmingham in 1975, only two years before i was born (and yes, i'm still a little bitter that i never got to live there), and this is the only picture i have of it, and it's only half the house (it extends, as i recall, further to the left). i would do this myself, but i live in boston, and rarely get back to michigan - would anyone be willing to take a drive by and snap a photo of the full front and send it to me (bloonic at yahoo dot come)? it's easy enough to find - it's on wellesley drive, the second block off woodward, on the right. it doesn't even need to be great lighting or anything - just a picture of the house.

i know this sounds a little shady, "oh, someone go take a picture of this random house for me", but i swear there's nothing sinister at play - i'm compiling a gallery of the various homes my family have lived in over the years (and between the standard up-and-down-grades, plus divorces, remarrying, children, etc, there have been a lot), and this plus one other that my grandparents lived in, but is in a gated community behind the bloomfield hills library that i can't get into anymore (since, you know, they don't live there anymore), are the only two i'm missing.

and google streetview hasn't covered palmer woods yet.

thank you so so much in advance.

my new blog [12 Mar 2008|12:03pm]

"And You thought that urban decay was bad!" Thats the tagline of this blog and it fits quite well. As people move farther and farther away from the big cities in search of whatever it may be, sprawl is choking the life out of once thriving metro area's. Nothing could be more true of the The Detroit Area which is especially dense with over 50 suburbs surronding Detroit makeing what many from here refer to as "The Metro area". Older suburbs closer to Detroit are facing hard times as people spread out to newer ones and the business sectors follow.
In this blog, I will visit malls and large shopping plazas in the burbs of detroit that have been hit hard by sprawl. What happened to make it get this bad? Is there anything being done revitalize? What can be done in the future? I hope to bring fourth fond memories, make people think, and adress some very serious problems.
