Help Scaledown.ca find Windsor photographers!

I am simply re-posting something from Chris Holt’s Scaledown.ca post. He needs some photographers for a project he’s working on, that portrays Windsor in a POSITIVE light. Read below and help if you can!

In a way, I am rewarding Chris by reposting this because he took my advice, and started using the Facebook status to post links to his blog!!

Nice job Chris!

“Calling all Windsor Photographers,

ScaleDown will be partnering with Windsor area BIA’s in a project aimed to promote community pride and celebrate our neighbourhoods in 2009.

With the recent snowfall, attention has been brought to just how beautiful our core communities are – especially layered in that fresh, fluffy snow. In an effort to highlight these communities, we are looking to local photographers to capture the spirit of the neighbourhoods in photographs that we will be reproducing as Holiday Cards for the 2009 Holiday season.

We will be featuring cards with four (4) photos per community. When you are out there in this weekends predicted record snowfall taking your photos, please try and highlight identifiable neighbourhood landmarks and streetscapes and make the images scream neighbourhood pride!

Which neighbourhoods you ask? If it’s got a Business Improvement Association, we’re going to feature it. Here a list of Windsor’s BIA’s (city BIA map);

  • Downtown Windsor BIA
  • Ford City Business District
  • Olde Riverside Town Centre
  • Olde Sandwich Towne Business Association
  • Ottawa Street BIA
  • Pillette Village BIA
  • Via Italia/Erie Street BIA
  • Walkerville BIA
  • Wyandotte Towne Centre BIA

We are still working out the specific details as to how much we will be able to pay for the chosen photographs and layout of the cards, but we wanted to give everyone the heads-up so they can open up some space on those SD cards to capture the best images of our local neighbourhood gems they can. The cards themselves will be printed on 7″ X 5″ card-stock, and we will be noting the location in the city the photo was taken as well as the photographers name. Please supply us with this information along with the photo.

Contact me at chris@scaledown.ca with your submissions or for any additional information. Looking forward to seeing what the incredibly creative folks in Windsor captures to represent what they love about these great neighbourhoods!”

  1. Your Google-Fu is impressive, Mr. Lucier! Who am I to ignore your advice? 😉
