WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU
Our Event Center has played host to some incredible events since opening in November of 2012. It features an HD projector, 10′ screen, and sitting room for up to 40 people. Whether you need a space for a casual meet-up, a presentation, or a short film festival, let us take the headache out of booking a location. Use of the Event Center is free for qualifying community partners.
Photo classes can be a great way to expand your audience and reach people directly, in person, to better share the message of your organization. In 2014, we partnered with Outdoor Project and Base Camp Brewing to present an outdoor photography class to the public, free of charge. Thanks to the combined marketing efforts of our three companies, we were able to reach a wider audience than what we could have done on our own. By working together, we provided a unique experience to attendees, as well.
Whatever role photography plays in your organization, we are here to support you with equipment and services. Our Rental Department features a full compliment still and video cameras, lenses, lighting and grip equipment. Our Photo Lab offers high-quality printing options to meet your needs, from simple 4×6″ photo prints to inkjet printing up to 60″ wide.
Community Profile Videos
To date, we have produced nine Community Profile videos for our partner organizations—completely free of charge. Video is a great medium for putting a human face on your organization to tell your story and reach a broader audience. We promote all Community Profile videos through our various online channels and also make them available for embedding on your own website, social media, or email newsletter.
Let’s work together.

The partnership with Pro Photo Supply has been phenomenal. It allows us to print more photos of kids, and showcase them in more locations.
Photography and video is essential to what we do. It’s the way we take people to these remote places without them having to get there on their own. We’re lucky to have Pro Photo Supply helping us put on our photo contest every year.
To start from scratch and photograph 50,000 objects to digitize the museum’s collection is a long-term project, and Pro Photo Supply has helped us with that in terms of equipment and setup.
