Capturing the Heart of Norfolk

| , ,

Today was our fourth day of shooting for the Downtown Norfolk Council. Our digital team continued to visit a variety of local shops, restaurants and downtown destinations – to capture the essence of the city from fitness to framing. (In the process, we’ve been able to visit some of our ongoing clients (Nusbaum, Grow, and Nauticus.) One of the locations we visited included a stop at Fitness First on Tazewell. Photographer Jessa even managed to fit in a workout.


One of the great parts of working on this project has been the influx of local volunteers eager to represent their hometown and favorite venues. We’ve enlisted a wide array of models, included Cat (pictured below), who enjoyed a chocolate facial during the shooting process at Smooth.

After we got over our massage envy, our photography crew headed across the way to Nest while director Jon Abrahams finally took a minute to rest and grab some lunch. Sometimes the life of the artist means you have to suffer some ground work.

If you’re wondering who our new addition is, meet Grace – our graphic intern for the day. Despite the sad face, she said she enjoyed the experience and hopes to return to help again. Best of luck in your endeavors, Grace!

All of our Downtown Norfolk photos will be compiled into an image gallery for use by the DNC’s new website, launching next year. Be sure to keep an eye out for features of your favorite Norfolk businesses. Goooooooo Norfolk!
