In November of 2011, a studio space in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids became home to a photography family. With six photographers and additional support staff, Bird + Bird Studio is able to accommodate last minute requests and fast turnarounds for our clients. Our work doesn’t end after the click of the shutter, we provide post production, retouching and project management services. Whatever is required to make your photographs the best we can. Located within a few hours of Detroit and Chicago, we travel and shoot regularly in both areas. We also have passports, and a network of contacts in Western Europe and Central America, and are always looking to travel and meet new people.
62 Division Ave S
Our studio has a main level entrance with double-door entry, making it easy for deliveries. We have 1,000 square footage of ground level studio space with 15 and 30 foot ceilings, multiple large canvas backdrops, and a classic wood floor. We also have lots of lighting and grip gear and all of the technology trimmings for the digital side of things, including a medium format digital camera and tethering. There is also a beer fridge.
Space and technology make the studio a flexible place to shoot a wide range of portraits and products.
Several hand painted canvas backdrops, lots of paper, and other backdrops make the studio an ideal place for portraits. We host headshot happy hours for clients who want to have a relaxed atmosphere to make portraits. We can do donuts and coffee in the studio too.
For product and tabletop photography we have a wide selection of tabletops, fabrics and paper. Between Amazon and the internet we have almost any prop that money can buy.
We have location production services. This means generators, lights, carts, staging and grip equipment, even a battery powered digital workstation for tethering on location. We can pretty much bring everything but the four walls and the roof of the studio to wherever is required.
