"We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give"
The fabric of a successful community is woven by the actions of caring individuals who strive to positively impact the lives of their neighbors. From the public works employee filling potholes and salting icy roads, to the middle school student organizing coat drives for the less fortunate, to the firefighter risking personal safety to help strangers in desperate need, there are countless individuals in our city who give their talent, time, love, and ideas to creating a stronger community and a better future for all of us.
Local Focus is an Anthem Photography portrait collection showcasing these incredible individuals and organizations. The goal is to further strengthen our community by telling the stories of the great people who are dedicated to positivity, progress, and making Blue Springs the wonderful place that it is.
If you contribute to the community of Blue Springs, I want to tell your story.
How does it work?
Each feature will include an environmental portrait, taken in a unique location that highlights your job, skills, or service, and a selection of responses to a short set of standard questions (linked below). Participation will require approximately 30-45 minutes of your time for the photo session, permission to shoot at the desired location, and approval to publicize images and responses submitted with your questionnaire.
Features will be posted online, shared on social media, and possibly displayed in local art galleries or at Blue Springs businesses.
The more participants I have, the stronger the project will be! Anyone is welcomed to submit a participant questionnaire (below), so feel free to share this website with individuals who positively impact our community.
