PhotoCorps was established to celebrate and advance intentional photography—one of our most powerful tools for communication & expression.

 

The first component is a collaborative project called PhotoScouting. This program encourages individuals to demonstrate photographic principles, explore neighborhoods and connect with others while creating meaningful photographs. 

A PhotoScouting Guidebook organizes these tasks in three categories: Photography, Neighborhood and People. Participants earn patches by completing tasks in each category. 

Choice submissions are collected in a printed edition. The First Edition is out now and Neighborhood Editions are happening for Price Hill, Madisonville and Walnut Hills over the summer of 2017. Check out each neighborhood link to learn about upcoming events and details for submissions!

 

Who’s Behind This?

My name is Chris Glass and folks know me for different things. Some know me as a designer, with projects under my belt that include websites for many local arts organizations, album covers, a Mother tattoo, a map of my neighborhood or the Recovery emblem for the Obama administration.

Others know me as the guy that prints and sells t-shirts like “Made in Ohio.”

Some follow my photography. I’ve kept a photo journal for over 10 years and have gotten a few gigs taking portraits of rock bands and famous internet cats.

So I make things. It all falls under the umbrella of creativity and I find there’s never an end of new avenues to explore, express and enjoy.

In early 2016 I was awarded the Haile Fellowship by People’s Liberty. This presented an opportunity to explore my greatest passion: Photography.
