If you've ever been a part of an engineering meeting, or sat amongst a group of IT professionals, you may have noticed a trend. A large number of people in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) fields tend to be men. Efforts are being made on many levels to bring more women on board, and it's starting as early as elementary school.
June is national Women in Technology month and just like last year, I spoke with a number of women in high profile STEM positions who had some very interesting insight into being the minority in their role. The article was picked up by MiTechNews, which was a perfect outlet, considering the subject. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Women in Tech :: Grow. Learn. Succeed.
"In an industry of constant change and evolution, Amanda Regnerus has at times found herself lacking the confidence that she would be able to make the change or learn at the pace that was needed to keep up with the IT industry. Her admission to those fears may come as a surprise, considering Regnerus is the Vice President of Marketing at US Signal Company, a global technology enterprise." + Continue reading the entire article.

What a way to make a livin'....
Only in our case it was more like photographing 9 to 5, which is the latest selection at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre.
Just like each of their other shows this season, we got to photograph the promotional piece, which is the photograph that gets put on their posters, advertisements, on social media, and anywhere else they want to promote the show. The promotional shots are some of our favorite work that we do for the theatre because we can really have some fun with things. You may remember Sherlock Holmes and Les Miserables were some great pieces that we got to photograph this season.
The theatre had some fun with our photograph on their Facebook page.
The show runs from May 30 through June 15. If you're thinking about getting tickets, you'll want to act fast. I just went online to get ours and seats are going quickly. This is going to be such a fun show!
We recently talked about how we had the opportunity to photograph the promotional shots for the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre's upcoming show, Les Miserables. Now the initial dress rehearsal has come and gone and the show is in full swing.
When we stopped by to shoot the rehearsal we were blown away by the amount of great shots up for grabs.
Not only did we get to see the show from behind the lens, but we also got to see it as an audience member, off the clock. Both experiences offered a completely different point of view, and I must admit, we were not disappointed. In fact, we've been shooting for the Civic Theatre for 3 years now and Matt said this was the best show he's seen there. The costumes, sets, and musical numbers were just superb! We truly have some incredible talent in the west Michigan area.
My Experience Grand Rapids used one of our shots when they featured the show on their Spring Arts Preview post.
eightWest did a recent interview with a few of the cast members and they used some of our images to accompany the story. They did a fantastic job showcasing all the work that goes on behind the scenes of a production this large. The show runs through March 30, but it is selling out quickly.
