As Canadians we've been known to define ourselves by who we aren't. So let's get that out of the way before we let you know who we are at Carey Management Philanthropy Photos. We are not a for-profit website, and our raison d'être is simple.
We're about discovery, appreciation and the realization that, while Canada is often downright cold, being warm, friendly and Canadian is, to our mind, as cool as it gets. In our growing collection of photography, we focus on minutiae and majesty, those everyday and exceptional moments that describe who we are both as individuals and as a nation.
Carey Management's Philanthropy Photos is proud to provide, at cost, a beautiful selection of prints to clients, suppliers, teammates, communities, schools, nonprofit organizations and foundations for charitable, fundraising purposes. But we also want individuals to enjoy these unique images that capture our national character, and ask that, in addition to covering the cost of the print, a small donation to any charity be made when ordering a print for oneself or as a gift. Honour system applies!
Our history is short, but instructive. In January 2012, Frank Carey proposed making available some of the original images photographed while on assignment for The Carey Management Group of Companies. We decided to move ahead cautiously and floated a digital trial balloon: a plain-Jane website with a blog sent to about four hundred friends. The enthusiastic response came as a welcome surprise. Orders were accompanied by helpful suggestions on how to improve the website. Just 10 months later we are significantly broadening our reach and implementing these recommendations.
We would be remiss if we didn't thank web developer Mike Hayes who is responsible for the look and innovative features incorporated in our site. Using Mike's accomplished coding, images are sized to fit a broad range of devices, even displaying at the highest resolutions afforded by the next generation of computer monitors.
With Christmas just around the corner, we are making a concerted effort to have prints immediately available for all of our featured photographs. Please browse our ever-changing gallery of images and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or would like to place an order.
Wishing you all the best for the Holiday Season and the New Year,
