The Maker Movement

Makers can be defined as anyone that makes things. While its roots are tech-related, the maker movement has morphed into home grown do-it-yourselfers. From jewelry makers to pickling fruits and vegetables, bee keeping, composting and growing your own food. For some it’s hobby-related, but for many, they could end up making great products and selling them online.

Photographers Trinette + Chris have been wanting to focus on maker type subjects for some time, small businesses and the combination of the two.”We feel there is a movement of consumers wanting to support more local small businesses and makers rather than big box corporate stores and this fit in perfectly with that movement. We ourselves are a small business and in essence makers of photo and video content and we feel this subject matter aligns with what we do as well”.

The following set of images highlight this movement in their own creative way.64
