About 360 Photo & Design

welcome to our corner of the interwebs

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
Ansel Adams

Who we are

We are commercial photographers in Lansing Michigan. Compelling and purposeful imagery is at the core of our business. A picture is even more of an impact if it can be interactive, so we specialize in premium DSLR 360 degree virtual tours. And to get our virtual tours in front of as many people as possible, we are certified as Google Street View Trusted photographers. You can use Google Street View to get more customers in your front door. Let us help you with that!

How we got here

In 2012 we were looking to get a bit more freedom to pursue our real passion, which is volunteer work. Adam was working as a Creative Director for a tech company and Amber was doing merchandising work. While we enjoyed those jobs, it made it difficult to leave when new opportunities to help people would come up. So we started looking for something that could support us and give us more freedom. 

The Call from Google

One day we were surfing the art/media/design section of Craigslist and we came across a post from Google. Even back in 2012 it was odd that Google was using Craigslist to post job openings. The post was for a new thing called Google Business View. They were looking to train and certify photographers to take Google Street View inside of businesses. Not knowing if it was a scam or not, we responded to the ad and about a day later we got a call from Mountain View California, the headquarters of Google.

Google Trusted Photographers

With a bit of training and testing we both passed our exams and were certified as Google Trusted Photographers. In the beginning, Amber would do cold calls on local businesses during the day and then we would both photograph them in the evening. For those who don’t know, 360 is women-owned and operated. Amber was the one who got things off the ground. While Adam now takes the lead on sales, Amber is hard at work behind the scenes to keep us going.

The big day arrives

After lots of hard work building the business, Adam quit his day job on his 30th birthday. Amber followed suit soon thereafter, but we won’t say how old she was :-). In the beginning we focused mainly on the Google virtual tours, but now we’ve expanded to include all sorts of commercial photography services.

Happy clients

Our work can be seen on the websites of hundreds of happy clients including Michigan State University, DTN Management, the Eyde Company, the Gillespie Group, and the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau, to name just a few.

Nice things people have said about us

The people of 360

This is us

“If you don't know who you truly are, you'll never know what you really want.”
Roy T. Bennett

Amber Suiter

Photog/Office Manager

Hello there, I’m Amber. Since purchasing my first SLR in high school, photography has been a constant hobby for me. Starting 360 Photo & Design let us turn that hobby into a career. While Adam specializes in our virtual tours, I handle a lot of our still imagery. Even when I don’t have a camera in my hands, its funny how often I catch myself framing a photo in my minds eye. It’s like I’m always looking at life through the lens of a camera

Adam Suiter

Photog/Graphic Designer

Hi there. I’m Adam. For as long as I can remember I’ve had a camera nearby. But I didn’t consider myself a professional photographer until 2012 when I quit my day job as a Creative Director. Having spent 15+ years working in the creative field has given me a eye for design in my photos. I love the technical aspects of photography and would be happy to nerd out about camera gear if you are inclined that way. 🙂
