BIO

My name is Craig Rinzema, and it is my pleasure to introduce myself to you. I've lived in West Michigan my entire life, and it's was the skyline of Grand Rapids that first inspired me to pursue my interest in Architecture. I've always been inspired by buildings which resulted in me obtaining degrees in Architecture and Facility Management. This interest in buildings lead me to naturally want to photograph them when I picked up a camera. After having fun photographing and selling stock photos of buildings online, I realized that this was something I wanted to do as a career. I have since implemented my technical skills and influence from my Architecture and Facility Management background, to help Realtors sell homes and commercial properties. It is my life's mission to professionalize the optimal way to visually represent buildings.

Education

2007-2008

Ivy Tech University

2008-2011

Grand Rapids Community College

2011-2013

Here I studied Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) familiarizing myself with designing and drafting homes and buildings.

Here I studied Architecture Technology in the hopes of transferring to Lawrence Tech University to get my Architectural Degree. Because of the recession, I transferred my focus to Facility Management, which resulted in me transferring the Ferris State University. But I still completed my studies here with an Associate's degree in Architecture Design Technology.

Here I concluded my studies and graduated with a Bachelors in Engineering with a focus on Facility management. I've always been fascinated with the design, construction, and management of buildings. I've now extended that fascination with photographing buildings.
