Grevé Photography and Jones & Thomas Team Up for Decatur

Photographer and communications firm to collaborate on web site

DECATUR, IL—Decatur-based photographer Tonya Grevé and Bill Lehmann, president of
Jones and Thomas Marketing/Communications, are pleased to announce an upcoming web site collaboration. The site, currently underway, will make high-quality photography of Decatur available to businesses and organizations that wish to purchase them for promotional purposes.

Grevé will take all of the photos, and Jones and Thomas subsidiary JTnet, Inc. is building andmaintaining the site. The goal is to create an easy-to-use system to distribute photos of Decatur to audiences nationwide. Because it’s selling stock photos, this site—and Grevé’s photos—has the potential to be seen all over the world, making it an excellent showcase for Decatur.

“Decatur has so many things that I’m looking forward to highlighting visually,” Grevé said. “I just want to capture the positive aspects of the community, something people who have lived here for awhile may have forgotten about.”

“As a marketing agency for a number of Decatur businesses, we understand the value of having great photography on hand,” Lehmann said. “Whether you’re promoting your business or the city, we want this site to be your resource for premier Decatur-related photography. And if other cities see the value and opportunity a site like this has to offer, it’s a service we hope to eventually provide to those communities. Right now though, our focus is on Decatur.”

Lehmann looks forward to working with Grevé. “Tonya not only has an amazing talent; she truly loves Decatur. And that’s something that sets her photos apart,” he said. “Decatur is an awesome city,” Grevé said. “I just want to share my view of it—which I like to call distinctively different—with as many people as possible.”

A Decatur-native and Millikin Universtiry graduate, Grevé launched Grevé Photography and Art Cards in 2008. She photographs everything from family or social events to casual yet creative shots of her surroundings. With the great outdoors as her studio and a camera in her hand, Grevé is ready to capture life as it happens. Learn more about Grevé at
