Laura Bishop


Founder & Creative Director

Laura, a.k.a. Laurie, has over 20 years of design experience. Previously a Creative Manager for the Gannett News Media Group, Laurie has also spent 15 years as an adjunct professor of Graphic Design. She launched Locale Media in 2009 and has never looked back. What a lovely way to burn. 

Brian Bishop


Brian is our in-house traditional fine artist. He is a professor of fine art and resident artist at Lansing Community College. His work can be seen nationally and locally. As a painter, and all around fine art mogul, he brings the understated elegance to Locale Media with style and sophistication.

Jim Oakwood


Jim, our self proclaimed impresario, began snapping pics back when basement darkrooms, film developing and old fashioned slides were a thing. Negatives? He's got 'em. But his love for raw photography and detailed perfection gives Locale it's edge.
