City of Toledo photography should match the tone of the brand and feel human, friendly, responsible, and honest. Photos should feature the culture,
people, and landscape of the City. In addition, photography should
celebrate the positive impact the City is making in the community,
region, and lives of residents.
Be sure to include diversity in race, age, gender, religion,
and background to reflect the City's community. Whenever possible, the photos should use lots of natural
light. The photography subject matter should always be in a natural
environment. For example, portraits should be captured in City of Toledo
neighborhoods and spaces, as opposed to staged in a studio.
All photos should be full color or blue and teal duotone
images — no grayscale, sepia, or other color effects. Examples of
acceptable color images can be found throughout this guide.
