Next Door Photos—Lakeshore empowers realtors, business owners and home builders with digital visual marketing solutions (photos, videos, 3-D models, aerials, floor plans, etc.) so they can get back to doing what they do best: running businesses and buying/selling houses. We have local, fully-trained visual media professionals stationed all along the West Michigan Lakeshore from St Joseph to Manistee which allows for quick lead times (same day or next day) and next day delivery.


We are a gospel-minded organization that thinks people are more important than profits. As a locally-owned company, we care deeply about West Michigan and making it a better place to live and work. We belong to the Mason Oceana Manistee Board of Realtors, West Michigan Lakeshore Association of Realtors, Southwest Michigan Association of Realtors, Lakeshore Home Builders Association, and the National Association of Home Builders. Know of a ministry/non-profit/cause that could benefit from our donated products? Please let us know as we are always looking for ways to invest in our community.


We offer the most comprehensive suite of visual media products in the industry. We know how important it is to stay fresh on technology and offer you the best products for your listings.  Ask us about the cool things we are working on and the future of real estate visual media!
