A Heartfelt Shoutout to TeamBay!

Updated: Feb 7



It’s not news that the last year and a half has been a monumental challenge for everyone, and we’re extending our utmost appreciation for the people who have kept Bay Photo running through it all. Read on and browse the photos to learn more about the amazing job TeamBay has been doing throughout the most pivotal time for our company and much of the world.

 

Last year when the pandemic hit, we put our manufacturing prowess to work on producing PPE products to help keep the community safe. The professional photography industry felt the impact, and TeamBay went above and beyond to support customers and continue producing your orders within that challenging environment.



A few months after the first lockdown of March 2020, we were faced with a mandatory evacuation order due to a nearby wildfire, and not only did it shut us down for a week, many of our team members were forced to evacuate their homes. When we reopened we went into overdrive, working 24/7 to make up for lost time. The holidays were soon upon us, and we found ourselves navigating a strong and busy season fraught with challenges previously unheard of in modern times.



“Pandemic and fires, nothing like a little lightning fire to ruin a perfectly good pandemic... The last year and a half has, by far, been the most challenging of our 45 year history. The Bay Photo Team stepped up at all levels to fight back and overcome these obstacles in legendary fashion.”
- Larry Abitbol, President


Fast forward to today and we are still pushing through in a changing world while continuing to build strength. In the words of our Print Production Supervisor, Chris, TeamBay has been “resilient, hardworking, and unified in the goal of keeping Bay Photo going.” Co-Supervisor, Maria adds, “We wouldn’t be able to do it without their support, the effort shown, and the dedication that they put into their work everyday.”



Due to supply shortages, shipping delays, and a limited workforce, businesses all over the globe have had to shift approaches and pivot new strategies. As your partner in photography, we understand the importance of delivering excellent quality work to your clients in a timely manner. Our Support Team has done an exceptional job remaining the trusty source of knowledge and problem-solving reliability that our customers can count on. Our Customer Service Manager, Tiffanie shares her perspective:



“The last year has tested us all but I am so proud of my team and for what we have accomplished. Not only have we learned an entirely new way to work together as a team, we have also supported each other through one of the most difficult times in our lives. I am so lucky to know and work with every single one of them.”
- Tiffanie M., Customer Service Manager
