GRC Photo LLC. is a family owned and operated company started in 1987 by Gary and Amy Coppage. At that time Gary was a combat photojournalist for the U.S. Air Force. They started GRC Photo part time doing freelance photo stories for local papers along with advertising and small product photography for nearby merchants. They were able to move the business around the world as the Air Force sent the family on different assignments. While Gary was traveling the world photographing Air Force operations Amy completed her Bachelors Degree in Business Management from the University of La Verne. Together they form the core of GRC.
Gary’s photography has received many awards. The most notable was being selected as the Department of Defense’s Military Photographer of the Year for 1997. His photography (both military and civilian) has been published in books, magazines and newspapers world wide. He is a member of the White House Press Photographers Association, Senate Press Photographers Gallery, and the National Press Photographers Association. He has covered photo assignments from Caption Hill to Tokyo Japan.
