Dallas Photographer Kimberly Wylie and BWC Photo Imaging teamed up to donate fine art photography and multiple Photographic Art Master Pieces valued at $50,000 to the ABC hit TV Show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” The episode will air on ABC at 7pm CST on March 15, 2009.
According to the Extreme Makeover Team, this episode is one of the first to feature the personal touch of the family portrait through out every room of the home. Photographs are regularly in a family home but never to this extent.
Wylie, a PPA member, photographed the Ruiz family and then worked with the BWC team to convert the images into art masterpieces for the home decor. Her talent is clearly demonstrated in the Ruiz Family portraits. She captured the heart and soul of the family group, as well as each member individually.
According to Danielle “Lou” George, President of BWC Photo Imaging, no one knows how many art pieces and photographs were actually produced for the home. "Not one of us had time to count the pieces. The production was done so fast and so many people were working around the clock to create the perfect output for the artful images Kimberly had captured we can only guess that well over 50 portraits line the walls of the family home and every other usable space for display,” she said. “In my 34 years with BWC, I have never experienced such an innovative use of photographic art than Kimberly Wylie and our team members at BWC were able to bring together for the Ruiz family.”
