Media Storm

I had the opportunity to attended an ASMPNE event on Saturday.  The guest speaker was Brian Storm of Media Storm.   His company is a leading in multimedia.  While he does do a lot of documentary work, I really enjoy this video that his company did. (Love the song more now as well)

This would have to be my favorite video that he showed.  It is a long video but worth it.  What I find more amazing is that there are more days in a year then they are words. (Only 364 words)

Kingsley’s Crossing is the story of one man’s dream to leave the poverty of life in Africa for the promised land of Europe. We walk in his shoes, as photojournalist Olivier Jobard accompanies Kingsley on his uncertain and perilous journey. See the project at http://mediastorm.com/publication/kingsleys-crossing

 

Thanks for visiting and happy shooting

About John-Roy Photography

Photography is the greatest form of self expression. It communicates with my soul; a kind of a “catharsis scream”. This offers me a mental release from my professional career. After using my right brain all day, it is nice to use my left brain to create something meaningful. This brings a yin and yang to my life. When I pick up my camera after work, I prefer to shoot inanimate objects. Using light, shadows and selective focus, I am attempting to give the objects a life force; allowing them to tell a story. Because of this, I sometimes tend to become lost in my perception of light and shadows. It allows me to constantly visualize different angles and perspectives of spaces and even people around me. When I photograph people, I am drawn to capturing them in communal areas. I usually try and catch people off guard to create a pensive state of being which is a window into their souls. You would be surprised how much people tend to let their guard down and become relaxed when they think no one is watching. (Ever notice how differently children behave when they know they are being watched?) I’ve come to this place of artistic expression after experimenting with several other approaches to photography. I finally listened to an art director and a close friend of mine and I redirected my work to reflect my own true artistic expression.
