I wanted to share some incredible Photography events that are coming up in the Boston Area in the month of June.

The first event is Flash Forward Boston.  This is being held in Fairmont Battery Wharf on JUNE 7-10, 2012.  If you are an emerging photographer I highly suggest that you should consider  attending this festival, it should provide you with new opportunities, new professional contacts and well as new friends.   I am going to be there as a volunteer plus I plan on attending the lecture being chaired by Jim Fitts and Cary Wolinsky titled The Secrets to Getting Your Work Seen and Exhibited

The second event in on June 12th and is being organized by the American Society of Media Photographers of New England   They are having an Annual Celebration on June 12, called Ride the Waves With ASMP NE.  (I should tell you that I am also a member of the board)  Check out their website for more information. (The best part is that you do not have to be a of ASMP member to come!)

The last event is HOW Design Conference which is being held June 22-25, 2012 at the Hynes Convention Center

You’ll get four days packed with creative inspiration, expert information on communicating with your clients, from-the-trenches advice on growing your career, cutting-edge software instruction, plus a wealth of innovative ideas and great design work.  Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and mingle with some of the industry’s “revolutionary” design thinkers like Chip Kidd, Joseph Duffy, Debbie Millman, David Sherwin, Armin Vit, and Christopher Simmons, just to name a few.  Go to the ASMPNE.org’s website for information as well as a discount code to save $100 off.

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.
