Photographer As Director

So, you’re a photographer thinking about video and/or directing moving pictures? Then pick up a copy of this month’s American Photo Magazine, or read the article Photographer As Director here. Editor Miki Johnson reveals her journalistic chops as she digs in with celebrity photographer/videographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, multimedia journalist Stephen McGee, the remarkable Anthony Mandler, Emmy-award-winning online storyteller guru, Brian Storm (great guy!), and some funny looking photographer named Chase Jarvis. A wide breadth of backgrounds from those guys, for sure, which makes for some interesting comparisons on what photographers are doing with moving pictures.

Online version of the entire article American Photo Magazine: Photographer As Director here.

Downloadable PDF of my little chunk of the story (to keep the file small) here.

[Thanks to those of you who reminded/encouraged me via email and recent comments to post this story. I gave the interview to editor Miki Johnson quite some time ago and hadn’t seen the magazine on the newsstand yet. BTW, if you’re not familiar with my videos, get with the program!

    Absolutely wonderful video. I learned so much more about eagles from this video. We boat on the Mississippi River in Red Wing, MN and share an area by the lock and dam spillway with a pair of eagles for years now. We will anchor out for a weekend and watch their antics and feeding. They have swooped down in front of our boat to catch fish in the early mornings, one even dragged a turtle out of the river and proceeded to feed on it on shore. As noted in the video they are certainly territorial chasing out any hawk that dares to enter their domain. So looking forward to summer again to visit them.

    I might personally favor Google. Both FB and Google would benefit from it, but we would probably benefit more from Google taking it over. In the case of Google+ it is just a matter of time. Facebook was lucky it didn’t really really need to compete with something as “good” as facebook, the competition was just lacking a lot of features along with a global approach.Google+ is excellent to Facebook, nevertheless it has a bigger challenge to get popular.Just look at VHS and Betamax. Betamax was better but lost due to bad marketing/licensing.Danny recently posted..Black & Decker NPP2018 18-Volt Cordless Electric Pole Chain Saw

    Good post made here. One thing I’d like to say is always that most professional job areas consider the Bachelor’s Degree like thejust like the entry level standard for an online course. Whilst Associate College diplomas are a great way to begin, completing ones Bachelors presents you with many entrances to various careers, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Diploma Programs available via institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online variations of their degree programs but commonly for a extensively higher payment than the providers that specialize in online college degree plans.
