Raphael Alves can give us all a great deal of inspiration. The photographer, located in Manaus, Brazil, undertook a project to begin photographing his neighborhood. His approach is classic photojournalism, capturing secret moments, candid action, and hidden beauty. But capturing what is real and what is in your face, should one only happen to look closer. There is colorful lyricism in today's featured video outlining Raphael's project and showcasing some of his beautiful work.
The idea behind photo sessions is to not be formal and stiff. It should be to capture the moments - to snap this time in history. Let kids be kids and have fun - relax! We have plenty of ways to keep little ones busy and after photographing children for over 20 years, I know what works! When it comes to family sessions, it may take some time, but if you can trust the experience, we can capture amazing moments.
Canadian photographer Joey L, based in Brooklyn, NY, has always been fascinated with travel. His new flavor of photojournalism is to turn a sensitive eye as a photographer to preserving traditional ways of life that are endangered. Today's Video Pick is a behind-the-scenes short documentary of one of Joey L's photo shoots, and you'll see how he and his crew - as well as hired local assistants - become more than just distanced observers when they travel into the Indonesian rainforest to take photographs of the Mentawai people. A young team of adventurous professional photographers, traveling with their gear and perhaps the most important things of all, an open mind and heart, preserve the dignity and everyday lives of people who choose not to conform to contemporary traditions. Visit the Joey L website for his outstanding portfolio. It's inspirational and provides our photography students with yet another professional pathway option, combining the love of travel with a love of photography.

I'm always looking for photographers who use simple home setups to showcase their techniques to our students, and I found a great video from Lorenzo Pickett, whose amazing model Eliza Lugo helped to create some wonderful fashion portraits in color and black and white. In our featured video, Lorenzo walks you through his complete setup and discusses lighting, make-up, and his camera lens and settings. The end results have gathered good attention, too - congratulations, Lorenzo! Visit his website for more information.
