Dec. 12th, 2011 — VII announces a series of five free online seminars in which VII photographers talk about their expansion into new areas of creative and commercial work.
With long experience at the forefront of photojournalism, the photographers of VII Photo Agency have adopted the new approaches to making dynamic creative output in the areas of FASHION, MUSIC, LIFESTYLE, NARRATIVE and DOCUMENTARY. Since the agency’s foundation in 2001, VII has been responsible for creating and relaying to the world many of the images that define the turbulent opening years of the 21st century. Now the photographers are applying their photojournalistic skills in surprising new contexts and in this series of seminars they will talk about their creative processes and share the techniques behind their visual journeys.
In the live interactive sessions the photographers will discuss new visions, new audiences and new equipment, and will answer questions from participants. The seminars will be free to all participants.
The series launches Friday December 16 at 12.00 EST / 17.00 GMT with “Poetry in Motion.”
Seamus Murphy talks with Brian Storm of MediaStorm about how his experience of shooting video in Afghanistan using a new generation DSLR has lead him to a new and unexpected career opportunity in the music business. Since 2010 he has shot 12 short films for PJ Harvey, the music sensation from UK, for her album “Let England Shake.” Central to this will be a discussion of his innovative approach to the project, how to work with a musician and how the project eventually turned into a creative tour de force with screenings at multiple international film festivals. Attendees will learn how to develop their vision, which in association with the right gear can transform their professional practice.
