Behind the Lens with Jasin Boland
Australia's own Jasin Boland is one of the world's top Movie Stills Photographers. We are proud to count him not only as a great friend, but also an avid fan of our gear. This video gives you a brief introduction to his focus, his ideals, and his foundation. Not to mention a feature of some *shots he's taken over so many years, and some should definitely look a little familiar if you've seen a movie in the past decade.
*All images are used with permission from Jasin Boland and are owned by all appropriate parties. BlackRapid does not claim ownership over any of the images within.
A Rick Sammon Photowalk
In late April, brilliant photographer Rick Sammon came to Seattle and provided some insight to budding professionals and hobbyists alike. On one Friday afternoon we had the chance to follow him around as he guided a couple dozen photogs on a photowalk.
Event Sponsors: Glazer's Camera in Seattle and Canon
Feature: Youth in Focus
This past spring Ron Henry, fonder of BlackRapid spent a day with the kids and faculty of Youth in Focus, an organization based in Seattle that helps youth who might otherwise lack the means or guidance to do more constructive things with their lives.
"Youth in Focus is an afterschool program that uses intensive photography training as a tool to help disadvantaged teens develop personal voice, positive identity, social skills and artistic skills. We offer free, multi-level classes for teens ages 13-19 in both film and digital photography, and advanced students participate in our job skills project shooting assignments for hire. Classes are taught by professional teaching artists and supported by volunteer adult mentors. In this way we create a community of support around our students that both encourages and challenges them on their journey to a positive adulthood." - (From youthinfocus.org)
Feature: Leading to the "Push"
Grant Korgan is something else. He's a man who will never let life get in the way of his goals. Having been paralyzed during a snow-mobile accident a few years ago, Grant came back with a dream and he came back strong.
In January we had the privilege of getting to sponsor his journey as he traversed the arctic on a "sit-ski" and arrived at the South Pole on the day of the 100th anniversary of the first successful expedition to the South Pole.
His journey will be released later this year in a Documentary entitled, "Push."
