Feature Friday // Giles Duley: Half man, Half camera

Wow! I just finished watching this awesome  TedTalk by Giles Duley. In light of our new photojournalism class starting I think this presentation speaks loud and clear about an awesome service you can provide as a photographer. It’s so true that the more you make your life about other people and serving them, the more God is able to use you for His glory, because it’s ultimately about Him! 

Our DPJ class has been doing assignments called “Meet a Stranger”. Each week they have as a photo assignment to go out and meet a new person, photograph them and get their story. Sounds scary and cool all at the same time right? Check out their blog posts about meeting strangers in their town.

Feature Friday // Lisa Kristine: Photos that bear witness to modern slavery

Our instructor, Hannah Brandau, has a heart for giving a voice to the voiceless. This is a very powerful presentation by a photographer who is raising awareness of the slavery that is going on in our world today. The numbers are astonishing and the pictures are heart-breaking.

The PhotoEx: Thailand 2013 leaves for Bangkok this weekend. Pray for them as they serve by making a promo video for House of Grace. Also be praying for House of Grace and the work they do to help girls caught and/or in danger of being enslaved.

Feature Friday // Jill Thomas Photography

Jill Thomas is a wedding photographer in Utah. Why is she being featured here today? Because she is a photographer who will, hopefully, inspire you!


What’s cool about her website:

I like her idea about using pictures to talk about who she is. That’s pretty rad.

She isn’t JUST a wedding photographer. She does other stuff too. Like food and life and picnics!

And lastly, she uses a polaroid camera {Derks does too!} and film cameras. That’s pretty sweet.

Go ahead. Check out her stuff. It’s really good.

{what do you think about using polaroids and/or film cameras? Fun or Scary? Write your thoughts below!}
