Keatley Liberia Video

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under BTS, Videos

I feel really good about this video, and I think it presents an honest look at my trip to Liberia with MiiR this past January.  Several of my images were recently selected in the 2011 PDN Faces contest, and I thought this would be a good excuse to put together a video that shows a little more of what the experience was like and how the images came together.  I cannot say enough about my editor for this video, Andy Maier.  He put so much thought and hard work into this, and his efforts made all the difference.  I feel blessed to be able to work with wonderfully creative people, such as Andy and everyone else I have been creating with this past year.

The man at the beginning of the video is Pastor Kondoh, and he will be coming to Seattle in just a couple of weeks for a project MiiR CEO Bryan Pape and I are working on.  I can’t wait to see him again.  This will be a trip of many firsts for him, including his first time out of Africa, and his first time on an airplane.  Without sounding like a tease, I do have a little bit of freedom to talk more about the project I referred to above.  You can hear about it in greater detail on the podcast interview I did with Faded & Blurred recently.  I start talking about it around minute 40.


JK – as always, awesome. Great to see you and your work going places.

Photography assignments that take you into another culture help a person to grow photographically as well as spiritually. They picked the right person for the job.
