I’ve Been Framed

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under BTS, Press & Interviews, Videos

Thank you to everyone who wrote in and asked the fine folks at FRAMED to do an interview with me. It was very flattering to get the call to do this, and fun to spend the day with Melissa and the whole crew. I am blown away by what a great job they did with this video from top to bottom. They actually made me look somewhat respectable, which is no small feat.  In about 15 years, when Isla is an unruly teenager, I am going to make her watch this video, and then I will look her in the eyes, and say, “Respect”.

I know that 36 minute ticker may scare some of you, but I got several comments and emails today from people who said they didn’t plan on watching more than three minutes, and ended up getting sucked in and watched the whole thing.  Hopefully that is incentive enough to press play.  Even if you only have time for three minutes.  There are no axes, or wood carving in this video, but there are a couple of pretty funny moments with a (Spoiler Alert!) karate master.  Which reminds me, I am really excited you get to meet some of my creative companions who pop up in the video as well.

As always, thanks so much for your interest and support of my work.  It means a lot to me, and thank you again to FRAMED!

Podcast Interview on Faded & Blurred

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under Press & Interviews

The blog Faded & Blurred which recently posted a really nice article about my photography, also just interviewed me for their podcast series.  Jeffery came up with some thoughtful questions, and I like how our conversation covered topics not often discussed in typical interviews.  It is also worth mentioning I make a pretty big announcement part way through the interview.  It wasn’t necessarily something I was planning on talking about just yet, but it made sense in the context of our discussion and I think the time is right.  That is all I will say about it for now.  You are going to have to listen for yourself to find out the details.  Thanks for listening, I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you to Jeffery Saddoris for his support and interest in my work.  Here is the link to the interview.

Adorama TV: Video Interview with John Keatley

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under Blog, Press & Interviews

Here is my new video interview on Adorama TV, hosted by Mark Wallace.  I was really impressed with Mark’s questions, and I think the video turned out great.   Some of the questions include the gear I use, what it was like photographing Annie Leibovitz, how I approach photographing celebrities who are aligned with hot issues, and much more.  I am going to keep this pretty short because of the video, and there  isn’t really anything I need to add.  Thanks for taking a look, I hope you enjoy it.
