CHECK OUT CINEMATIC STUDIOS VIDEOS ON AFTERCAPTURE.COM TV
In the past year, we’ve really seen the use of video in the professional photography world grow by leaps and bounds. We’ve had the pleasure of playing a role in that growth by working with some of the biggest names in the industry (e.g. WPPI, Pictage, Adobe, Kodak, etc.)  AfterCapture is the sister publication to our client RangeFinder Magazine.  AC is dedicated to “everything after the capture.” Issues like digital work-flow, printing, color calibration, etc. The new 2.0 version of their website recently launched, and a big part of the site is their ACTV. These are a series of photography related videos. A significant number of the videos on ACTV were produced by our company, going way back to the Adobe  podcasts we produced last year.  You can see all of our videos by clicking on the Publisher tab on the ACTV guide, then selecting “Cinematic Studios” (see photo). Currently on there are interviews with such noted photographers as Yervant, Bambi Cantrell, Jeff and Julia Woods, Bruce Dorn, Parker Pfister, Ryan Joseph, Catherine Hall and more. Future Kodak videos in the works star commercia/fashion photographer Matthew Jordan Smith, and wedding/portrait photographers Brook Todd, Kay Eskridge, and Tim Walden.
