The presence and variety of motion imagery in today’s world is growing. From Instagram videos to short films, web series to corporate applications, from livestreams to fine art installations — video is everywhere we look.

In recent years, many still photographers have started to add motion capture to their portfolios, and the line between those working strictly in stills and strictly in motion continues to blur.

During this special event on May 11, you will hear from three professionals who have successfully transitioned to working in motion alongside their traditional stills work. They will discuss all aspects of their experience from why they decided to incorporate motion into their body of work, to what challenges they faced when first starting out and how they market themselves in a new industry. There will also be ample time for audience Q&A after the panel discussion.

AbelCine specialists will also be on hand to give an overview of some of the most important technical aspects to be aware of when starting to work with motion imagery.

Featured APA Speakers

  • Keziban Barry

Following an early career as a photo editor at National Geographic Adventure Magazine, Keziban dedicated herself to further exploring and combining her love of art with her past documentary experience. She’s since developed her personal photographic mission, focusing her craft on capturing the cinematic “just before” and “just after” of a momentous action. Her interest and fascination with capturing this crucial moment inspired her to explore motion in an effort to better understand the meaning of a scene. To date she has completed three shorts and is currently in production of her fourth. Keziban resides in New York City where she continues to advance her career as photographer and director.
