“I come from the belief that photographers make great videographers. As still photographers, we are often taught the old adage that ‘if your picture isn't good enough, you weren't close enough’. And because of this, with a small camera in hand, we aim to get as close as possible - close to our subjects, to the emotional feel of a situation, inside of places previously unseen, close to what feels like the truth. When we are introduced to video that instinct does not change. Photographers often are intimated by this new medium, and often don't know how to shoot to make a scene and a narrative. This is something that must be taught, practiced, and observed. We, as photographers, are arriving with an incredibly rich toolkit to do so.”

As the media landscape changes, and the worlds of visual journalists start to merge, this lecture is designed to discuss how to make the transition from stills to video. Jessica’s will discuss her journey as one of the prominent voices of our imaging community, how she moved from still to motion, from books to TV and how she continues to work in all these formats. Doors open at 6:30PM and the lecture begins 7:15PM.
