VIDEO/MULTIMEDIA PROJECTS: GETTY IMAGES INITIATIVE PROGRAM

This is a video on a special group of Wyandanch High School students from Long Island, NY. This past January we started a photography club called the Getty Images Initiative Program. Thanks to our friends a @canonusa We handed Canon SLR Cameras and lenses to the students who never touched a camera before. We started from scratch. Shutter speed, aperture, etc. Last week we had our gallery at the school to showcase the students work and it was quite successful. I am very proud to have been a part of this program. Thanks to my co founder Gerren Nixon for your undying commitment to the kids and the program. Thanks to the Suffolk County Deputy Police Commissioner Risco Mention Lewis and to Principal Paul Sibblies for your support on the project. Thanks to Canon USA for helping with the gear. Thanks to outstanding photographers Frank Franklin of the Associated Press and Arturo Holmes from Getty Images for taking the time to speak to the kids and sharing your wisdom this year. And thanks to the students for trusting in us and putting forth the effort to succeed. Very proud of you all indeed.
