This marks a new foundation and path for me in which I can promote my photography and videography/cinematography work and take more control of an independent entrepreneurial lifestyle.
High profile clients of mine have been the likes of R&B music artist Nhojj, the BLOOM Party events, and THPAC (Thelma Hill Performing Arts Center) with dance theater. Additionally, my nature photography work is featured in a newly released book called Words of Simplicity For Life by Willifred S. James. Please pick up a copy of the book at http://bookstore.authorhouse.
The home page of my website greets, graces and treats you to a 5 minute montage of my photography portfolio with percussion music (turn those speakers on!!!). You can also see my complete CROSS-SAMPLING PORTFOLIO at your leisure by navigating the easy menu (orange lettering) on the home page ---> Photographic|Imagery | CROSS-SAMPLING PORFOLIO where I have 10 different galleries hi-liting the various genres of my work.
You can also create a "favorites" list and also purchase prints of any of the images on my website and have them shipped to you. Simple click and buy.
Next, my first (experimental short) film TWO (2008) is featured on my website also, BUT -- this time around it is REMASTERED in a LETTER-BOXED HI-DEFINITION 720P presentation with a newly added stereo sound EFX track layer and new titles... so if even if you already saw the film back in 2008 please check out the slightly newer version. TWO is set in 1970 Vietnam and about an African-American soldier (code named "Pocket Knife") where his platoon of men are killed in a surprise ambush by enemy Viet Cong forces. Armed with just his training, his wits, his weapon and a mysterious photograph, Pocket Knife is determined to complete the vital mission alone. Or can he? --
As a complementary piece to TWO, on the home page under Motion|Picture Imagery | Behind-The-Scenes EXTRAS there is a 64-page PDF that is available for downloading and viewing which explains in detail the behind-the-scenes production of TWO from the conceptual storyboards to principal photography to the post-production workflow in the digital domain. It's a nice convergence of still photography and video, especially with the explosion of DSLR cameras offering both art forms in one.
Additionally, my videography reel (which will be uploaded shortly - just after new year's) showcasing my video work is under the orange menu ---> Motion|Picture Imagery | Videography Reel so be sure to check that out. I'm working with up & coming young artist Doice John (doicejohn.carbonmade.com)
My biography is available on the website and I am based in New York City. Currently I am working on a documentary about the Black same gender loving (SGL) organization ADODI.
I look forward to working with anyone in the future to create some photographic|imagery (still images) and motion picture|imagery (videos/films) magic for your project or event.
You can easily contact me about discussing a project or event, and price quotes by using the CONTACT link on my website's home page.

So, on that note I come full circle and end with the spirit of Ujamaa (oo-JAH-mah-AH): Cooperative Economics.
