Norman Jean Roy! He’s all Around Town!

12 Dec

Have you ever wonder why ad photos look so wonderful?  It takes a talented photographer to pull you in, sell you and then surprise you with their talent!  I love photographers and just wanted to give you a heads up, when looking through magazines or at billboards…that the some of the amazing work behind it all belongs to Norman Jean Roy!

Especially during the Holiday season, you will see his work and many companies know him, seek him out… he’s ranked as one the top industry photographers!    Take Banana Republic’s Holiday advertisements, that’s his work!  And there are many others!  You can have the beautiful clothes, gorgeous models and a great makeup team; but it takes a talented photographer to capture it all; conveying the message!   Norman Jean Roy does just that and does it well!

Norman Jean Roy , a native born of Montreal can give you a photo to grab you (it only takes 5 to 6 seconds to get your attention for a photo)! In my point of view, if you study his photos, there is always the emphasis of the subject’s eyes.  Though numerous  shots may be taken, the one that he selects always shows captivating eyes!  He also has a wonderful life story on becoming a photographer; it will inspire you.  Please read his bio steps in Vogue®, by clicking this –> NORMANJEANROY.

Here are some more exciting photos!  Next time, when looking at photos; whether it’s on billboards, magazines or catalogs; take a moment to look at the credits to see all collaborators which made it happen!  I’ll bet you now will recognize this photographer’s name Norman Jean Roy!  “That’s him! 🙂

Now, let’s just say or I can imagine if it was asked of me what photographer’s work do I admire?  I would say Norman Jean Roy!!!!! He’s would be my 1st choice of course; I would love him to be thee one photographer to take my photos! He’s as talented as they come!  🙂

Luther 3 with Idris Elba

BBC America’s Luther – Season 3! Anxiously Awaiting!

2 May

Idris Elba as John Luther, BBC America Luther 3 mini-series

OK, it’s time already!!!!  I’m having a Luther withdrawal!!   See I am a certified fan!  This is the time where I get all giddy about Luther.  Fans already know, but this post is about for those who are not that “hip” about Luther, played by Idris Elba.

Early January, BBC America had announced that it will co-produce yet another series!  The third installment of Luther,  a Golden Globe was awarded to Idris Elba for his role.

This time it will be a four-part miniseries set to premiere as part of BBC America’s Dramaville.  I don’t know the  airdate yet; but as soon as I find out… I will definitely share!

Elba will display his role as the unethical, but brilliant detective and his team:  Warren Brown (DS Justin Ripley), Dermot Crowley (DSU Martin Schenk) Nikki Amuka-Bird (DS Erin Gray), and Michael Smiley (Benny Silver) will be right there, partaking in the mayhem.

I remember when Luther first aired, it was stated it would not last; in fear of cancellation..dumped.  Due to the fan base and the rippling story writing, it was not long it was global talk.  Before you could blink an eye, talks were about would there be a 2nd installment and here we ALL are awaiting the 3rd installment impatiently.  At least I am!!!

Now I am one of the people who loves a mystery, here in the States I am always watching the PBS’s for any detective series airing.  I can see the  John Luther character also quickly becoming one of their detective staples.  This would be only well after BBC America has decided to syndicate the entire Luther series!

So don’t forget, BBC America’s new Dramaville franchise, it is said to become the home for groundbreaking British drama.  So cheers to Neil Cross, a brilliant, brilliant writer.  The executive producer Phillippa Giles for the upcoming 4th installment of Luther again in a four-part mini-series. Idris Elba will be co-producing the series too!

Congratulations once again on Elba’s 2011 Golden Globe award and Emmy nomination in 2011 , plus his second consecutive NAACP Image Award nomination for his John Luther performance.  He has come a long way from ‘The Wire”, wishing him and his other cast members much success!

So what am I going to do while waiting for the series to begin.  I going to plan a Luther fest at my house to watch Luther’s first and second series again.   Then will I’ll  be really ready for the 3rd series to begin!   Neil Cross…..I can’t wait to find out the storylines!

ALICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
