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!  🙂

Hurricane Sandy – Small Acts of Kindness

Hurricane Sandy and the NorthEasterner storm has come and gone! Leaving such devastation and so, so many people in despair, trying to overcome the shock of their lives changed!

The disaster also shows the resiliency of people and how the little things that matter! There are so many acts of kindness being displayed! When at the time of need, there are people who do care!

Here is just one wonderful act, that I had to share! Hurricane Sandy with its destruction had torn up over 100,000 homes, people’s belongings unrecoverable! However this one young lady noticed photos and belongings near her home; where she decided to hold on them and display them in her yard!

Amanda Casella, a 17-year-old high school senior from Tottenville, found hundreds of photos strewn throughout the woods in her neighborhood and said she wants to get them back to whoever they belong to.

If by chance, just a mere hope that she could return a little happiness…anyone could have one of their memories back….it’s just such a great thing that she wanted to do! 🙂

Kudos to you AMANDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I plan to help out too, with Thanksgiving being here in a few weeks, the families are going to need to have a hot meal, food goods and some encouraging hope to hang in there for the recovery months ahead. People do care and don’t think you have to do something big, it’s the small things too!
