The Journey To Peace And Prosperity

Delighted to have had a second opportunity to collaborate with the talented Carol Allen Storey on a multimedia project commissioned by International Alert. Our first collaboration being Fractured Lives.

This project is on cross-border trading between the Democratic Republic of Congo and its neighbours Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi. They are the centre of this trading in the war-torn Great Lakes region of Africa. This trade between neighbours is a journey to peace and prosperity, being a source of income for more than 45,000 traders and brings stability and economic strength to the region.

The images and video were shot by Carol Allen Storey using a Canon 5D MkII. We then collaborated on editing down the imagery. The chosen photographs were then processed using Aperture, Photoshop, Viveza and Silver Efex Pro. The voice over was then recorded in London using a Rode Lavalier microphone and a Roland R26 audio decoder. Finally, the project was assembled and edited in FCP X.

Video Interview From Canon Pro Photo Solutions

In October 2010 I was at the Canon Pro Photo Solutions which was a great success. I was with SnapperStuff showcasing some great bags from Think Tank Photo as well as giving a seminar on my workflow using Apple’s Aperture 3.

I wanted to share a video on the show, which amongst a lot of interesting interviews also has an interview with me (around 15 seconds in). Unfortunately I can’t embed the video, so CLICK HERE to watch it.
