A ___ About Nothing: The “Unorthodox Genius” Cameraman

Anyone snapping pics with The Godfather of Soul (even as a kid) has a story worth listening to. Therefore, I’ll let (the now grown) photographer/filmmaker, Marceau Lewis, tell you the rest.

I can bring the best out of anyone with or without a camera, but at least with it, I can let the world see it. -Marceau

Here’s the first of his growing film series that inspired the name of this post, ” A Video About Nothing.”

If you want to see more  of Marceau and his Unorthodox Genius work, check out his website, stalk his Facebook, add him on IG, or follow him on Twitter. He says you’ll like his twitter– “Most people say they’ve never seen anything like it before.” -Marceau

Special thanks to Marceau “Unorthodox Genius” for sharing.

Brittanie Renoj Is One “Bad” Photography Mama

I heard from mommy photographer, Brittanie Renoj– a freelance photographer/blogger with a baby in one hand and Nikon in the other. Based in Los Angeles, her work captures LA city life through a young mother’s lens (and it’s not what you expect).
